    I am 21 and I'm going back to college to do higher btec science so I can do the course I want at uni, but I'm really nervous about a lot of things. The college teacher said to me 'are you going to be fine that the class will be full of 16 year olds?' Which made me feel a bit small. & also the fact that I will end up at uni around 23 and won't finish until I'm 26 and I feel like il be doing what I want but then I won't be as young as I could of been if I done this all earlier has anyone else had to go through this? Is it easy? Am I just being a drama queen lol I don't even know but I just feel really funny about it and I don't want to quit either which I'm scared I'm going to:/
