Hello there, I am currently 14 and 1 and a half weeks away from starting highschool and over my summer break I've developed a strong fascination in theoretical physics, especially in the brane theory(which involves the notion that there are actually 11 dimensions of space and one of time) and I would really like to pursue a career in theoretical physics but I am clueless on where to start, I will be taking AP algebra which covers algebra 1 and 2, and geometry 1 and 2. I have been home schooled all my life so I believe this is a great opportunity to pursue my dream. I am also taking a course in pre-engineering. I wish to attend a college( I am still looking for one) and acquire a major in Astrophysics then hopefully apply to Cambridge for Theoretical Physics. Any and all advice is welcome.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
