i dunno about you guys,but at my country,the doctors who work at govrnment firms arent paid very ewll even if its after their specialist course...i have so far encountered a doctor from my country which earned about 2000 pounds...thats the most i saw and he has a very good reputation...
how bout the trainees undergoing housemanship??They are just earning a mere 250 pounds....how could you consider that a stable income??
and yet people still take it...and i dont think that they did it out of the interest of money...but more on their personal interest..and i believe thats what finally counts
What a lot of people don't seem to recognise is that most would-be doctors don't go into medicine for the perceived money/status. There are far easier ways to earn an excellent salary outside medicine - the reason I went into medicine is that I'd rather look back in 20 years time and think about the number of people whose lives I've made in difference to, as opposed to the number of figures in my bank balance (it sounds cheesy, but it does resemble the truth).
People should never apply to medical school with the illusion that it's just an alternative to being a lawyer, for instance. Those are the people that end up dropping out or changing career once they've graduated, and by no coincidence, these people had fantasies of bags of 'money' and 'respect'.

SORRY BUT WHAT CAREERS ARE OUT THERE FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME!

MY TEACHERS SEEM TO THINK THAT UNLESS YOU BECOME A DOCTOR OR LAWYER YOU'RE A FAILURE IN LIFE!

ARE THERE NO OTHER CAREERS WHICH MAKE A DECENT AMOUNT OF MONEY!
LOL

a doctor and lawyer makes very little money comparing with a investment banker in a top bank! But then, there are indeed top lawyers and top doctors, but the top salary is not the doctor/lawyer sector but finance/business!

We had a girl at my school who combined English and biology at university. She is now working for a fashion magazine so journalism - as suggested in another post may well be worth considering. Don't shoot me down but marketing employs a lot of English graduates. There are a lot of hack marketing jobs but Allen Leighton who runs Royal Mail and quite a few other chief execs started out from there.
I think you are at GCSE level currently?? The key thing is probably to choose subject combinations which don't limit you too much later.

i'm going to assume you're year 11 or below? so what are your gcse predictions, and what are you good at?
to be honest GCSE are a load of rubbish- all they do is show how well you can juggle different subjects and and deal with some stress at early age imo.
juist because you don't like a subject now doesn't mean it'll be teh same at Alevel. infact, i really think all subjects get much mroe interesting. it's because it's more connectd to real life and goes into greater detail. so i'd go do open days at 6thform and really see if those subjects u dislike are really that awful.
if u like french and good at it, i'd consider it. if u liek biology, do it- science is always good. if u did chem, u can always do pharmacy. chem is really important for a lot of BSc degrees
the point is dont dismiss subjects yet. also speak to a careers advisr if possible and dont let any1 force u to do something
