    You can do lots of things in life without having a degree. You don't need a degree to be successful. My half-brother is 27 and he's now a successful accountant earning more than my dad is earning and he didn't go to university. Just take a step back, and look at your career options without a degree.

    don't make the mistake of ignoring that sinking feeling like your going on the wrong course-however don't be put off if you think you wont have time for work.-you can easily get a part-time job and your studies will remain unaffected.
    uni isn't something to rush into though, if youre not feeling it-decline the offer, take a year out and work a job see how you feel, you can always apply next year.
