    My parents want me to do health care (medicine and dentistry) and while i like the idea of talking to people, and the variety in medicine. I am unsure as to if i like caring for people (really have no idea, i dont mind being a doctor) so will probably go for it if i have nothing i want to do.

    Teaching, yeah i dont mind but my parents will lowkey be dissapointed lol.

    Maths- i dont like the idea of spending 2 hours to do 1 question, i like maths but im not super into it.
    Another piece of advice, Medicine is very competative and I think to get an offer your heart really has to be in it. Interviews for medicine are tough and I think interviewers can easily spot if you lack passion, plus you would need to spend the next year gaining suitable work experience.

    Edit: and also don't do something your parents are pushing you to do if you do not really want to, more than likely you will lack motivation to do the work and end up either dropping out or maybe finishing with a low class degree. Which I'm sure disappoint not only your parents but yourself.

    The issue is that i dont know what i like, when i was younger video games,acting but not anymore. Soorts i like but i suck at, and have no intrest in writing about
    I found my love of atoms and basically the whole quantum world by looking at everything that caught my attention and trying to work out how it worked. The key to finding your passion is to follow your curiosity. If something raises a question in your head go and answer that question. Doing so will raise more questions, so go and find the answers to them as well. Before you know it you'll find yourself in a field you hadn't even considered before, but which you really enjoy.

    Well my sister is doing similar subjects and she doesn't know what she wants. She's applying for medicine bc she says she might as well as there's not anything else she wants to do which is...fair enough i guess.

    with medicine after 3 years at most universities you get a Bsc in medical sciences anyway so if you decide you don't like it you don't have to do 6 years to get the degree. And you could go into anything after - this is what a biology teacher at my school did.

    But if I were you I would either do which ever a level subject you like the most, or take a year off. maybe work or travel and i think finally being out of school could help you find yourself and realise what it is you want to do in life.
