Well yes. 2nd degree started at 46, masters at 48. I may do another degree at 70, like my dad is doing, 50 years after doing his first one.

Absolutely. I once met someone who was doing a PhD in their late 70s.

yes, the age of the internet allows for education to be a lot more accessible with online courses for just about any type of qualification (GCSEs, A-Levels, open uni degrees) and even despite the internet you can study at any age as long as you pay once you’re 18+, my mum always reminds me education will always be available to me because I’m often stressing out about subject choices and such.

What good is online courses? I don’t learn like that, I learn in the classroom.

You asked if education was always accessible, I answered your question. Don't get moody because I gave you an answer.

Most courses have a heavy aspect of learning outside of the classroom nowadays anyway so you're going to have to get over yourself

Because you literally said “study” you didn’t specify you’re talking about your a-levels that you dropped out of and now think you can never do anything.
Plenty of people have given you plenty of options and advice. You just never accept any of it.
The one thing you want to do-which is to go back in time and never dropping out in the first place-you can’t do.

Restart A-Levels as private candidate. Access to HE course. Foundation year.

Lots of options which I'm sure you've heard before.

You'll usually need to have taken a level 3 qual within around 5 years of the uni course start date, (depending on the unis requirements).

You’ve literally posted and been told this about 100 times.
If you choose not to listen then that’s on you.
