    Im getting to the stage where im preparing to look for open days and get in to the UCAS mood.

    My aimis to do teacher training, but in order to do that, I must finish a bqchelor. So, is it worth me going in year 13 to an open day where I wanna do teacher training or wait until ive been in uni for a few years?

    It depends what you'll be sacrificing in order to attend the open day. Do you have to miss a day at school? If so, is it something you can easily catch up, or is it an important talk/test/similar? Can you afford to go, or are train fares going to be huge? Will you get back so late you'll be tired and need the next day off to recover?

    There's no real reason not to go, but it depends if your personal circumstances would make it unwise. Only you can decide that. However, it would be useful in finding out about the teacher training course, and help you to decide that's really what you want to do.
