Right this is very confusing!

I finished school in June and i decided i wanted to go to college cos i hated school. So after 3 months off i went to college... the atmosphere was horrible and after one day i decided that i wasnt going back. As i wanted qualifications i then decided to apply to my 6th form. I hated school and well it was just the same so after 2 days there i quit.

That was like 2 months ago and im still unemployed. I decided that i'd work full time for like forever but now im kinda backtracking again.

I'd quite like to work this year full time then go to college next september and maybe after that go to university. But im not sure if i can actually stick it. Im worried that i'll do the same thing again and mess everything up. I think a big bit of it is that im still confused about what i want to do later in life.

This isnt really a problem but hey ho!
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    I wouldnt worry, i dont think youre the only one who's unsure of what they want to do.

    Why dont you book an appointment with your local careers centre? They can help you sort things and tell you your options

    would you enjoy it any more if you did different subjects? Maybe something that interested you more wouldn't be so bad? You don't have to do A Levels, I did a National Diploma (aquivalent to 3 A levels) and still got into Uni.

    Your best bet would be to go and speak to a careers advisor and work out all your options. If you're not sure what you want to do you could take the year to decide or choose general subjects that should get you to uni. Your A level choices will not set your life in stone, there are always ways to change it's course. While you are deciding you could always do one A level as an evening class... plus you don't have to do A levels, you could pick a more vocational course instead.
