Debating the path that I will take to reach Rome... watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey there,

    I am a bit of a turmoil at this stage of my life. I am on the verge of finishing college (IT) and a couple of months ago I decided that I wished to go into project management/general management. This required me to go into uni, until I saw the best chance in my life, a dream-come-true, opportunity once in a life time - an apprenticeship for project control at BAE systems! I didn't get in...and it took some toll on me. I figured that if I pass my GCSE maths at C grade, I will be able to still get onto Business and Management at Portsmouth university.

    Here's the thing...I don't know if I want to go into University. I recently got informed that the course is hard (due to maths - I am not very got at maths academically wise).

    I am applying for any apprenticeships like crazy and I don't know what to do. Either to stick to uni and then when I graduate, have a debt of £36,000 and a still slim chance to get a job..great; or if I get an apprenticeship place, stick with it?

    Anyone that was in this situation and could give me some advice? Or anyone that can help me in my decision in life as I may missed some opportunities/paths that I could take.

    Thanks guys
