I just completed my a levels this year and auditioned for drama schools. I got rejected from the most prestigious ones but got an offer on a not so good and not best drama school. My parents now want me to quit performing arts becuase I got rejected from top drama schools as they think becuase of that I am not good enough and worthy of a performing arts career and have banned me from it. But I have decided not to listen to my parents and not give up on my dream. I decided to audition again next year. But my parents want me to either do a different course at uni or do an apprenticeship in another career. My plan was to do an apprenticeship or full time job for this year whilst working on drama school auditions and getting in go drama school for 2021 entry. But I haven't been successful in getting one. I am doing performing arts as a career without my parents knowing knowing. My parents don't want me to just not do anything so if I don't get an job or apprenticeship, then I have go to uni for a different course. Then I would still prepare for drama school 2021 entry auditions whilst at uni then drop out after getting into drama school for 2021 entry, but then my parents will find out and I have one year of wasted money and student loan debt. I am very confused should I go to uni or apprenticeship/job. I don't know how I will follow my dream to go to a top drama school like rada and gsa.

Always listen to your parents except this one time. It’s very important you do what you enjoy. It’s your life. Don’t waste time and money doing a degree you won’t enjoy. Just because higher unis turned you down doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have gone to uni. It’s an experience. Many people that didn’t go to the uni they wanted ended up loving the time they were at another uni and possibly had a better time than would have at the uni they originally wanted. If any uni has accepted you my advice take it. A degree is a degree no matter where you study. Remember only do what’s makes you happy you won’t regret it
