Based on what you've said previously, it doesn't sound like you'd want to go this route.

I enjoy math I just dropped it in year ten, rather than keeping at in until year 12.

But yes it is too late for me as I have other allied health careers I would also enjoy, and that have a high rate of employment and pay well, without math and physics.

My late mother always wanted me to be a dumb menial---lifting heavy s*** and getting paid next to nothing. Apparently that's how one earns "heaven-credits" (if you have to ask, you'll never know).

That doesn't work for me... that's why I'm enrolled in construction school to get my building inspector license, so I won't have to lift s*** and I can be self-employed!!!!!! (Now THERE'S a scary thought---me doing my own thing with no boss breathing down my back.)

But even that isn't the endpoint... the $$ from being a building inspector will enable me to write and self-publish novels.
