Oh god I didn't realise it would be this long...oops. Sorry for the massive paragraphs!!!!
So, since Year 11, I've been set on going to sixth form, and didn't think twice about an apprenticeship, but just less than a month before school starts, I've started thinking about apprenticeships. I always thought they were things like hairdressing and building which obviously they're not. Sixth form and school in general has always made me feel stressed, and I have anxiety which makes school even worse.
I've looked up about apprenticeships today, because it seems to me that they are less stressful and easier (maybe?) than going to a sixth form would be, and now that I've actually looked into what an apprenticeship is and seen that I can do an apprenticeship that interests me, it appeals a lot more than sixth form. (how many times am I going to say "sixth form" in one sentence, lol)
I've already applied to a sixth form, the one at the same school I've been to since yr 7, and gone to induction day and all that ****, and I'm just waiting for my GCSE results now. I don't know if its too late to start thinking about an apprenticeship and trying to apply for one since its less than a month away from school starting again. I have no idea how I would go about applying for an apprenticeship, or what would happen with the sixth form, I just really need some advice on this whole thing. Thank you!!
Can't decide between Sixth Form an an Apprenticeship, HELP! Watch

Probably too late to apply for an apprenticeship anyway, but you should wait till you get your grades. If you can go to sixth form, go. No one sane would do an apprenticeship when they could go to sixth form, unless they want to do something really vocational like food technology and become a head chef at a fancy restaurant.
