I was a decent student at uni. Passed everything (not excelled) but I never really tried. Went to university because I had no other option like I couldn't comprehend not going.

I hated it. I consider it a waste of 4 years and probably screwed me out of about 7 years of potential.

I eventually got a crappy job in a call centre and got promoted to Tech Support. In there I got my first taste of coding and 3 years later I'm building software for Building Societies and Banks.

University will never teach you passion and that's all you really need.
