Currently I go to a school, a vocational training school (Berufsschule) and I've done a lot of classes of just German and I can join Abitur/Fachabitur the next year or after the coming summer. The thing is I don't wanna do Abitur since it's 3 years and I'm 16 so my parents are worried I will be too late for university (we don't have good financial conditions) but I was thinking positively to do a Fachabitur and get into a university the thing is I heard it doesn't work all over Europe or Schengen so I'm worried I won't be able to get into universities I want. Whereas the third and most worst option is to go to India on November and give my final exams for High school Diploma (I can do that since I'm a citizen and we can claim homeschooling) but the thing is I never completed grade 11th last year since I had a lot going on family & interpersonal problems and within 4 or less than 4 months of notice, I need to give my final exams I would mess them up, so much to cover up plus I won't be able to score that good.

So what's your advice on my situation.

Dear @Rit,

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us.

I understand very well that the questions in your mind can be puzzling and overwhelming for the time being. However, there are counselling offices which are specialised in supporting young people on exactly these kind of issues (free of charge and confidential). They are called "Youth Migration Services (JMD)" and I highly recommend you to get in touch with them. Here you can find out about such a service near you.

It is a bit difficult to give tailored advice without knowing your individual situation well. I just wanted to comment that you are still very young and in a normal age for making the "Abitur". There are also options to get financial support if you want to study. Handbook Germany explain about the "Bafög" well.

I hope this helps and don't hesitate to get back to us with further questions.

All the best,
