    I recently have been kicked out of my sixth form, and was studying 3 btecs after dropping out of A levels. I was in year 13 (I'm 18), so I have left without any a level or btec qualifications. I also failed english gcse, what should I do? Is there anyway I can still be financially successful (60k+ minimum) & how do I go about it? I am interested in computing and electrical engineering.

    I just need some advice.

    Thanks.

    Well, life don't work like that...

    If you don't put the effort in to actually study, you're never going to get to uni and you definitely wouldn't survive it. Which is kinda a cornerstone if you want a high-salary electronic engineering career.

    It's still early days though. Have you looked into apprenticeship schemes?

    Yes, but you havent done yourself any favours. Hopefully iit didnt involve violence or dishonesty.

    1. Youve made it unlikely you will get into Uni in the near future plus you have discipline problems. If you ever get to Uni then you cam try to do well and get a career, which ui cna build on.

    2. You can go back to college and dp ypur exams but no idea if you wont get kicked out. maybe you can transfer some of your btec credits?

    3. Try and get an apprenticeship, but your discipline and attitude might be a problem again. get the rght apprenticeship and you ould get decent training plys a modest salary.

    4 You show some talent and start your own business.

    Ring a careers adbiser or go and see on this week.

    Do you really need advice from strangers on the internet? Also do you really think anyone on TSR is gonna have a fail-proof method of getting you to a £60k/year job. At the end of the day if you really want to be successful your gonna have to push yourself to learn and make use of whatever it is you intend to make a business out of... you said Computing? It's not hard to learn.. pick a language (I recommend Java) then learn to master a platform (I recommend Android) and get involved in some big development, either open source projects or independent app ventures.

    The world is your Oyster, if you don't have loads of money then go out and get some. The process aint gonna be made faster by moping and chatting on Forums.

    Getting expelled would count as a discipline problem for most unis and employers. You will need to decide how you are going to explain that when you are in interview.

    @JavaScriptMaster I suppose you're right. Yea I did want to start my own business but there are many factors to consider, but I will pursue it when I am financially stable & as for learning computer languages, I learned the foundation of html and css, and started learning js but shortly stopped. I'd love to be able to code for android devices and one day for ios. Im guessing by your name you know how to code in javascript? and if so, would you mind how you went about it, where you learned it and how long did it take you to get a good foundation in it.
    Thanks

    @jenigma I'd never join the military

    Well then. That's me out of ideas :lol:

    I would advise you to resit English GCSE though as most employers look for good grades at at least GCSE level.
