    Those qualifications could mean the difference between getting a cashier job to a £40,000 a year job.

    I don't know anything about young firefighter programs, sorry. I myself am currently thinking of dropping out too, have you told your parents or anyone about dropping out?

    And what makes you want to drop? For me its being treated like a child and I'm not interested in my subjects (my fault for picking them)

    It’s not what I expected but I don’t what I did expect! I’m not enjoying some subjects I took and I really just want to go straight into firefighting but it’s kind of fustrating cause I can’t due to the fact I’m 16

    I dropped out of my sixth form in the May of year 12, as I hated everything about the subjects I chose and the sixth form I was at. After having a few months off school just working at Tesco I was so glad to go back to education! I think at 16 you think working life will be so much nicer than school but once you actually start full time work (ie 5 days a week not just a Saturday job) you'll be grateful to go back to school. I moved sixth form and changed subjects and I don't know if that would be an option for you, but I'm so glad I did it as I am much happier than I was previously. Also just my opinion but 2 (or 3) years is such a short period of time overall in your life, and now is the easiest time to get A levels - doing them later in life if you decide to change career will be a lot more difficult.
