My year is applying for Uni this year and I have been looking at prospectuses etc for over a year and still don't really know what to do.
I had my heart set on medicine but for reasons which I won't post on here its not going to happen.
I had also been interested in Radiography, Pharmacy and Mental Health nursing aswell as a Psychology degree.
At GCSE I got 4A*'s, 7A's and 1B.
As Level: Geography A, Maths Chemistry and Biology B's.
I know I dont want to do a geography degree, maths degree or a pure science degree.
I have always been interested in a career in healthcare and its definetly what I am leading towards.
Human behaviour and mental health has always interested me hence a psychology degree or mental health nursing.
I did work experience in a hospital particularly focused in Imaging which pushed me towards Radiography which I also find interesting.
Pharmacy has also interested me and since Medicine has become unattainable Ive been thinking about this. I would want to end up working in a hospital as a pharmacist as I have read you can specialise and there is a lot more patient contact.
As the school deadline is approaching for deciding I need to decide quickly.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated thanks.

You don't have to apply to uni this year. If you really don't know what to do then you shouldn't rush into making a decision and end up doing something you're unhappy with or unsure about. You could take a gap year to give you more time to think about what you want to do

Take a gap year trust me.
I rushed into deciding to do an Economics degree when I didn't really have my heart set on anything and 2 years later I've left and I'm reapplying to study Physiotherapy, only with a heap load of debt as well.
Take your time and try and discover what you really feel passionately about before you apply.

You could always apply for medicine again in a few years as a graduate. You could train as a pharmacist and get experience in hospital then eventually go to med school. You can even do this if you have a degree in geography on some graduate courses. But, as Mazza suggested, maybe you should take a year out to take time to choose what to do. There's no rush really, and you don't want to make a snap decision and end up doing a degree you might end up not enjoying.

for you, as others have suggested, no reason you shouldn't take a year out, work a little, save a bit of money... and make the decision when you are 100% sure!
