Ive tried going to careers advisors and it did nothing but waste my time. I have a strong desire to help people and was considering medicine but after my as-level results and i got a D in chemistry obviously that is no longer an option, however i still have a strong desire to go into some sort of healthcare profession. I also want a job that will pay fairly well, i know that sounds sad as the whole point is i want to help people but i want a job which will bring out the best of my abilities. I am taking through Biology which is the subject i enjoy the most, along with geography and history through to A2 level. And would apreciate any sugestions on what careers might fit the bill and what payscale tends to be.
why is medicine not an option?
If you think that a D was a fair mark of you ability, then fair enough, if not I've seen people turn AS Chem d grades to A or B grades come A2 and sucessfully float off to the fab world of medicine...
Having said that - if you were going into medicine for money, perhaps look at a different career altogether.
D is not a fair reflection of my ability in chemistry, however i do not feel it is an option to up my grade to an A/B at A2 level, its a difficult subject and even the best people at chemistry at my college seemed to only just scrape a B at AS level and along with this i didnt get along with the teachers. Therefore i dont think its a option to do medicine any more inless i apply as a grad after a relevant degree course. Dont get me wrong i want to work hard and i want to help people and by no means is the reason money.
Ahh well guess i'm not cut out for dentistry or medicine. At least not for 06 entry now, any idea how hard it is to get into the courses as a graduate? and what degree would need to be taken to make this an option?
