    Hi Cass,

    Welcome to the boards!

    Thanks for creating this thread and for posting about what's going on for you. You've done a really positive thing by looking for some help and advice. You were saying that you're really struggling as you've been home schooled by your mum since the age of 6 and that you're worried that you don't have any GCSE's or qualifications. Sounds like a difficult situation to be in, but you're doing really well to look for some help. What kind of advice and help are you looking for can we ask? You were saying that you want to study music and become a singer hopefully one day. Thanks for sharing this with us, have you been able to speak to anyone else about this?

    We have a section of articles here at The Mix called Work & Study that has lots of articles that might be useful for you here: http://www.thesite.org/work-and-study

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Just wanted to let you know that I moved your thread to the Work and Volunteering section of the discussion boards as you might get more responses. :)

    Hey Cassandra, I'm wondering whether there is a music school near you where you could possibly speak to someone about how you could go about following your dream? I know that at the moment you have no formal qualifications, but it may be you need to consider formalising your learning at home to access the fields you're interested in.

    For music you may be able to audition and work your way up from there?
