    I'm just about to take my gcses and I should be getting around 6s (b) in my 10 gcses. I don't want to carry on studying though as I feel little connection with the subjects to real life jobs I'd be interested in, so I looked at other options such as btecs and apprenticeship programs. I really liked the look of an apprenticeship program in business, specifically in social media or event planning however I've been told it's the drop out route. I do not believe this and think it's a good idea but I'm left with doubt and uncertainty to do a btec in it, an a level or the apprenticeship but I'm really sick of school life and studying

    Honestly, just do what makes you happy. You can always pick up more qualifications later on in life if you want/need to and apprenticeships are a great way to earn money while you learn!!
