    I'm really sorry, I'm compleatly new to this site, so I wasn't quite sure where I should post my thread.

    This is a bit long winded but I'd appreciate the help.

    I hold an intrest for social sciences and mental health.

    At first I thought I'd like to study Social Anthropology, however upon further investigation I found that the amount of salary paid on a genral basis was to low. As well as finding that it's mostly reserch etc.

    Then I found Pshycology, however it was a similar story and seemed it was a "lesser version" of Psyciatry,

    Then I found Clinical Psycology but it was much the same story as the latter.

    So now I'm debating going down a medical route. However I've already chosen my A levels: History, Sociology, Phylosophy Ethics and Religious Studies (as one) and English Lit. At another college I chose: Early modern history, Anthropology, Sociology, English Lit and Language, Phylosophy and Politics.

    Although, I now face possibly having to change my A levels to match that of the medical profession ( Biology Chemistry Physics and English Lit) along with a pre-clinical course at the second college. However, I then feel like I'm putting to much pressure on myself, as I don't enjoy Chemistry and Physics. Secondly there is always the possibility I'll change my mind yet again. I would of then shut to many doors to other paths.

    To conclude, I'd like to know if there are any careers I haven't thought of or just general advice anybody has for me?

    Thank you.
