Hello everyone, I guess I am considered a mature student (25). You could say I wasted my teenage years focusing on things that aren't entirely important in the long term. I've since grown up a fair bit, stable job and all but I have a deep regret for not finishing A-Levels and go to university.
So here is where you can help me, I have decent GCSEs, where do I go from here? Do I take a foundation year or do I redo my A-Levels? I'd like to do it full time, but I'd also like to get a mortgage (which requires a job) for a house. I am financially stable so that decision is up to me, I don't mind distance learning either. I can find the time to study.
TL;DR, I don't have qualifications above GCSEs, would like to study Mechanical or Structural Engineering. Do I do 2/3 A-Levels or do Foundation/Access Course. Preferably a decent brick-and-mortar university 2-3rd year. I'm based in London, but ultimately, for my future, I am willing to go anywhere. Suggestions would be appreciated. [Preferably wack this out before I'm 30.]
Hope this is has come out clear enough and hopefully not too rambly.
Thank you in advance
...and how to stay positive
