Shall I drop out of college?
Posted: 18/04/16 by Alex Richards
Hi, now before you ask I'm not looking for an easy way out. I am a music student and have just turned 17. My college course was a year long and is coming to an end. I didn't really enjoy it as much as I thought. Now I hate education. I'm a borderline dyslexic who has been bullied my whole life. I tried my very best at GCSE to get 1 A* 2 B's and 5C's. I work on weekends and I was talking to my college about how much I can't stand the workload and the expectation, the unhelpful advice and I'm lacking in motivation, they said that they dropped out of college earlier this year. I've considered it for 4 months now. Shall I finish the course I'm on now and next year drop out? I even looked at all the apprenticeships and traineeships I could do and none of them interest me or will benefit me. My parents say they just want me to be happy and I think this is the right answer. However, College don't like it. I have talked to them about it and they are trying to force me to stay there. I read somewhere online they can't force me to stay in college but I don't know if that's true or not. It's not a local college either I travel for an hour on the train just to get from my house to the college. I really need help I'm desperate! Please help!!!!
