So I am a 17 years old girl from Slovak Republic. Central Europe, or Eastern. I do not really know, classifications differ. Forgive me for my grammar and spelling (I use UK spelling because that is what I have learned in school.) I am one year away from "maturita", aka exams in my country that will finish my high school education. I visit gymnasium, which is like a general school here? It prepares for further study on university, and does not specialize. But... well. The education in my country is terrible and I hardly know anything about actual science. Especially Maths and Physics. I did not have a decent lesson of Physics in what? 2 years? Our current teacher enjoys talking about morality, football and women who do not belong in science too much. And that is why I joined this forum! Because I like knowledge and I like science, but I have no idea where to start my self-education. I really want to study genetics and molecular cytology. Biochemistry.
