    I'm 19, this is my fourth year in college due to a career change. I use to study Level 3 BTEC in applied science which pushed me and challenged me, I came out with Distinction*, Distinction, Distinction. I applied to university to study veterinary nursing and got rejected from all 5. Needless to say, I wasn't happy and changed my mind... I've always loved cars so thought I'd start a mechanics course and see where it takes me, it's a Level 1. I'm the oldest and most mature student in my class. I watch Netflix for 4 hours a day because the tutors don't bother teaching us! It's a waste of my time and my attendance is 63% because I have more productive things to do at home. It's either I quit or my attendance just gets even lower putting a bad rep on myself. Help + advice needed please!

    Have you looked into an apprenticeship?

    Can you recommend any good shows on Netflix for me to watch?

    can I also borrow your girl so we can chill and get jiggy
