    Future career prospects?
    Also, why biology?
    I want to become an A level biology (and chemistry) teacher.

    I just love biology, the study of life. Life is all around us and biology is so relatable to the things we see. It just really interests me, excites me and I have just always had a real passion for it. Especially evolutionary biology. You know that phase lots of kids go through where they love dinosaurs and prehistory...well I never grew out of that, I still find it amazing.

    Ah ok, I didn't particularly like oxbridge when I had a look at them. Cambridge due to the course (natural sciences, not biology) and I just didn't like oxford university...it wasn't for me.

(just copied that from my last post :P cba to write it again).

    Why not medicine. Well because it would be pointless for me as it would not lead into a job I would enjoy or could do. I did originally want to become a vet but I would never be able to deal with losing patients, causing them hard (or putting them down) I just would not be able to do it.

    And I'm from Sussex, but I know London well.

    Well, at least we want the same job.
    Althouh, I've been told if I want to be an all round science teacher, I'll have to pick up A2 Physics.
    Did As physics (am now entering my second year of my biomed degree) but, hoped I would never have to touch physics again after Edexcel's disastrous 2013 A level maths papers, completely put me off any maths related topics for life... :cry:

    Ill just describe my current partner :P Someone who I can primarily just get on with. I can have a laugh with, do stupid and silly things with but can also have intellectual discussions. Has to be able to deal with my long boring conversations about science I enjoy :P Would be nice if they like stuff like gaming (I'm not a huge gamer but the occasional game is nice) and love doctor who (alas my girlfriend hates it :P ). Loves the same music as me, has similar opinions but also has enough different views that we can discuss them (just nothing too radical). Just someone who will love me, care for me, I can trust and is just awesome, as I would give in return. Oh and romantic

    Success for me is going through life knowing you have done what you have wanted. If you want to earn millions and you have well done. If you just want a nice family and to enjoy your job, not earning a huge amount, then well done as well.

    And of course! I love making new friends.

    I just went to Imperial and fell in love with it so I know it is right for me To be honest, Imperial is just a good a name in the academic world so that's why I just went for the one that suits me.

    Awesome I like london, I come up every so often

    Awesome!

    The question will be if you want to teach all three sciences at A level or to GCSE standard. If it is to GCSE I'm sure you wont need to do A2 physics (you might need to do a refresher course that goes with your PGCE, not sure what it is called but it is where they go into specialities with your teaching degree so you learn the subject at the same time.) I did AS physics too and dropped it after AS :P

    ?
    A) No. Not a clue what I am. Honestly, I would love religion to be true but I've seen no evidence to suggest it is true so I find it hard to believe. I do totally respect anyone else's religion though

    B) Definitely not. Don't believe in anything like that :P

    How about you?

    Neither myself either. =l
    Although, both my parents are religious and my mother has this thing about magpies which puts her on edge a little where we have a nest in the back garden (plus a robin and a couple of crows).

    Whenever she sees one, she has to look for another... :rolleyes:

    As many as you can give :P

    Student accommodation (despite what my mother wishes :P She wants me to stay home with her and not go to uni...awwww )
