    In 2 years, I will be graduating in geology and I'm planning to continue to a postgrad degree in a natural science program. By that time, I'm already 21y/o. Do you think I could survive postgrad study?

    People generally start postgrad study aged 21 as most degrees are 3 years long and most people begin university aged 18 And how do we know if you can survive, SERIOUSLY?

    I don't really understand what your asking - are you trying to suggest that at 21yrs old you'll suddenly be no longer able to cope with studying - if you get a good degree and accepted onto a postgrad, then surely you shouldn't have any problems handling the coursework.

    How do you expect us to know your capabilities and limitations? The only thing you've told us is your age. The obvious answer is 'some people can do it, some people can't'. Surely you don't expect us to be able to give any more specific advice, having only told us your age?
