I am currently in sixth form studying Biology, History, English and Psychology. I completed my GCSE's last year with 12 GCSE's grade A*-B under my belt. My sixth form has now told us to think about what we would like to do in the future and I am not too sure what I want to do.
I have no career in mind. I do think it would be brilliant to work within crime though - especially MI5. The work they do in shows like Criminal Minds and 24 does really appeal to me. If I went to University I would probably study History. I would probably go to Scotland too as I would get quite an amount of my course paid for due to being Scottish. This is one option for me.
Another option at the minute is going into either the RAF or the Army as either a Police Officer (or in that field of work), or an Intelligence Officer. I think these jobs do seem very interesting as you are looking at the cause and effect of things, using forensics, crime, analysing, working as a team and most importantly gathering information to make important decisions. It does appeal to me and I went to speak to the RAF and Army today and both do seem very good. I have an RAF background with a lot of my family being in the RAF. However, I do not want to go into the RAF just because my family has done.
Therefore I was wondering which is the best option. Do I go to Uni and do History and hope to get a job out of it whilst being in so much debt? Do I go into the Army or RAF and do a degree whilst in there? Or do I join straight from A Levels with no degree? Which one is best for intelligence work? Which would be the best for me if I came out and wanted to get a job?
I hope someone can help me with these questions.
