    I'm hating 6th form...
    I'm studying geography, English and psychology. My school isn't exactly bad, I have friends and supportive teachers but i feel like 6th form really isn't for me...
    I don't want to go to uni, ideally i want to find an apprenticeship in the agricultural sector. The subjects i have chosen are the best of a bad situation, they interest me the most out of what my school has to offer but i don't have much interest/passion/motivation to study them. I've never really enjoyed school but got through GCSEs with good grades as i know qualifications are important and they weren't hard to get through but i'm feeling really demotivated, sitting in classrooms all day is not how i like to learn and i don't see myself doing anything academic in the future.
    I've been looking into apprenticeships but am struggling to find one near me that would suit.
    Is it worth me sticking it out? My school has changed to linear courses so i can't drop out at the end of year 12 with any qualifications but i'm really struggling to keep going...
    My family are trying to be supportive but don't understand, i have 2 brothers who are at uni and they want the same for me.
    Anyone have any advice??

    you should think about changing to college, maybe not for the course you actually want to do if it hasn't got something like it. you can do Alevels at college and maybe a different environment and style of teaching might be good for you
