I left school at 17 due to mental illness stopping me from passing my A level exams but now I am just bored at home and I don't want to start working now so is it too late for me to enrol for btec? I have no idea what career path I want to go down or if I want to go to university in the future so I guess I will need to rush into a BTEC and just go with it.

Contact your local college and ask.

You wont be able to enrol till September imo.

While you are off the try and do some careers research. That might give you direction. Once you know the course or career then its just a case of more research.

Oh and work on the MH.

Careers- See if you can get any of these books at the careers library or they will have similar for you to read. Try and get ones aimed at your age group. If you cant find then just get second hand from Amazon.

If my mental health improves theres no reason why i can't continue with A level but it may be hard at 18. Is BTEC level 3 16-18?

If you are talking in a formal setting then maybe your school will take you, bit in most cases A level courses at 18+ cease and are replaced by access courses. Most people teach themselves or use a correspondence course. BTEC may not be automatic either.
