I have just started a new school for my A levels and I am finding that A levels aren't really for me, as I am bored a lot of the time in lessons and I'm not finding my work interesting. I have a number of friends who are at a college, I now feel I want to go to, and are doing BTEC courses instead. I know that now is possibly the worst time to try and change, especially as A levels and BTEC's are so different, but 6 out of my 13 GCSE subjects were coursework based and they are the ones I got better grades in, as I don't deal with exam stress all that well. If I had it my way completely, I would get an apprenticeship, but the university I want to go to doesn't yet have them as a possible entry requirement.
Basically, I would love some advice on what to do and whether I should just stick it out as it is only 2 years.
