Why I left sixth form altogether Watch
Did really well when I wasn’t ill, but I let one thing that one of my subject teachers said get to me at the time, and then I got sick (migraine causing memory loss) and began affecting concentration and memory and started really struggling in all subjects as a result. I was an A grade student but now I can’t manage an E. I lost part of my memory for good, due to the severity of the pain. Anyone else been forced out like this?
I'm severely anaemic and the first thing my senior tutor suggested to me was to drop out of year 12 and start again next year. I strongly told her I was 100 per cent against that. Powering through even though there are bumps in the road. My attendance and grades have gotten better. It definitely felt like they were trying to force me out for "my best interests". I completely feel for you, power through it and prove them wrong!! Changing your mindset is essential, use that frustration of them wanting you out to drive you to do better and prove them that forcing you out wasn't the smartest idea. Because on a real note, if you don't persevere it's going to just spiral out of control.
