    I'm currently at AS year right now, and I wonder if is it good way to drop out of college, because I currently study Math and Double IT end of AS year I think i will get (B for M (or A if I lucky) and DD for IT) but I also thinking about drop my AS year to do full A Level qualifications.
    Now, I just thought about apprenticeships, I don't might about go to school or work but I kind a older than the rest 2 yrs in my college and english is my second language.

    I thinking about business apprenticeship but I don't know what I should do?

    Why don't you stick it out, drop double IT at the end of the year and just pick up business, graphics and textiles whilst in A2? Else you'll just be restarting maths again..

    If you know what type of apprenticeship you want look at some and ask about them.

    Yup. I will start my A-Level again, which is do my math again (waste 1yr but I don't want later on I will regret becauses of it)
    drop double IT and math then in the end of the AS year. i will get B(A) in AS math. DD in IT ( or Dict in one BTEC )

    Well if I redo my A level then. math, business, textiles and grahpic is the subject i will pick.


    I don't know if it is the good ideas to drop out of college or not

    You don't need to start again though!! If you still want to do your maths, finish AS maths, then carry onto A2 but pick up business textiles and graphs at AS as well. Loads of people do another AS at college and stay for a 3rd year

    Id carry on with the courses you are doing now, and carry them on until the end of the school year, so at least you stil have some qualifications out of it.
    In the meantime, look into apprentiships. See what there is out there, and maybe start applying for them if you see any that interest you.
