I don't know about unschooling it has zero appeal for me. Is it actually allowed?

I can't imagine multivariant calculus or matrices and vectors coming up in a conversation and then triggering a desire in a teen to find out more on their own volition.
Which gets back to something I touched on earlier. I don't understand how unschooled children can access tertiary education without a massive catchup program. Yes there are tertiary bridging programs, but are they a substitute for prerequisite subjects that a lot of degrees require especially in the STEM degrees. I can't imagine an unschooled child would have the requisite chemistry, physics and maths skills to tackle a degree in engineering for example.

I also view education through the prism of my age. Being in my mid 40s I have a lot of friends who retrained in completely different fields in their late 30s and early 40s. My father studied languages when he was in his 40s and now has degrees in French German and Russian.
We hear so often that people don't know what they want to do with their lives and fall in to careers because they didn't know what else to do. I did law because I didn't want to do medicine. Simple as that. Once I became a lawyer I hated it. I've had periods where I like it and at the moment I love my job but how does a 15 year old know what they want to be?
