    Hi I am currently studying animal care and absolutely hate it, I have no idea why I chose it. I have spent all of last term considering dropping it. Today I have decided to drop it but apparently “it is too late to change course” I really don’t want to waste a year of free education studying for a course I really don’t want to do, is there any online courses I could do anywhere because I feel like this would work better for me?Any help on this matter is much appreciated.

    try doing your preferred choice out of school. You can’t change it in school unless you’re like a top student, but self teaching shouldn’t be an issue. Maybe there’s a centre nearby that will take you?

    My school has the same deadline, but tbf I didn’t need to worry. I changed my options is many times I think I tried out half the a level options available (literally - I am doing maths, fm, chemistry and physics, and I tried German, DT and biology during my many subject changes). I regret nothing because I’m 100% certain of being happy with my current choices now, which might not have been the case if I hadn’t tried those other subjects.

    GCSE nostalgia is a b***h.

    I’ve just thought of something, I am unsure if this is allowed but since I failed maths and English last year and have to do them both again for another year,do you think I will be allowed to just drop out of the course I’m doing and then just focus on those 2. That way next year I will have the main qualifications needed to find a course or apprenticeship that I really want?
