    Talk to your school about distance learning. Maybe you can study at home and just go in to school to sit your exams or hand in work

    What is it about sixth form that makes you not like it? Is it the work or something else?

    Speak honestly and openly with your school and try to come up with some solution like a reduced timetable and some moral support from the school, possibly like someone said earlier, distance learning. Schools are honestly clueless about a majority of things in people's lives, which is why the best thing you can do is just tell someone how it's affecting you. At the moment, what you're learning you're likely to re-learn in September anyway if you really don't feel up to it. Remember that your health is far more important that going to school - I can say that as someone who's had to spend an extra year in sixth form due to health reasons. Sorting something out before you go back to school in September (if you chose to), not only will be helpful for you but the school too, as they can do something about it. Good luck with everything:hugs:

    Technically this is the law but it's not enforced. Nothing happens if you leave.

    Have you considered changing schools next year and repeating year 12? A college might suit you better. It's more relaxed and you can work at your own pace more. I think it can also be easier to catch up.

    Thanks. I do have a reduced timetable and i spend the majority of time working from home. So i have spoken to school about it.
    Were trying to sort something out but we arent quite sure what to do.

    THANKS!!

    i didnt think of that. That maybe a huge possibility. Is it possible to repeat Year 12 doing different subjects all together?

    THANKS!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah but I dont have anything to do instead. I dont want to just do nothing. If 6th form was enjoyable id actually be alright. I dont want to give up on education but the rate that im going at im going to have a breakdown

    I literally had the same experience as yourself. For some reason, sixth form and myself just didn't click! I ended up quitting and spending 5 months of my life doing absolutely nothing and my sleep pattern was all over the place. Eventually, when I tried to fix it I had a seizure because my mind and body were at odds. So that was a bit of a wake up call!

    I ended up going back to college and it was the best thing I could of done. I'm not suggesting quitting at all. Try and isolate what you're struggling with in particular and ask for help from those that are around you, especially college. If they don't help you then they aren't doing their job!
