Mature study and retraining
When to give up something

Very very long story short, I moved house to a completely new area with the intention of retraining . The house move has been a complete disaster which I posted about on another thread, and I am going to have to move again.
I have been turning up at the college course and doing complete rubbish because I just can’t concentrate on anything and the situation is made worse because I don’t have the space to do any extra/catchup work at home. I can see other people succeeding and having new opportunities and I feel like I am going nowhere. At what point do you decide when it is time to “call it a day”?

Hello OP, sorry about your struggles. You might get more responses on the Mature Study board. This one is used by academic staff.
(Just report your message and ask to be moved)

I’m sorry you’ve had no further responses, @Zapzep.
Could you say a bit more about what sort of course it is? How important to you right now? What stage you’re at? Whether you have any support at home? How soon you expect to move house?
Also, crucially, have you spoken to Student Services (or whatever the support department is called there) about your current difficulties?
