    So basically I joined college doing level2 courses then j find out I passed a subject so I now could do level 3 subjects and it took forever to get changed. I then thought i wanted to do an apprenticehsip but then my family said stay in college after I got the apprenticeship. After settling into my new subjects i realised I did not like law and because I missed loads and because of me being lazy I'm pretty much going to fail.

    My supervisor has told me that if I fail law the college may not take me on next year because of how much UCAS points I have but how does this make sense I really don't understand that if I have all the requirements to do another subject.

    My law teacher told me the college played me and advised me to drop out of college and start fresh next year as he said If i stayed and got an F it would look really bad .

    I tried to explain this to my mum but she thinks I'm just gonna sit around the house for the rest of the year

    I thought i could just fail and then start fresh next year but they are telling me j have to get a pass and at this point in the year and because of how much j have missed I know i am going to fail and I don't know what to do because the college is acting like no other college will accept me if I fail and I don't know if they are just scaring me or not.

    Your explanation is a little confusing and you need to speak to either a student advisor at the college or if they dont have one, then a careers adviser. They can get all the details from you and then explore your options.
