    hello there i studies a course at university and unfortunately never met the grade i am now 20 years old and wondering what can i do next. i more or less do not want to re do the year as i feel i would struggle. so what can i do next in terms of a obtaining a successful career. i was wondering can i do apprenticeships at age 20? any advice would be very helpful.

    Can definitely get an apprenticeship in something, what is it you want to do?

    Yeah you can get an apprenticeship any age i think? You're only fully funded ages 16-19 though, so you may have to apply for a loan or whatever?

    I am an apprentice, and so is one of the guys here too and he's 24. There was a woman on the same course as me aswell who was 28 with 2 kids, and she was an apprentice too. Just apply, and the college that the apprenticeship goes through will explain all your options for you! You can deffo get an apprenticeship in your 20's and they're a really good alternative to A levels or Uni! go for it
