Good luck to you! I'm 49 and will be starting a Foundation year for Engineering this September... and I'm 49. Been a taxi driver for the last 13 years and I cannot face doing that for another 20 years. I dunno which uni yet though as I have 1 unconditional offer already but I'm waiting on one more which is my 1st choice.
I did my GCSE maths last year at night school. I was the 2nd oldest on that course but I got on with everyone even though most were well younger than me. Only issue (very minor at that) was when I made it public knowledge I was for the leaving the EU in the referendum. That "raised eyebrows" shall we say and it's taught me to keep my political views to myself when at uni. I don't want the safe space, no platforming brigade to make my life a misery.
