Can I Drop Out Of Sixth Form? Watch

    I will keep this short. I have a business which is finally about to pay off, I've been working on this for a long time and it's just been finalised. I am set to make quite a lot of money, to say the least. I want to drop out and do this full-time but my parents are having none of it. There is no point in me being in sixth form. I hate it and have absolutely no interest in my subject topics any more. I don't want to go through life without any A-Levels but I am beginning to think this will be worth it in the long run.

    Can I legally drop out and register as self-employed? I am thinking of moving out as well (possibly) and either renting for the time being or maybe even putting a deposit down for a house, it all depends on sales figures. Is this my decision or do my parents actually have the final say? This could potentially turn into my full time career for many years to come, even though it's not what I originally intended to do, and I think I'm comfortable with that idea. I'm having a bit of a crisis though as there are a lot of different paths I could take and I have no idea which one is right. Would really appreciate some advice.

    How old are you and which country do you live in? They've raised the school leaving age (England) to 18; so you have to be in some sort of education or training.
