    Just finished my first 6 weeks at college, having finished secondary school and I find myself considering stopping college but don't know what to do. I'm currently studying maths, economics and law. Im just not motivated to do work and my attendance after the 6 weeks is a mere 70%. I find some lessons fly by and I enjoy them, where as others drag on for ages and I really dont. The only aspect of college I enjoy is how social it is, other than that I dont want to show up at all. I don't know whether to leave and find something else or stay and just get through it while hating it, any advice?

    The subjects which you have chosen do require a lot of work, so you must be motivated and self-driven towards these. If you are finding lessons boring, why don't you switch to another subject. Sometimes starting a fresh subject with new things can be hard so you need to adjust. Also its hard to do something if you don't enjoy it.

    I've considered it but maths has always been by strongest subject. Also there are no other subjects that really appeal to me and i've asked other students what their subjects are like and no subject sounds that different either

    It is hard in this situation, if you want to continue maths perhaps search for an apprenticeship in maths.
