Agree about studying for fun!!! where can I sign up?????
Wish I had done some other subjects but were limited to 3 in the dark ages ... and no giving anything up!
Also I wonder those who did a broad sweep of subjects (science and humanties) may have more chance to change track in the future - !
I am all for that. I have changed track 3 times now...from linguist to teacher, teacher to something else, and now becoming a social scientist. It is intoxicating to have the opportunity to learn again when you are older; I am starting to think education is wasted on the young. I did a mix of arts and sciences at A level, but it was all so much less pressured in those days I think.
If you are serious about learning something new Herman, go for it. I can thoroughly recommend it: you bring a different perspective with age and experience, and once you get over the idea that all the bright young things must know so much more because they are so confident, it is actually great fun to become the wise old lady they confide in because they trust you and think you can help them.
Sorry, OT, but broadly there, I think.
