I received a B at AS Maths this year, which was lower than I'd hoped. I'd been achieving A-A*s in class. Over the Summer I decided I wanted to drop out and do an apprenticeship. However, I started A2 as I was unsure what apprenticeship to do and my Dad wants me to go to university. These past two months I've really struggled to focus, revise or understand any of my subjects. However, my teachers think I get it as I'm able to feign understanding in class. In most of my assessments I get D's.
All this said, I really don't think I can cope with the stress of exams again and am not fully sure what I want to do at uni. In September, I went on a holiday where I got a taste of watersports and I really want to apply for an instructor course.
My dilemma is that my parents don't want me to waste my 'brains'/potential. I don't think I'll achieve the grades to get into uni and don't want to waste time doing something I change my mind about, when I know if I really want it I can d an access course to get in.
Should I drop out? How would I convince my parents and tutors that it's the right thing for me? Please help!
Side note: no experience is required for the Instructor course but I'm worried that also if I only go for it and can't do certain aspects I'll be unsure where to go next.
