Im not really sure where to put this, so sorry if it's in the wrong place!
After thinking about it for a while, I have decided to stop doing A levels (I am in the 1st year) my sixth form and parents all agree this is the best decision for me as A levels just aren't the best thing for me.
I have applied for a business college Betec at a college, I will start this in September. This seems like a good course and will be much better for me compared to sixth form.
Please do not tell me I should stick with A levels, I have made my mind up and this is the best for me
The thing is - at sixth form I am currently doing geography, sociology and English language.. All these subjects are linear which means I can not get AS levels in them (I would have to do the whole 2 years). Therefore there is no point in me carrying on and finishing the first year as I get nothing out of it!
My question is - what can I do from now to September as legally I have to be in education (im 17, I turn 18 in December)
I cannot find any short term apprentiships which would finish before September.
I have a job which I could do full time - would this count as education? Being im full time work?
I really need to find something to do before September!
Can someone let me know what the laws are and what counts as full time education?
thanks in advance!!

youre 17, so you can leave and work now, even part time if you wanted to.
just tell your college what your plan is.

You'd need to be 18 to work full time. I think you should just use this time to prepare for college, maybe research around subject to get a head start so when you begin in September, you'd have some sort of knowledge on the course and subject.
