Netherlands NL_CS_TOP_1 
I'm currently in havo 5 my marks are really good and exams have been pretty easy so far. Is the university a lot better than HBO because then might go to VWO 5. Only problem is that I will be 2 years older than my classmates. Pls help

Do it, it's a big difference. Nobody cares if you're 2 years older man.

If being 2 years older is the only problem go vwo. But you can go to a university after having passed your first year at HBO with good grades, am I wrong?
2018-05-22 10:17
So, you might miss 1 year only

You can, but then it really depends on what bachelor you did and want to do. And sometimes you even need to get extra certificates of VWO level. If you have a bad year, you're screwed. If you have a bad year of VWO you can still manage most of the time.

Good point but, HBO is super easy first year.

its an honor to have such title. I want to thank my mom, dad, brother. Most of all i want to thank the kids in my basement, i couldnt have done it without them <3

I've done VWO, but on HBO now. Uni is just theory and research which didn't fit me at all (dropped out), but it might suit you. HBO ICT has enough job offers anyway

HBO = easier version of Bcs, instead of 3 years you spend 4 years for your degree. VWO the highest level of highschool. ICT = ict.. (information and communication technology)

Being 2 years older than your classmates won't be such a problem. If you want to challenge yourself and explore your capabilities: do vwo --> university. If you can't make it to 6vwo, or you have to try exceptionally hard, you can always decide to quit and go to HBO. Also as stated here above: there are possibilities to go from your 1st year of HBO to an university, but that requires additional certificates (English, math (if engineering study)) which you can overcome now by doing VWO and by adapting your learning style at VWO.

You know you need to have followed an extra course to be able to go to VWO? (at least in my school)

I went from havo to HBO to a master in university. in total this takes 1 year longer than going to university directly.. however, VWO also takes 1 year longer than HAVO.. so in the end you lose the same amount of time. + HBO was the best student time of my life, on university u have so much less time to do enjoyable stuff.

I see you want to do something with economics. From my perspective it was 100% worth going to Erasmus (I study IBEB), because it's really challenging and a big career booster. Otherwise, like a lot of people above have mentioned, a lot of jobs don't even require university education so HBO could be better. The whole being older than your classmates thing is not really important, there are lots of older people in my class in university and have been in high school too. Good luck with making the decision.

if you think you'd enjoy more academic/theoretical education, you should go for it. but don't feel obliged to try to go to uni if you like practical education more
