    Please could I get some advice. I have recently started AS levels being the idiot I am I only took three and thought I would be okay I took Psychology, Health and social care and Art. I HATE sixth form with a passion, I have been skiving a lot and my attendance is only 87% because I hate it so much my teachers are awful and only tell me to 'highlight' things and my art teacher is awful. I missed a lesson due to being ill and I asked him what we were meant to do and he said he wasn't going to tell me as he's already explained it once and then told me off the next lesson for not doing the work. I have basically quit art as I no longer go so I only have two a levels I have asked to take another and my head says no as its too late, so i'm screwed.
    Would it be worth it to get an apprenticeship and then pay for online school as then I could afford it defiantly and get my A-levels that way? I already have an apprenticeship if I want it, does this sound like a good idea? As this is the only way out I think I have and I wouldn't mind it as I HATE sixth form, not because of the workload but because of my awful teachers and we get treated like babies still. Any advice? thank you!

    why didn't u change sixth form at the beginning?
    is ur sixth form also have a secondary school? mine does it has secondary school and sixth form
    i am also taking health and social care, psychology but doing ICT
    regards with ur apprenticeship idea; dunno too much about apprenticeship but i think that it would b difficult to do two things... wait... r u deciding to do apprenticeship first and then do A levels (so u basically quieting A levels for now?) if yes; then its not bad idea but u will b a lil behind from ur mates or same age group
