    Is it worth me spending two more years of my life, plus more debt, for an ordinary degree which I am not even guaranteed, and more likely to not achieve, or would you rather be homeless or be mentally, verbally, and emotionally abused at home.

    Those are my only options

    Do you wanna elaborate a bit on this- what course, & why cant you achieve it?

    Accounting and Finance. First off, I did not want to do this but was forced to. I have different mental illnesses which severely impact my studies but I hide them from everyone except University support and my GP. I tried with the best of my ability and failed 1st year twice, well almost, on my resit year I barely scraped passes and failed 1 module which means I am no longer able to get a honours degree. There are also household problems which affect me. I knew I was never capable of this and wanted to go into an apprenticeship or low end accounting job, but I had no choice.
