There is nothing weird or wrong with doing a masters at 24. I completed my masters last year and only about a fith of the class were fresh out of their bachelors. Most had been working for a few years, most people were closer to 30 than they were to 20.

I was in a different field from you but I don't think I'm unique in my experience.

It is completely normal to start a master's degree at the age of 24. Many students choose to take a break after completing their bachelor's degree to gain work experience or explore other interests before pursuing a higher degree. Additionally, some individuals may have personal or financial obligations that require them to delay their education. It is important to make decisions based on your individual circumstances and goals, rather than comparing yourself to others. As long as you are committed to your studies and have a strong passion for your field, starting a master's degree at 24 is a perfectly valid choice. Your previous degree and any work experience you may have will also be valuable assets in your graduate studies.
