Hello jassi1. Sorry to hear about your husband, anyway you a tough girl and I know you can face the world with courage and determination in your heart. As to me, age doesn't matter when it comes to studying. Don't ever care about how old you are. If you want to continue studying, just go ahead and do it. If I were you I would go for it. You don't have to take a full time course. You can always take the easiest way which is long distance learning. You register in the nearest university from your home so that it would be easy for you to commute. Then see whether they have weekend classes so it won't interfere with your job and you would not have to attend classes after you finish your work during week days because this will be very tiring. When you go for your classes, you can discuss with your lecturer to allow your kid to come along if you do not have anyone to take care of him/her. During your classes pay attention to everything the lecturer said so you don't have to struggle too much to study at home. Take a longer duration to complete your degree because if you take too many subject in one semester you would be too tired and may fail in the end. It is better to take less subjects and stretch the semester. I pray to God, so that you would be able to take your BA again and graduate. Good luck.

hai, age is not a matter at all.don't feel for your past arrears.have an attitude that you can win.most of the people who have fallen in school or college days have come up to a high position.you will be paid for your knowledge and not according to your age.dont worry by thinking about it.have faith in god and you will lead your life.

No. Learning is a continuous process. Your thirst for knowledge is what matters, it's for your own professional/personal growth. ^__^

I guess it does. Biologically, the body deteriorates as we age. But for me I think it's like this.. If you're 30 in still are in school: - If you have a life like some single dude, not married, no distractions in studies in all, I think you would be fine in school. Anything that won't ruin your concentration. - If you're 30 and married and all.. And have all those distractions and commitments other than study, good luck I think. If you're healthy and determined, you'll be okay. If not, well. 0.o
