Options after dropping out from sixth form watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all, wondering if you could help. Unfortunately just failed my first year of A-Levels. Decided to drop out as I wanted a change in environment. I have a keen passion for sport and was wondering what the possible options were. I'd preferably like and apprenticeship but all options would be taken on board thanks.

    Do you want to go to university? Regardless, I would personally do a btec, keeps options open in case you decide you want to go to uni (top unis will admit students who studied btecs instead of a levels). You can also do an apprenticeship after studying for your btec, at a higher level than if you went ahead and started an apprenticeship now.
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
