Hi everyone, so along with many others I have just receieved my GCSE results, and now don't know what to do for A level. I got 3 A*'s in english language, spanish and RE and then 7 A's in the rest.
There are two routes I could go down; one is the science route where I would take chemistry, biology, psychology and english lit and the other is the more arty route where I would take art, english lit and language and psychology. I am naturally much better at the arts, and english and art are my favourite subjects, but I'm worried that I won't be able to find a career with those things. I have always wanted to work with animals, and so I thought the best way would to be go down the scientific route.
Other peopler, like my parents, can't understand why i would want to do science since i have never shown an interest in it before, yet I have always loved drawing and writing, but my experience of GCSE art was not that great, and I'm worried about the workload at A level, especially if I would be taking two english subjects as well. I have always seen universities from the science point of view, which may have altered me slightly, because my brother is reaallly clever and is now doing mechanical engineering and I guess I have always looked to him for inspiration, even though I'm not amazing at science.
It's not so much that I'm worried of being incapable of either, I just worry that with art and english, the workload will be too high for me to cope, and I don't want to lose passion for the subjects, but then I'm not really passionate about science at all, but I think I could do well in it, and it might get me a good job.
Sorry if that made no sense, I'm panicking!
