I have GCSEs passed all my subjects got 2 A’s 3 B’s and 3 C’s

I didn’t concentrate well during college and ended up getting kicked out.
I later did a 1 year access course in health science and got distinctions and merits, I wasn’t able to go university due to family issues.

I am now 20 and I don’t know what to do, people in my age group will now be going on to third year university and I haven’t done nothing in life im even struggling to get a part time job.

Please can someone help me and guide me on what I should do please help.

Hi, sorry to hear your feeling a bit stuck at the minute, I think as you are kind of in a rut, take some time to figure out exactly what you want to do as a career and where you see yourself in 5 years time.. what your priorities are in life and what makes you the happiest. Then when you have a rough idea of the answers to the above, look into what exactly you would need to do those things, including grades, money, degree, experience etc and then break those down and figure out what you want to do from there..

Even at 20 you still have plenty of time to figure everything out, im 26 and just finished a foundation year at university, before that I did loads of different jobs until I figured out exactly what I'm passionate about! Just take your time, and don't compare yourself to other people, some people will have their ideal career at 19 others 59 so don't worry to much about them and concentrate on what you want to do! I wish you the best!

Life is not a race. Only go to university when you know what you want to do in life.

Hey. I didn't finish my GCSEs until I was 18 and I won't be starting university until I'm almost 21. I used to worry a lot about being behind everyone else my age but in the end it makes no difference. You just need to focus on yourself. At the age of 20, you still have your whole life ahead of you. Jobs are difficult to come by at the moment due to the pandemic but lots of businesses are beginning to reopen every day. As for your studies, if you're still having family troubles then the Open University is always an option. You could transfer your OU credits to another university once your situation calms down. Otherwise, UCAS is open for 2021 entry and I'd encourage you to apply if you're able.
