I finished school in the summer of 2015 with decent GCSEs, then I started college doing particularly challenging A-Levels (Chemistry, Maths, Sociology) and retaking my Biology GCSE (to get the entrance grade to study it the next year, because I got a C at GCSE). Long story short, I ended up getting a B at Biology GCSE, a C in Sociology AS-Level and failing Chemistry and Maths. Then I blamed the whole situation on the fact that I wasn't suited to the college that I went to, so decided to change colleges. Now, I've started a new college and a few months in, I just feel so unmotivated and lost and all I want to do is start full-time at my current job, because it's not a dead end job and I enjoy it so much; and I just feel I am so much more suited to that kind of thing rather than being academic. I really want to drop out of college, but I have a friend telling me I should try and do the A-Levels and then start a full-time job, but the A-Levels are so challenging and I feel so unmotivated, and it is too late to change my course, I don't think I'll be able to do it - also, I've already wasted a year. Does anyone have experience with this? Or advice on what I should do? I'm just worried that if I do leave college and start full-time at my job, then if anything happens I will be left with nothing?

Leave college but pursue a new subject that you will enjoy more. Start your full time job whilst studying part-time. At least that way you create a career for yourself without losing out on an education which is critical.
