I finished High School and didn’t do too badly in my GCSEs; B in Maths, C in Science. I didn’t particularly try though, I just wasn’t interested at the time. Eventually, as a consequence of falling into a CAD Technician’s role I completed a HNC in Construction & The Built Environment. After a while I was producing images and 3D models of proposed new builds which lead to what I’m doing now, graphics. I’m 27 and I work for myself, earning good money and I can manage my own time, pretty much picking and choosing projects. This means I have the time and finances to begin studying a subject that I’m genuinely excited by. There are a few subjects that interest me but I can’t think of a better lifetime’s pursuit than attempting to help understand the universe, even in some tiny way – making the tea and coffee if necessary! I would gladly begin right where I left off and go to college to study Physics from A-Level standard, as I wish I had when I was 16. I also think I’d have to, in no way is my level of understanding University standard, nor do I think I’d be eligible for admission. My question is, how feasible do you think this is? If I make the time and I’m genuinely interested, can anyone think of a reason why attempting to forge a career in Physics later in life may not be advisable? It may seem like a weak question but I don’t want to rush into any decision without considering the consequences first. I also don’t understand the procedural processes of higher education or what viable career prospects Physics can offer. Really I’m just after your thoughts and advice. I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers.
