I discussed this on here a while ago, but eventually was talked out of leaving by my father. Now, I'm nearly at the end of the recruitment process, with just the PJFT to go - today, however, I decided to leave my college course. I started a BTEC National Diploma in Music Performance last year, did one academic year [ending in July this year] and, to be honest, I didn't enjoy it. There were times when I hated it. I strongly considered leaving. However, I was persuaded to return this year, which I duly did, and for the past 3 weeks I've been so incredibly unhappy that today I wrote to my tutors and said, in no uncertain times, that I wish to withdraw immediately. Basically, the drugs culture amongst the people of that course, and the fact that we've been back for 3 weeks and have done no work, has finished me off - I can't bear the fact that I'm sitting around all day, on a course that I hate, which has no relevance to my chosen career [ET(WE)], so I left in favour of finishing my Maths A-Level Iâ€™m doing as a correspondence course, and working 2 different jobs. Of course, now I'm having the "what if this ruins my application" panic. How badly is this going to reflect on me at this late stage? Will it show them that I'm too weak of mind to stick out a course, so I'm not right for the Navy [not true, in my opinion]? Have I blown it? There is still a chance that I can get back onto the course and get the [useless] qualification - but I hate that thought so much, I'll only take the road if I absolutely have to. Anyone got any advice? Thanks all.
