    Would I be able to get a steady job and maybe afford a cheap place to rent without going any further than getting GCSEs at a pass level?

    Straight after GCSEs? No. Firstly you have to stay in education, so at best wage wise you'd be in an apprenticeship, which has lower minimum wage requirements so would be very unlikely to earn you enough to pay rent on your own. Also, you would have a lot of difficulty finding a landlord who would be happy to rent to a 16 year old, especially as I'd guess you have no savings to pay the deposit and potentially several months rent up front.
    Apprenticeships would be a perfectly valid option which could help you work towards this at later stage, but equally so are A levels, so you should consider all options before making a decision.

    Even if you find a job that employs with only GCSEs needed for qualification, if you apply to the job, and someone else, who has 3 A-Levels, and similar GCSEs to you also applies, who do you think that they will employ (Hint: not you)
    Stay at home and school and get A-Levels done, then when you are done, you will be over 18 and have good qualifications, so you will be more likely to get chosen for the job that you want

    Haha no it's not, YOU are useless, looking down on me for failing GCSEs when I had severe mental health issues, you have no idea, I'm so glad I have compassion unlike you. Let me guess, you're some sad insecure loser who takes the piss out of others to make themselves feel better. I hope you lose everything.

    OMG just get help and study hard it’s not DIFFICULT. You have asked and asked and asked on TSR and you just don’t get the answer you want do you? You NEED qualifications you NEED experience and you NEED education believe it or not to have a chance of succeeding.
    Unless you start at basic low wage apprenticeship or entry level job and work you way up over the years (again you’ll likely need A Levels or BTEC or NVQ at least) then what else do you expect to do?? Rent per month costs around £600-£1000 plus council tax and other licenses. How will you fund that without relevant qualifications needed to get certain jobs? Life is NOT easy, stop expecting to afford this that and whatever at the age of 18. Your life has barely begun yet fgs.

    Lol at you, you mean. Everyone fails at something, including you. You fail at being a half decent human being. I've already talked about doing pre access and access to get qualifications including GCSEs but most uni students think they are better than me which they are not because if you or any of you dealt with my mental health issues then you wouldn't last 5 minutes. I' far from stupid hun.

    And how do you know that according to you everyone who disagrees with you is "less than a half decent human being" good logic right there it will get you far in life!

    I've already talked about doing pre access and access to get qualifications including GCSEs
    Good for you, I hope that you get GCSE passes in English, and Maths!

    but most uni students think they are better than me which they are not because if you or any of you dealt with my mental health issues then you wouldn't last 5 minutes. I' far from stupid hun.
    How do you know what "most uni students" think of you there are 2.32 million students studying at higher education level in the UK http://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/fact...tion-data.aspx do you know all of those University students? I dont think so take your generalisations and biggortry else ware and focus on passing your GCSE exams rather then trying to bring other people down because they are better than you!
