    i'm doing the new a levels which means i don't get AS grades anymore and have to complete the 2 yr course to get a grade. but i don't know if i want to do it anymore. i don't want to go to uni bcs costs and it doesn't apeal and i don't even want to take my subjects to uni either. i only took history bcs i love history, media becuase it was the only arty subject free and it'll be interesting, and politics bcs art was full. i honestly don't know what to do and it doesn't help that i've always had poor mental health either. i think it's too late to enroll in a college (plus my local college isn't great) and i don't know how to get an apprenticeship bcs it was never offered to me (it was almost expected of me to go to 6th form). i'm sick of education and i just want a break to write stories and make art which i love and it's the passion i want to follow. please help

    I would talk to your head of year before making any official decisions, they could help you with the subjects you have chosen.
    You can look for apprenticeships and see if they are something you are interested in;

    Or if your passionate about art, outside of school work on a portfolio and then once you have finished A-levels you could go on to study writing or art at uni and become really experience in a subject your passionate about!
