Considering going back to college to do my A levels, am I too old? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi! so i'm 19 and completed my AS levels and then dropped out as I hated school, I got an A in drama , B in media and U in sociology. I've worked full time for 2 years but decided I really want to go back and finish my education so I can go to uni and study what I actually want to now! My college doesn't offer drama but it does offer media, so therefore I can complete my media A level in one year but then would have to take on two new a levels (which im fine with) so althogether my college education will take 2 years.. The one thing holding me back is that i'm 19 and worried I won't fit in with all the 16 year olds only starting their A levels. Should I follow a different study route or is 19 still okay to go back and start over?
