    I became really political and politically aware in year 11 and knew that I wanted to study politics, so I took it for A levels to see how it was and now i'm doing it at uni

    Wanted to do Management in year 11.

    It's not even funny how glad I am I did economics in IB, never having done it before. Within the first few weeks I knew I would want to study it at university.

    Looking at the stuff that management students do, I know I would not enjoy it in the slightest.

    PS: some people might not realise (I know lots that don't) but management and economics are entirely different subjects
    what sort of stuff do management students do?

    I wasn't really 100% sure on going to university at the start of year 11, but knew that if I did go I wanted to do a business related course, which is what I have applied for, so no, my degree choice hasn't changed.

    I wanted to become a forensic scientist until somebody told me the pay was crap so switched to wanting to do law. Decided law was boring and switched to journalism. Found out pay was crap. Now applying for languages.

    Yeah. I went from Vet Med to Engineering to Physics to Chemistry to Engineering again then finally settled on Maths.

    My applications are gone and I'm wondering if I want to do Vet Med again :/ Oh well it's gone now, can't change it.

    Medicine but then I realised I really don't care about patients and I love money more. Dentistry. But seems incredibly boring. Law but also seems incredibly boring. History which is my confirmed choice now because I enjoy it.

    Engineering or Medicine. I chose Medicine in year 12. Mind, I can remember telling people when asked what I wanted to be as a child, the very typical "I want to be a doctor". :rolleyes:

    I think I wanted to do drama/performing arts! Which seems ridiculous now as I haven't done anything to do with this at A level, nor do I participate any extra-curricular activites relating to this :lol: I've also always thought I'd do something English-y, but now I'm doing A2 lit, I think I know for sure I wouldn't cope with/enjoy doing it for the next 3 years of my life.
