    Hi, i'm new to this..

    I'm an electrical apprentice, 21 years of age & in my final year (3rd year) of college and finish in the summer. Only problem i've got another 18-24 months on top then to finish my portfolio & final exams which can't be done any quicker.

    I hate what i do, i just don't want to be working with my hands for the rest of my life just about getting by, thrashing my body and working stupid hours.
    I've applied to do an access to law course come september and would love to go on to uni to study Criminology it's something that i really enjoy, would find it interesting and all i want to do is do something i enjoy and be interested in. I'm just sick of doing something i know i will never do in the future and don't enjoy.

    Any help would be great? Am i stupid to quit now and not get my qualification? Or just wasting my time doing something i will never do?

    Thanks
