Should I leave sixth form?

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently on my third week at a new sixth form studying English, Psychology and Business. I do not enjoy my subjects apart from Psychology and I feel like sixth form is not for me. I am very tempted to leave but I do not know what I would do if I were to leave. Therefore, I feel like I cannot leave even though I really want to. I'd like to go into the social work field when I'm older and I feel like A-levels are required. Any advice?
    Thank you

    You could do a BTEC and get into social work so that's an alternative to A levels?

    Look for another college its not too late, just make sure they do the same exam borders as you and if you dont like the subjects then change them, like I said it's not to late.

    I went to a sixth form for a week worst mistake ever, decided to go to college instead, best decision ever and felt good to be there which is what you want.
