    Basically in college I'm doing; Psychology A-Level, Business subsid BTEC and Health and social care subsid BTEC. I'm so grateful to be in such a great college however i'm finding things way to hard. I missed the whole of year 10 due to mental health problems and i'm nowhere near recovered so GCSE's were hard enough, I barely pulled through. But college is a step to far possibly? I'm enjoying the freedom however the courses are extremely un-motivating and soul crushing. The only subject I find semi- enjoyable is psychology. With the BTECs I've been getting referrals with almost every assignment and it's causing major anxiety and distress to me. I'm really stuck because it's too late to change courses and I'm not enjoying myself. Just need some advice on what should I do?

    ok first of all, what is your dream job, or at least what sector do you want to get in?
    is it health and social care? business? psychology?

    I'm not 100% sure honestly, but if I had to pinpoint what I would like to do the most is mental health care e.g. psychologist, care worker, nurse etc.

    ok, then do health and social care by itself, you may think that it's a "low thing" or smth, but trust me, you can take it as a degree if you're planning on going to uni after graduating from college
    or do psychology, but you're going to have to do 3 more a levels
    im gonna ask you a question, either answer it as honestly as possible or just dont answer it at all
    do you think you're capable when it comes to college work and studying? as in, are you able to limit how much you procrastinate? are you someone who actually revises and stuff?
    because if not, I'd recommend doing BTEC instead of A levels

    The reason I chose the BTECs was because I just can't revise I find it impossible however the BTECs are constant course work and i procrastinate alot!!

    same, I chose btec because I simply flopped gcse
    and trust me, btec is nothing compared to a levels
    a levels is revision literally 24/7, no sleep at all, and btec is basic stuff, especially health and social care
    so take health and social care imo, there's a lot of stuff you can do with it, including mental health etc
    I'm taking childcare and planning to be an occupational therapist
