    Hi all,
    My college interview is tomorrow giving me an opportunity to change courses.
    Originally I chose economics, law, maths and psychology however I have decided that I would like to change law.

    I was going to change law to either sociology or biology. I am pushing more towards biology. This leads on to my dilemma of choosing psychology or chemistry.

    If I were to choose chemistry this could lead me onto the medicine route or alternatives as I would have two main sciences however I found psychology very interesting during the taster days. Also taking biology and chemistry would open up more doors.

    Are you/have you taken any of biology, chemistry, economics, law, maths, psychology or sociology? What were your opinions on them?

    What exactly do you want to do after A levels?
    Would help us a bit to see if it is the best decision for the direction you want to take...

    All I see are "Ifs" like "If" if I were to take chemistry, medicine, "If" I were to take biology and chem, more doors will open.

    You must have SOME kind of idea which field you want to enter or career you want?

    I would either go to university to study business with economics or medicine however I am quite interested in psychology with criminology.

    A-levels in Chemistry, Maths, and then two other strong subjects should cover you for applying to any of those courses

    It depends. If you do go on to take Chemistry, then yes, Medicine as a career will be available to you. However, you have to think carefully about whether you enjoy Chemistry enough to see it through for another 2 years. You are more likely to perform better academically if you have a genuine interest in the subject- work won't be seen as the spawn of Satan when you think you just can't carry on. If this is the case, I would choose Psychology (if you have a bigger interest in the actual subject).

    On the other hand, if you really can't see yourself in any other profession than Medicine, then you had better pick biochem.
