Or rather, how long *did* you take. Please advise whether you had 0-3 years of university under your belt already. Where did you graduate from? I panicked last night thinking about the time it's going to take to work full-time and study part-time. Geez, I won't even *need* a degree in five years for I expect to have moved onto something else (that doesn't require a degree). It's depressing at 48 years of age to think of six more years of university studies. Of course as the old wag said, "How old will you be in six years if you don't complete your BA?" All I can say to those in their twenties and thirties is, "finish your degree sooner rather than later." Suddenly all those life experience degrees become more appealing. I expect various levels of legitimacy to have different lengths of study.
