    I have recently started sixth form and, to be frank, i don't like it at all already. The subjects that i have taken are really interesting (Sociology, geography, philosophy and psychology). But i can't keep up with the work and it's all becoming too much for me to cope with. I am thinking, if it's possible that maybe i can leave sixth form after my AS's and find an apprenticeship. I want to be a train driver, so something along the lines of that. Is this possible? and how could i apply for an apprenticeship?

    So there's a few different questions in there.
    Firstly yes you can leave sixth form at the end of As levels (or any other time), just make sure that the sixth form you are at are actually having people sit AS levels as I believe some no longer are due to linear A levels.
    Yes you should be able to find an apprenticeship in something, but I don't think any railway company can take on under 18s for health and safety reasons.

    IMO I think you should give it all your all, and then once you get your results make a decision. That means working hard, keeping organised to make life easier

    You can leave but to make it easier for yourself maybe drop one subject and just do 3?
