    Well if I could get into medicine that would be amazing, but I'm trying not to set my heart on it too much because even the best people out there can struggle to get in. If not I would probably consider doing something with chemistry, what about you? Have you any ideas of what you want to do?

    That's true! Queen's has a very competitive Medicine course!
    I have no ideas . I've always had the idea of doing something to do with the EU, though I don't what! If I go down the Mathematical route, I'll most likely end up in the finance sector and I don't see myself doing that, yet doing English might just push me towards being an English teacher, which again I don't see myself doing. Hopefully English with French could open up a few more doors.

    Chemistry isn't second rate it's awesome... It's a degree I'd want to do
    I'm not suggesting it is second rate, I'm saying it is something I would consider if I didn't get into a different course because I don't even know half of the range of different jobs there are with it

    It all sounds very interesting! I know what you mean though, there are some subjects I love but I couldn't see what careers I could get out of them! Tough decisions.

    Well there is certainly a range of things out there! I have always wondered about going into something to do with forensics.

    Yes I have seen that and it looks great! I'd love to know someone who does it! I've also seen courses with chemistry and it includes a year in Australia! I think the travel aspect of that in itself is an amazing opportunity

    Very brave! I wanted to continue with Spanish for AS but I think it would be much much more stressful than GCSE! Although I still feel like I should do a language
