I dont know whether to go on to do the A2's or to find work in the summer! the thing is that i'm at 6th form and after we finish study leave we are back in to start our A2's. Should i start looking know just incase i dont decide to go back or not?
Also would you sugest i stay on and do the A2's?

    I'd say go back and finish ur a2's, u'll prob end up regrettin it if u dont and u'll look back and wonder what if. U got ur whole life to find work so enjoy not workin while u can, i guarantee u'll wish u were back at school as soon as u leave.

    (at least i hope thats not just me, i kinda miss it all) <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Go back and finsh your A Levels it will be worth it, I've just taken a year out between A Levels and Uni and the only job I could get was at Tesco on the checkouts so think of what jobs you will get with just GCSE's.

    Im doing my AS at the minute, and im planning on leaving and starting a caree in the police force, not only do u not need any qualifications other than one GCSE in English but you can go into just about any specialised section u want and they'll train u. not only that but they give u a knight stick and handcuffs!!
    just thought I'd give u another point of view.
    There are plenty of jobs if u look for them.
    hope thats helped you out.

    But what if you want to leave the police force later on in life and do a different job? if u dont have many qualifications you will find it hard to get a good job.

    i'd go back.

    it's only another year, and with A levels you could always change your mind later in life and go to uni.

    If you just have GCSEs you mind find yourself stuck at some point in the future...

    you should definately finish your A2's. There is no point in finishing half way through. If you start something you should always finish it. If you stay on for another year you'll get a good qualification and employers will want you more after you finish, than they would so now. You'll have a better choice of job if you wait another year and finish ur course. That's why I say, so just stay on, you'll benefit in the long run and you'll regret it if you leave half way through. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I felt exactly the same when i was at school doing A levels. I really didnt think that i would make it through to the end of school because i hated it so much! In the end i made it but only just and got some good results as well. Looking back, im pleased i stayed on because you can do so much more with extra qualifications. Im on a gap year at the moment and ironically i hate working and wish i could go back and lead the life i had in school!

    So stay on. Its such a short period of time if you lok at it (is it one year you've got left?) and if you get results your happy with you will be glad you did.

    definetly finish ur A-levels. i thought the same thing this time last year i really didnt wanna go back to school but my parents were pretty adamant and i decided "what the hell ive done one year why not" and let me tell you, my A2 year has flown in sooo fast its unreal. at the time you think it drags but it is over before you know it and ur free!
    except im not free yet cos i have the actual exams...but you might as well go back and finish them it will be worth it!
