    Would you rather have a decent set of gcse's and A levels by the time you're 24 or still be stuck in that dead end job? I know which one I would prefer.

    If you don't do it, you will always regret that you didn't do it and wonder how different your life could have been and aged 40, you would have realised that 24 is still very young.

    Defintely do this if it's what you want. I know people in the same situation as you who have gone back to education, and are so much happier (despite having to get used to studying again :tongue: )
    Once you've done your GCSEs there's always apprenticeships and BTEC courses as well, don't forget.

    You're twenty and you think it's too late to get into education?!

    My course is full of people approaching their thirties or well into their thirties, they've wanted a switch in careers so they've come to university and many of them are successful in what they do.

    My advice to you is to save up enough money to keep yourself for a year or two and to retake GCSE's and A Levels. Older applicants often try harder than a lot of A Level students and given the right attitude and determination, perhaps even outside tutoring you could manage all A's in your A Levels. A number of good colleges (in my area there's City of Bristol College) handle older applicants and often have a "fast-track" scheme for people that want to get back into education and leave with A Levels. Go to your local college and ask them what they can do for you.
