    My name is Amber and I'm at sixth form studying maths, further maths, physics and psychology. Because my secondary didn't have a sixth form I had to move to a new school, and although I am not diagnosed with anxiety or on medication or whatever - I get incredibly stressed and worried over nothing.

    I have made some friends and I love my subjects but I'm just not enjoying the school environment anymore. Everyone already knows each other and the only other new girl (who came from the same school as me) is super confident and fits in with everyone and people hardly know me. The whole situation is just giving me anxiety but I can't even talk to any of my teachers about it because I don't know them and they don't know me. I really miss my old teachers and I'm just finding it all too hard.

    I love my subjects and I want to keep studying them but I just don't want to go to school. I would happily carry on by myself at home.

    Should I drop out? Is it too late to drop out? Advice?

    from what i understand, you have to be in full time education until the age of 18 now so unless you find a college to go to or a vocational course (by the sounds of your a levels i dont think thats what you want) then i think you dont really have a choice. unless someone can correct me?
