I got kicked out of sixth form what do I do now Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I did a levels (i'm 16 and in first year) and I was so bad at them so they said they didn't think it was a good idea to put me through to the summer exams and they said no results are better than bad results and that I could restart again in September on a lower course or a level if I am ready since my GCSEs are good.

    So it is the start of February, what do I do until then? They said I could do a gap year thing and just do voluntary work somewhere a few days a week and it would look better on my CV rather than just a full time job (cos I got a part time job)

    Please say suggestions? Anyone or know anyone who's been here before ?

    Also please like since I'm a year behind in September (which isn't that bad cos I know loads of people who are a year behind) so are there any 2 year courses I can start in September that are like lower level than A level ? Any suggestions or do they have to be 3, I know nothing about lower courses.

    Let me guess, you did basically no work whatsoever?
