I'm in my first year of Sixth Form at the minute, due to be starting my second in September 2016 and I hate it. My Sixth Form know that I'm not doing very well, and my family have no objections to me quitting as long as I find something I want to do. The issue is, I chose my A-Levels based on wanting to do a psychology degree but I've changed my mind about that now and actually want an apprenticeship in media.
At GCSE I was a good student, not exactly anything great but I got 5 As, 2 Bs and 1 C so I didn't exactly do badly. I don't hate only my courses, I also hate the entire environment and don't get on well with any of my teachers. I haven't done very well in my AS exams and I just couldn't imagine going through another year of this.
Like I said, I want to do an apprenticeship in media but for a lot of these I would have to move to London or be 18. Are there any other options?
