See if your sixth form offers btec photography or media. I know my sixth form college does. What subjects were you doing and are you struggling in them?

I left 6th form in December, and found an apprenticeship as a teaching assistant.
However I am finding it monotonous and I miss learning new things every day- for this reason I am considering returning.
My advice is unless you find something you are SURE you want to do for the rest of your life, stick at 6th form

What grades are you getting? If you're failing all 3 then you should consider doing something else like a btec or an apprenticeship. If you are struggling in one of them (I was and it made me ill and my sixth form didn't let me drop it so I left altogether, I know it's drastic but that's me) then I would say try getting extra help from your teacher or see if you can drop it after this year if you completely fail and pick up AS photography. People usually do crap in the first year anyway.

I left sixth form with no plan, I am just at home suffering from illness. I was not planning to drop out. I would say unless you have a plan on what you want to do, persevere and stick at it. It's only one more year and apparently A2 is very short. It's only from september-march and then April you are just revising and may is study leave (if your sixth form offers it) then your exams are in June. It will be over before you know it. It may also open more doors in the future if you ever decide you want to go to university.

Have a look around other local colleges to see what courses they offer. There’s a few extended diploma btecs in creative media that might suit you. They’re 2 year courses to get the full qualification but they’re excellent preparation for creative degrees or work. And because they’re quite broad based qualifications you get the chance to try out different things to find out what suits you best.
