In this current climate, is this a good idea?
I'm currently fed up of doing my A-levels. I'm finding them extremely hard and it's getting to the point where I'm so stressed that I cry everyday. I have passed all of my GCSEs- 14 in total. I am seriously considering taking up an apprenticeship because that way I will get qualifications as well as vital real life experience in a certain area. I'm very focused on going into business administration or retail where I would aim to work my way up. I recently came across an apprenticeship for an estate agents... but would this be wise to apply for considering that the Country is currently in a recession and not many people are going to be buying properties? What do you think about my overall outlook? and please could you give me your views on the question I asked above. Many thanks.

Finish your A-levels. Here in the states, real estate agents are often a second/hobby career -- a GED isn't even required. You could easily get a real estate license after you're done with school. Why not work an internship that provides practical experience in a more stable field?
