Hi all, searched but couldn't find anything on this, so here goes... Basically, I'm hoping to join the Navy as soon as possible, and factoring in the wait list for what I want to do [ET(WE)], plus the time taken for the selection process [I've got a careers presentation on Wednesday to get the ball rolling], I think I've got about a year. Currently at college, I'm doing a BTEC in Music Performance [irrelevant waste of time, I know, last time I let anyone pressure me into anything], of which I still have one year to complete, which fits in nicely with the rough amount of time I think it will take before I can go to Raleigh. But, the thing is...I really don't enjoy my course. I've been doing it for a year, and feel that it is irrelevant to my life and future career, and I really don't like the attitudes and people on the course, and the way they choose to live their lives. I want nothing to do with a group of drug-addled wasters, in short. So I was considering leaving at the end of this year, and taking two A-Levels [probably Maths and English] from home until I joined up, which would be more relevant to my career. My question is, what would look better/worse on my application? On the one hand, there's the fact that I didn't have the commitment to stick out college all the way; on the other hand, there's the two A-Levels of much more relevance and academic use if I leave, plus the added bonus of proving that I am self-motivated enough to study at home alone. What do you all think would stand me in better stead for my application and career? Of course, Iâ€™ll be asking my careers advisor when I go in on Wednesday, I was just hoping for some opinions from you learned members! Thanks all!
