    Previous to results day i had been thinking about doing Biology at a good Russell group university. My results were a bit of a disappointment, i got B in biology, history and psych and a D in chemistry. i have realised i am not in love with biology and am really not sure whether i do want to study it at uni.

    However if i don't do this i have no idea what i want to do....
    -i would like to do a job working with people
    -i have considered medicine but i am not the best at chemistry so that's not doable

    If you have any advice please help

    How about something along the lines of nursing or social work? Lots of opportunities there that don't require a stellar academic background.

    I have thought about nursing but I have juvenile arthritis in my hands which makes it hard to do some tasks which I think would be involved!! Thanks though

    Psychology would open up a lot of areas regarding people and working with them - it is the study of people! There are plenty of area within it as well giving you lots of options!

    Fair enough Is handwriting currently / likely to become a problem?

    I still stand by my statement of social work, or perhaps teaching, or something that isn't a profession but which can be very rewarding eg uni widening participation.

    Beware of psychology - the path to practice is long, hard, expensive and very few people manage it.

    Psychology is a very good degree, which can lead to a career in social care if your into kids (Or adults/disability people - something which must give a huge satisfaction doing <3)
