    Naa 😂 medicine just seems so long, I do enjoy it but I cbb for so much competition and time which is hard to find a job (from what I've seen and heard)

    I've always wanted to work In a bank since like year 5 (when I got gifted and talented in maths I don't know why I'm like anyone else) so I just associated banks with maths, so that was my goal... Then frok like year 7-11 this didn't really change but I didn't really care about school or the future, but after exams I realised I'm getting close to uni I should start thinking (as my brother is it year 13 and he don't know what he wants to do and is panicking) so I wanted to be sure and stress tree so In the summer I Startrd researching banking and came across investment banking and yh I chose this, and then since then I've been motivated to work, before I'd never revise now I'm revising on the holidays so yeah it was good and I've just been researching it a lot and asking questions so I can learn more
    And no, I've only worked in a nursery? But I'm going to try get some experience on a bank this year

    I wrote a book basically

    Wow you've done actual work this holiday! Writing a damn essay.. too much work for the summer. I had work experience last week at MUFG, an investment bank, some parts were a bit tedious but other than that it was AMAZING. We got to do job shadowing and visit Bloomberg and use their software to observe stocks live. It was awesome!

    Spongebob is for life so I'm at a loss to what you are insinuating.

    Somehow my school managed to get us the experience, my school and MUFG apparently have a partnership or something. The part that was tedious was when we were given a lecture on investment banking, but it wasn't really the content it was more the guy presenting was just reading off the powerpoint. Aside from that everything was so interesting and great fun but the trading game almost killed my brain, I was so confused. But my team came third so I guess I somewhat knew what I was doing, however I don't think I will be becoming a trader perhaps a finance manager or investment analyst.

    Cool, so are you leaning more towards banking or medicine?

    Right now I'm leaning towards banking, but at the end of the month I'm shadowing a vascular surgery to get a greater insight into medicine so perhaps I will change my mind. What will you do if you don't become an investment banker?

    Do something else in the bank - middle office, back office? Accountancy, anything really I don't know yet, no back up plan, I need one don't. Hopefully we won't need to use it. I was gonna ask you the same but I'm guessing medicine?, btw what exam boards are you doing?

    And enjoy your shadowing experience ; I don't like surgery 😬

    Yh medicine is my back up. When you ask about exam boards, do you mean for GCSE or A levels? Thanks, I love surgery- well at least looking at bodies, which is basically the same thing so it should be fun.

    'Looking at bodies' is very different to cutting up bodies and stuff 😂; but if you were speaking about the shadowing then yeah mb I just don't like seeing all the blood and pain (can't see pain but you know that I mean) and for A-levels? Also how many A*, As, Bs etc. Do you think you will get for gcses
