    Maybe you should consider leaving sixth form and having a good think about what you want to do. You can always go to college at a later date once you have a plan and are feeling more motivated.

    I left school a month into S6 (equivalent to Yr 13) when I felt it was pointless and not getting me anywhere - and then I went to college the following year once I had a plan in mind. This went really well for me.

    However, I also had a bad experience as well. When I was in Honours year at university, I was so overwhelmed and fed-up with my course but I didn't have the courage to leave because of how much time and money I had sunk into it. I let it get way too bad. I ended up having to take medical leave, advised by my lecturers, and was referred to a mental hospital by my GP for help. It was a horrible place to be in and I was forced to move back in with my parents as I just couldn't cope anymore (and both they and my doctors were uncomfortable that I was living in a third-story flat, where I was alone most of the day, with an open balcony). I wish I had acted sooner rather than letting it get as bad as I did. And I wouldn't wish anything like this onto you or anyone. If you need to take a step back from your education to revaluate your goals, take it. Forcing yourself when you are unhappy will just wear you down.
