I quit yr12 after 3 days bc i hated it so much and then the next September started a lvl3 course in illustration. It was the best decision I ever made. At first I was scared I would be the oldest but there were quite a few the same age and even someone whos 26, but no one treats her differently. It was definitely scary at first but if it's a course you love then it will all work out.

You need to speak to your school / college asap to see if they would even allow you to retake Year 12 - they are totally entitled to say no and you cannot just assume they would say yes. The same would apply if you tried to switch to another school / college - they do not have to automatically accept you.

I already asked them they said it’s okay
