    Is Radiography a good course to take? I am stuck on what to choose, or what to do.

    It would be useful if you could give a little more information to help people suggest things.

    You need to think about what you are interested in and what you might strongly dislike so people may be able to steer you away from things you won't enjoy as much.

    How do you like to work (e.g. active vs at a desk, with people vs mainly alone, 9-5 type hours or variable/shifts)?

    What qualifications do you have or are you working towards at the moment and what sort of grades do you have/ are you expecting?

    Well, I want to do a career based on healthcare but I am unsure, I am currently doing my BTEC and working towards hopefully DDD which is what I am aiming for also the entry requirement for the universities I want to go for. I am just unsure on what health-based careers are out there. It is really hard to get any sort of work experience for me to find out what I like and don't like.
    I am pretty desperate. I have chosen radiography but I don't know where it is for me.

    I think its best if you do a bit of research into they types of careers available then as there are probably loads that you are not aware of that you could well find really interesting. You could try starting here: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/jobs-and...ctor-in-the-uk

    Once you have narrowed it down I would really suggest organising some work experience because things can be different in reality to how you expect. The hospital I went to has a work experience department that organised everything for me once I'd filled in the forms. Have a look on hospital websites near you as they could have the same.
