    To begin my story with, I actually didn't plan to take A Levels. I went to take A Levels as my free time while waiting to get accepted into another college taking Diploma. But sadly, I didn't get accepted.

    In the beginning of sixth form, I was alright and I can cope with the subjects. I take Chem, Phy & IT. But as time goes by, I became so depressed. I hated going to school, I skip a few days of class and I never skip any class before in high school. I cried in school because it was too much for me. I feel like dying and I just want to die. My results for my first examination is not great either, I got 2 U's and 1D. I wanted to quit school so bad, but my dad didn't allowed me.

    I didn't have a lot of friends here, I only have one with me from high school. I know that sixth form is supposed to be a place to grow but I don't really enjoy sixth form. I knew sixth form will be a pain in the ass that's why I didn't want to go take A Levels in the first place.

    I'm going to have my End of Year examination next month and I was thinking if I got poor results , I will stop school and take Diploma next year but if I got good results, I will stay

    Is this a good decision?

    if theres an opportunity to take Diploma, I would do it, doesn't sound like youre enjoying A-Levels and theres no point been unhappy-usually results in bad grades from no motivation.
    if you cant take it then its best to stay and just try make the most of sixth form

    You need to do what is best for both your health and wellbeing, as well as your future. If you're not coping well and aren't happy doing A levels, then you shouldn't have to do them. I think your decision is a good way to deal with it! If you're coming out with poor results then it's not good for your mindset or your future options. I'd definitely see how they turn out and consider a diploma. Your happiness is so important, take care, and good luck!
