    Im 16 and started college in September. I go to college and study level 2 Computing and IT. When I was in school I didn't have a clue what I wanted to do for a living. I was even one of the last people in my year to pick a course at college (IT) I picked that course because it's the only thing I enjoy doing (Video games, graphic design, etc... ( I have no social life and barley any irl friends, except a couple in other courses in college who I hardly see as they have a different timetable). The last 8 days I have been faking an illness because I just don't want to go in.. I know I can easily choose another course, but I really don't know what one to do.....

    I know what you mean, choosing your options can be a very stressful thing as well as studying something that you don't like.

    What I would suggest is looking at a list of every subject offered by your college and look at what you want to study/do. Do they offer something like art or graphic design or anything like that? Also have a look at other subjects, particularly ones you enjoyed at/did well in at GCSE and g from there.

    I believe that doing an apprenticeship is also an alternative so just keep that in mind if not this year then for next year.
