I feel so old.

Depends on who you compare yourself to. I will graduate my bachelors next summer and by then, I will have been studying for 7 years. I'm expecting that I will need another 2-3 years for my masters, so when I'm done with that, I will have studied at Uni for roughly 9-10 years. And for the job I want to do there will be a further education I have to complete which will last for another 2 years.
I have several reasons why I'm so "slow". I am legally blind and of course that makes studying at a University much harder for me. I also spent some time abroad. And I had some setback because of my health condition related to the disability. And studying in my country generally takes longer than in America or Great Britain. But perhaps most importantly, I've never much cared about how long I take. I enjoy studying quite a lot and I want to learn stuff. Other people rush through their studies like crazy and constantly freak out about how long they've already been at Uni. But the truth is this: when you're 50, nobody will ever care how long it took you. Nobody will ask you "Soooo how long did it take YOU to finish your studies?". Worrying about this seems so pointless. It's like worrying when you get to have your first time sex. When it comes, it comes.0

It depends on what you're doing and what degree you're getting. Most people can get their bachelors degree in 4 years. However, sometimes if someone is doing a double major or experience certain setbacks with scheduling, it may take them a year or two longer to graduate. So, I don't think 6 years is "abnormal" or anything.1
