      It depends really on what part of what I do interests you!
      A lot of people who want to work in science do go to go to university as having a degree is usually important for a lot of science jobs. However, if being in the lab interests you now there are many more opportunities to get a qualification through apprenticeships where you work some of the week and then study alongside it. Its definitely worth looking online for these kind of schemes, or looking for what kind of job you think you would like and working backwards from there. 🙂
