My name is Simon and I'm 22 years old. I dropped out of high school due to various personal problems I've had in the past. It's been a long time since I've been to school and I want some advice on where do I begin to get started, I will be studying full time.
I want to ask, should I bother going back to where I left (getting high school diploma/GED) or look into Open University because it doesn't have any Admission requirements?
I really want to go to a University (physically) because I get to experience what it's really like. The problem is that I've wasted so many years already and I'm scared if I decide to go for the High school diploma/GED route, when I finish, I won't meet the requirements for the program I want to study, that would completely destroy me and make me feel hopeless.
TL;DR: Is it worth it to potentially use a year to get my High school diploma/GED then apply for a University or just go for the Open University and start studying something without having to waste anymore time?
I want to hear your opinion on what you think of my current situation. Thank you for your time.
