    I'm currently 24 and looking to go back to school to do a-levels, to eventually get a place on a neuroscience course at uni. I had a bit of a rough time as a kid, and needed a fair bit of time to get my head straight, which I think i'm finally past!

    Curious to see if there anyone else on here who has been/is going/is about to go down the same route? Anything I should be aware of/prepared for? How terrible is it studying alongside a bunch of teenagers? Similarly, to any traditional students, how weird would you find it to have someone in their mid-twenties studying alongside you?!

    Hopeful I'll get to chat to more people on this weird little path
