    I am currently 17 and in a sixth form school in England and I really hate all the courses I'm doing because I simply feel as if they are wasting my time and that I won't gain from them because I don't want to go to uni. I want to be. A successful entrepreneur so I feel as if I should teach my self and get a job to earn some money to invest. I'm just wondering what others think.

    What course are you doing? If it’s business it’s useful, I think you should do an apprenticeship? Ever considered...

    This site is going to be very biased to study so prepare for a lot of “stay in school” vibes...

    If you know what you want to do and how to go about getting it, I say take the risk! You can always go back to education if you want to, but you can’t go back and change regrets about not taking that risk.

    I’d advise you to stay till you have completed 6th form and then move into apprenticeship, if you want to go into that route.

    Personally, if I were you, get your A-Levels. It's only 2 years and once you've got them, you've got them. Make sure you having something that you can focus on for when you leave sixth form (so have a plan) this way you know what you want to aim for. Also, another reason why you should continue is because you may change your mind and decide that you want to do something else; I've changed my mind about 4 times. Also, even if you don't think your subjects will contribute to your future, they will show the employer that you have the skills to learn a new subject at a higher level and understanding.

    Also, seeing as you want to be an entrepreneur and want to invest, it might be worth you taking a look into Forex (the financial exchange market). You can make millions, but can also loose millions.
