Okay, so a few years ago I decided that at university I wanted to study Physics. I've always loved science and maths and all that stuff so I thought it would be a super cool route to take and therefore started pursuing these kind of career paths.
I completed my GCSE's; I got 4 A*s, 8 As and 2 Bs.
I decided to take Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths at AS Level.
I am now approaching the end of Year 12 and have therefore been thinking about University courses more recently, and have started seriously doubting my decision to study Physics. Even though I really like it, I don't think that I will be able to progress as it is something that I do find very challenging and don't think it naturally suits me very well. I am also someone who needs to have a job involving lots of human interaction as I am a real people person.
I think that studying medicine would be absolutely incredible and I believe that I would really enjoy it and would work extremely hard however, I am aware that compared to a lot of other people applying to take Medicine, I may have made this decision very late.
Whilst looking at courses I see that a lot of universities like applicants to have taken Biology to at least AS Level (if not A Level) and I completely understand why. This means that I would be lacking on this part of my application. Also my GCSE grades would drag me down as I know they're not as high as many of the people I would be against during the application process.
I wanted to know peoples thoughts on my whole situation.
I was considering maybe dropping further maths at A Level and studying Biology in my own time(?)
If anyone has any advice or information or tips or questions, please help me out.
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
