    Hi all,
    hope everyone is well..
    Anyways, im super confused on what i should do this yr. i was really interested in forensics and criminology and everything. I passed most of my gcses apart from science (i know) well anyways this yr i took up my first course at college which was applied science an im receiving the results this august, this yr i also was running back & forth between a lawyer and missed out on loads but still managed to catch up on everything however we had a mixup at start of yr and literally for 3 months nobody had done any work an then right at the end we was given a new unit which everyone had to rush :/ so given thaat! Im thinking of taking up level 3 extended dip in health & social as i took it up for gcses btec and progressing onto uni and doing nursing and midwifery as i enjoy that sort of work too.. however all of this seems super hard an everything because i failed my science & maths at gcse level. I also had a dental nursing apprenticeship set on the side as a backup bcos of everything and ive been given a chance.. If i do the apprenticeship can it help me progress to nursing or a wider variety..? Any opinions on what i should do? Please dont be rude because im trying my best. Thank you to everyone who posts & helps xoxoxox

    If you failed science and maths the chances are that something like forensics and nursing aren't for you.
    To be honest and not to be rude here...degrees in things like forensics and criminology are often very difficult to find jobs with after graduating.
    I'd go with the apprenticeship.
