Well it's not too late no. First you need to make sure you have 5 A*-C including maths and English, could also do psychology GCSE for insight, it's useful for a levels. use those to get into college and study psychology and two other subjects. I'm in my first year of college and we have people in their 20s learning the course, each with their own story why.

No that's not the case the easiest thing to do is an access course. There's actually a lot for you to consider and it's mostly about what you want to do with the degree and what you think the course will be like.

So what do you want to take the course for?

What do you want to do as a job after?

Ok but as what? It really matters as it affects what training route you go down
