Not sure whether to go straight in to work or go to uni because if I work full time I’ll be earning money to help out my parents but if I go to uni it could perhaps lead to a better career. Or should I go for an apprenticeship

If you're a low income household, you will likely qualify for a lot of financial help from loans and the uni. It could be that this allows you to send some money to family; plus a part time job will help top up funds?

True I just don’t want to give up my education
And the only reason I work hard is so that I can give my mum everything I can once I am successful but she doesn’t understand that
True but my mums planning on divorcing my dad so it would be hard to pay or the mortgage and that would mean my mum would have to work again but she’s not well enough to so I think I’d have to

Is there option like part time study or to study locally?

Have you spoken to a teacher about this too? May sound odd but perhaps they may be able to help advise.

Full time work then uni?

I think you'll find most of your managers at ful time work have degrees in something but if you want to just find out how they apply that into work, then I wouldn't stop you. If you want to goto university (at a young age doesn't make a difference in a few cases, uni aimmed at all ages groups) then I can't really stop you. I went to uni whenever I had that chance. So i can't really answer. I thought I wouldn't get a job if I hadn't got to uni. I thought no one will like me at work to be honest and I would get sacked quickly. no joke. so I went to uni.

You're always going to have famliy problems, so don't let them get to you. Do seek help and maybe get that full time job if you think those issues are getting in the way of the education. my family were supportive of me going to uni, so I suppose I had that good.

At the moment, for alevels I’m doing biology chemistry and philosophy
And I’m thinking of going down the science route
But my mums not well enough to work and my dads just useless
And my mum was saying how I’d have to give up my education to do full time work to support the family
But I don’t want to and it’s not fair how I have to ruin my life because of my useless dad so it might mean I won’t go to uni but I feel like if I want to go down the science route I need to go to uni
why don't part-time work and go uni? but other than that your parents seem selfish imo

Don’t be ridiculous, you don’t know their situation, it may well be completely justified.

No. Speak good about your parents or don't speak about them at all.

Nah. Some parents are c*nts and deserve to be called out. They aren't some mystical being above criticism
