    I'm 17 and I've just finished my AS exams (I've applied to stay on for A-level) but I've decided that I no longer want to stay in sixth form or school in general and just go straight to work. I don't see myself going to Uni and I know that once I start working and earn my own money I'll be happy so please don't advise me to stay on at school because it's just not working for me. I've read that I can leave school and work as long as I'm at least in part-time education until I'm 18 but I really don't want to be in any form of education and I turn 18 in November so I would only be in education for 2 months so there is no point doing part-time anyway. So how would I leave school to work? Do I fill out a form or something?
    Thanks.

    Legally you have to be in education until you're 18 so part time it is i guess.

    it's a year, just get on with it - get a part time job so you're employable when you finish, you'll at least leave yourself with more options for the future

    Please really think about not finishing off your a levels you might end up regretting it later. Why are you thinking of leaving school? What do your parents say?
