I’m currently in year 11 and doing my gsces in may, my options are either study at 6th form or do an apprenticeship at this marketing agency. I’m interested in a career in graphic design which is what the apprenticeship can offer me, but my mums absolutely adamant on me doing my a levels. I understand that it’s extra qualifications but I just think for me it would be a waste of time, plus I really don’t enjoy school at all. I’m just very unsure as to what would be best for me.

Hi @ajk16

Understandably your mum is going to be concerned about what option you choose after finishing your GCSEs - I'm sure she just wants the best for you.

If I were you, I would choose what is best going to help you work in the industry you want to - whether that is this apprenticeship or a levels.

Explain to your mum why you would rather do the apprenticeship over A levels, sit down with her and look through the options available to you and try and come to a compromise? Look at the benefits and drawbacks of each route and weigh up what's going to be best for you.

I hope this helps, let me know how you get on!
