So i'm at my last year of high school, and i've decided not to do a-levels.However the law has changed and you need to be in some sort of education until your 18.Which means the only other option I have is to do an apprenticeship which also doesn't appeal to me.So my question is this-if I just don't do anything,what will happen? As in if I don't go to sixth form or college and if I don't do an apprenticeship who's going to know and does anybody care? Is it against the law? Will I be fined?

Technically the law says you have to stay in full-time education at school or college; do an apprenticeship/traineeship; or combine part-time education/training with 20 hours of work per week. However, the government has said it will be no action taken against any young person who chooses not to do these things.
I think you will regret it if you leave school and do nothing. Maybe take a year out, get a part-time job, think about what you want to do and then come back to school or college.

Probably, nothing. I personally couldnt imagine doing nothing though. If you really don't think staying in education is for you, atleast look into an apprenticeship or a job where you could work your way up.
