    7 years for a PhD on it's own? :eek:
    Yep, it's a long time isn't it!

    But, I'd get to be called 'Dr Allan', and go into the field I want, which is quite cool

    And eh? You're going to earn 30K a year... and not spend a penny... for nearly a decade?

    How does that work?

    Do you know what field you're interested in?

    I'd love to do a PhD if I end up studying History, but not if I end up doing English. That's assuming I don't decide to do something to do with boats after my degree... () and I'm, still interested in teaching English abroad after I've graduated! God, it's refreshing to have an open mind!

    :awesome:

    I think Aeronautical is more rewarding financially and is more interesting but the competition is IMMENSE at the Uni's I want to apply to. With Mechanical I think I'd have more of a chance
    Really? What Uni's are you looking at, cus' Engineering overall shouldn't be as competitive as things like Medicine or Economics.

    I'm looking at Louborough, Bham or Manchester with a year in industry. Are you doing F.Maths?

    I do too at Hollister but I'm guessing I'm going to have to give that up shortly and get a job volunteering or something to keep my options open regarding medicine.

    I'm doing maths, physics and chemistry at college, with no idea of what I want to do in the future. Is it worth doing work experience seeing as I don't know what I want to work as?

    Ye...
    I'm looking at Cambridge, Cardiff, UCL, Imperial etc. (Not Oxford though)..

    Good choices

    Nahh, that's also going to bring my application down a bit. I'm taking Maths Mechanics, Chemistry, Physics and Economics.

    Quantum Computation or perhaps Abstraction Theory. Something cutting-edge though ideally

    And what's happened to your hopes and dreams of Archaeology?!

    Good to see you're still abroad to go abroad, I'm hoping to spend part of my gap year in Korea teaching English

    i volunteer at beaver scouts, and am an explorer scout myself. i also am in the process of joining the st.johns ambulance.

    hope to get a week at hospital this summer along with a week at a primary school (have already done 2 weeks). i want to go into paediatrics (Hence the kid stuff)

    or become a brain surgeon (least likely option lol)

    So on moderation day, do you think my Art exam will get marked? Sorry for bothering everyone, Im just getting freaked out. I want to get a C or above in that subject as it's my favourite and it's also my top choice at college. For the Art exam, my painting is worth 25% and my sketchbook is worth 75%. I really don't want to fail.
    I'm pretty sure everyones will be moderated, not like some subjects, where only a sample of everyones work is.

    Helloooo :llama: (sorry- just discovered the list of smilies!)

    im a 'medic hopeful' aiming for 7A*'s and 3A's, I've got volunteering and work experience lined up, doing bio, chem, phys, maths for a level and hoping to get into oxford
    Wow, you sound so organised, i'm doing the same Alevels apart from switching Maths for Geography (contraversial i know)! Tbh, i'm not worrying about the uni in particular, i'll go anywhere who wants me!

    (Original post by g.k.galloway)
    elderly people homes mainly zero replies - thought it was actually quite rude to not even acknowledge my interest
    i do volunteering but i hope to get some hospital work exp soon
    Yea, a lot of people don't bother to reply! I'd rather them reply with just a "no" as atleast i know they've seen and acknowledged it...
    Hospital work experience this early on will be great for your application i'm sure!

    I'd say that work experience might actually help you discover something that you'd adore to do for your career. :P

    If you invent a new groundbreaking product, please let me have one for free instead of forking out hundreds of pounds for it!

    I just realised how much I loved History, so I'm not going to settle for anything less just because I didn't achieve an A* at GCSE level.

    Korea hmm? North or South? Nah, I kid. I know it's far in the future, but you should really consider creating a blog about your gap year when it comes. I'd love to see the pictures!

    I did a week at my primary school for work experience because I was too slow taking up other jobs and such :rant:......But now I can see that it may be useful should I wish to become a paediatrician

    Good luck

    Hmm, Cambridge and UCL dont offer straight aeronautics, thats general. I would like general, but I dont like Chemical or electronic, so I'm not sure?

    I'm taking similar A-levels to you: Maths, Physics, Economics and Geography. My backup being F.Maths but my dad isn't toohappy about that.

    What soughta' stuff you putting in your PS, I have a few stuff lined up..

    If you like boats so much, why not do Engineering?

    I prefer the idea of being Officer on a ship rather than the engineering aspect of it really. Plus I'm crap at Physics.
