Moving from Scotland to England?

In Scotland, I’m in fifth year, meaning that I’ve only got one more year then I’m off to university. I’m doing my highers which is 4 highers and 1 national 5. In England the school system is different as you have to either go sixth form or college after year 11. However, I don’t want to spend another year in school. What should I do?

    Without A-levels or vocational/occupational training beyond GCSEs (old O-levels), you have nothing to offer employers. So what do you think you're going to do with yourself without proper education & training when there's a worldwide labor glut of a billion adults already, and another billion on-track to enter the world's workforces within the decade? You like the idea of being a bum, unable to support yourself, stuck in a boring & nasty dead-end job if you can even get that? Note burger-flippers are already obsolete, being replaced by computer-controlled robotic systems which takes the order, cooks the burgers to customer specifications & delivers it!

    Moving to England to get out of school is a future-killer.

    If the rest of your family has already moved to England, you will not qualify for the tax-payer funded tuition in Scotland.  Scottish undergraduate degrees take 4 years and English/Welsh degrees 3 years .  As, either way, you will be paying tuition, attending an English or Welsh university means one extra year of tax-payer funded schooling and one fewer year of student loans.   What is not to like?

    Who is going to pay for your accommodation, food, travel?  If you are at school in England you will have to pay for tuition in a Scottish Uni, if you stay there then it is free.

    I can’t stay in Scotland, my whole family is already in England.
