Dropping out of College watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I've been doing a BTEC level 3 Health and Social Care course for about two or three months now, and to be totally frank, it's been killing me. I don't think I can enroll on another course until September. But I know if I stay on the one I'm at now I simply wont last.

    My half-formed plan is to do a gap year (I'm 16 by the way), and enroll on a different course in September to continue with my education, unless something better comes up.

    Do any of you have advice on this matter? Perhaps you've been in a similar situation.

    Decide what you want to do. Take some time and really think about it. You've more chance or receiving assistance without a level 3 qualification. It really is best to try and take some time to figure out what you want to do, as it is the rest of your life.
    That's my opinion anyway... =]
Do you like carrot cake?
