    Im 22 and have finally decided what I want to do!! I want to go into a career in Law and want to start A level Law part time - then see what opportunities at uni I can go on from with the qualifications I will gain.

    I want to go to uni and enjoy myself, and in a way regret not doing it when i left college, but at the same time at least i have gained some good work experience knowledge from being in full time healthcare work since college.....

    Why would you not be able to enjoy yourself now?

    People at uni don't really notice age, i have loads of friends who are over 22 and they have as much fun as others. Don't worry about it.

    Not really, there's 30+ plus people who I study and hang out with.

    But going to uni just for a good time and nothing else is pointless anyway.

    Nah I met my boyfriend here (same year as me) and he is 23 now.

    He does all the stuff everyone else does, he gets drunk, plays pool, etc. etc.; why wouldn't he?

    Just doing A level law isn't considered a good subject. I'm not an expert... maybe refer to some of the past threads for help? You mention going to college i think... what did you study?

    I'm 22 and I started uni last year but really didn't like what I had chosen to do nor the university, so hopefully going to do what I want next year so I will have jst turned 23. It's not old at all, it's still young plus you want to achieve everything that you want before you start settling down so that you can be in a good job.
    If anything, last year we had a 50 something on our course . Quite often, she would come into lectures still drunk from the night before.
    Jst make sure that law is what you want to do as someone who has studied it, I found there to be a lot of reading and little room for individual thought but then there were a lot of people who enjoyed it. Can you not use the qualifications that you gained at college?
