I have always wanted to be a forensic scientist since i discovered the subjects which was about the age of 9. That is all i want to do, I'm not sure how to go about it and very shortly I have my options coming up. I know i know not exactly a disaster but never the less I scary time for me. I feel I need to go in exactly the direction of forensics. I can not get hardly any useful advice to help me and am now beginning to dread that my career is falling before has even started. I just wondered if anyone had any useful sites or resources to help me?
There's different types of forensics too, lab based ones that process the evidence found and analytic ones out in the field who also try to determine what has happened.
There isn't any options specifically in school that help you directly, however Electronics and Law are more relevant than the others. Electronics will help you with your physics and Law will help you with your morals!
Specifically look at University websites via http://www.ucas.com under the Forensic Science subject choice, here you'll be given more information as to what you need to study it and specifically what you'll be taught.
As for AS levels after your GCSEs, go Maths/Physics/Chemistry/Biology. The Biology isn't overly important but it could of course help you with cases where you're scraping up intestines for DNA samples. Not to dishearten you though!
