With regards staying on the course or not - seriously ask yourself why you might be getting thrown off it.|
If it is the standard of your images or your attitude then I'd do my level best to improve them so you get kept on the course. It'll be a good lesson for the working world.
As for working as a photog - its part about the images you take (whatever mode) and part about the business. You need to learn how to get work, contacts, set up a business, cashflow, contracts and lots of other stuff if you want to work for yourself. Getting a job with a studio might be a way to learn this or look at business link web pages - loads of advice.
But that's all far down the line. It might be hard but be honest with yourself about what is going wrong with your course. If you think academics can be unfair wait until you run up against clients.
PS I do weddings, portraiture and events. But not full time.
