    I failed all of my GCSEs getting mostly Us, however I done entry level 3 English and maths and now doing level 1 in English and maths but I'm concerned I'm still not able to get a decent job, I want a career as an animal care worker, working in rescue centres and being hands on with those animals as well as feeding and things like that, I have entry level 3 animal care, I've volunteered in a few animal places, I might get an apprenticeship after college but I can't stop worrying, I want to do well but my mental health held me back, it's the reason I keep failing, I enjoy college now though and can see myself passing exams but without GCSEs am I still only going to be able to get minimum wage shop jobs? I can't do that my while life. It also makes me depressed that I can't afford a car. Btw I'm also a dog walker and 18.
