I'm 25 and i'm going to uni for the first time in September! I'm so pleased i did'nt go straight from school as i would have done something that i would have regretted. I went to college last year to do an access course to get into uni which consisted of english, maths and biology. I have never found any of these subjects at all interesting and my plan was to go into primary school teaching. After 2 lessons in the biology class i absolutely loved it and am going to uni to do a biology degree. My plan is to do that then do a PGCE to enable me to become a biology teacher. Like i say, if i'd gone straight to uni from school i'd have done a primary ed degree and would never of found out my love for biology. I'd honestly say wait whether its 1, 2, 3 or whatever many years until you find something your passionate about. You'll learn a lot more if its a subject you love and will do much better in it. Don't feel pressurised into just going to uni now for the sake of it.
