I don't regret it, as a High school cert really doesn't mean as much anymore. lack of a challenge was the reasoning for dropping out.

currently working in a school. so that proves how much the education system cares about offical education :P

 

Well, an NTCET gives you options, like university. Even if you don't want to go now, it's there. Options are important. You don't need an NTCET to tell teachers to reboot their laptop or plug the VGA cable in properly, so yeah.... High school certifications are very important in Australia now.

I've already done a TEP course so i got my university acceptance score. So the UNI pathway is open to me. was happy when i found out I could do the course as a Mature Aged student, mum had to wait till she was 25 before she started her degree due to failing year 12.

Personally I see more Validity in specialised education in a field over a general certificate that really isn't an effort to achieve.

The options the NTCET give you, are still there if you do things right. something most people won't realise. right now i'm getting some money behind myself before I start doing a Uni Degree. 

Following the traditional system of going through school and university in one go works for most, But seeing as the only person in my family who did that went into nursing and failed, and others failed/dropped out or took a 5 year gap then went to university as an adult have succeeded.

tl;dr

The traditional system works for most people. but for some like me we find it easier to tailor our pathway and reach the same levels of education.

Good to know you have a university pathway. However, whether or not you fail a course is up to you, not anyone else. Also, fee help is a thing. It's not like you have to pay up front for uni.

any1 in the US with a Company that needs a Electromechanical engineer, I want a H1B sponsor!  :)

I am only making 1k US$ a month as a junior project manager (yep, the salary in third work countries is shitty), four times less of what my cousin makes in Texas (IT job)!!!


Looking around,

Personally do not consider Autism as a learning disability.

Source: I gots it.

Then again i dropped out of school in year 12 cause i didn't consider the education system to be effective enough and i wasn't learning anything :P

 

Not everyone with autism has learning disability.

But i have it.

I'm a "coach" for Team Beachbody, basically I help people choose what fitness program (stuff like P90X, Insanity, Les Mills, etc) they should try and help them with any health/fitness goals they may have. It's an extremely rewarding job, it will do until I am done with my schooling or may even continue well after that.
