    So i hate school more than any thing my sixth form is the worst and im only doing 3 A levels and I picked awful a levels and my teachers are awful and I literally cry everyday because I hate it so much. I had an idea of quitting and doing an apprenticeship, I have applied for one and they said I can come in for an interview, I was thinking of doing an apprenticeship and then doing my a levels online at the same time...should I do it because I hate school so bad. I think I would be a lot happier??

    Do what makes you happy, if you hate your college, your a level's and the teacher's then perhaps you could just take this year out, get a job or some work experience then retake next year with subjects you actually want to do?

    Hey! If you feel a-levels are not your thing you should consider alternative options. If you're crying everyday you're clearly not happy and being in sixth form isn't for you! I felt that way about sixth form and it was one of the biggest mistakes i've ever made because I chose to complete the year. It's good you're doing something about it! You could consider going to college and doing a-levels part time and doing an apprenticeship. I go to college now and i'm actually enjoying it because I get days off and it's so much more relaxed. Sixth form just doesn't work with everyone. You can always do a-levels next year. Like P.brain you should do whatever makes you happy because if you don't you're just going to end up unhappy which is not healthy. Good luck with the interview!

    Lmao are you sure about that. My future career= Clinical psychologist
    Starting salary: £30,764.
    Highest paying role if you move up the ladder would be: Potentially more than £81,000
    Even if you were a trainee you would get over 25k

    Suck on that. Mc Donalds manager hahah.

    Actually the richest people did quit school because they already knew what to do and school was just waisting their time.

    Yes course it's good enough but what I mean is, why settle for a salary which is the maximum you can get after years of work without qualifications, when that can be your starting salary after a degree?

    *You're

    It's a good thing you'll never be my employer then isn't it? Also, it's good you're sticking with school since your grammar is atrocious. Also, I decided I want to become a clinical psychologist; hence why I am doing a psychology undergraduate degree. You got a problem with that?

    Also you mong, the richest people in the world dropped out of Harvard, Yale etc. Not Secondary or Six form :laugh:
