    Hey, I'm about 6 weeks into 3 A level courses in history, english and law. I've found that I'm struggling with the amount of work to keep up with and am generally not enjoying it, and thinking of maybe changing to an apprenticeship. I dont suppose I am able to do so this far into the year, and if so, how would i go about doing it? And any advice on what to do?

    You can do one until the age of 24. Why not get your A-levels and do and apprenticeship after that? That way if you ever decide you want Uni, you've got your A-levels.

    Believe me, A-levels when you're older is no walk in the park. I never went to college but want to go to uni now at 24. For you now they are free and if I was you (with my hindsight) I'd stick them out. There are access courses for mature learners but I'd honestly rather have A-levels. They COST a bomb to do at a private examination center. You're 6 weeks in and adjusting to the level of work increase since GCSE. Nobody finds that easy. You'll get there.
