    Hi, guys I had received my AS grades yesterday, I had achieved
    Biology: A
    History: A
    Economics: B
    Chemistry B

    very pleased with my results.
    my GCSE's are
    Biology, chemistry, physics and maths at A*
    English lit, history, german, RE and further maths at A. further maths is igcse aqa, which contains most of it core 1 maths.
    English language and geography at B.

    the question I need help on is what courses can I do?
    I am looking for a job with good pay, around £28,000+ starting salary and potentially up to or over £100,000 after many years.

    the job needs to have a decent employment rate as we all know, no one wants to be inactive after gaining their degree.

    I don't mind reasonably long hours. I am sorry if I sound like a snob or greedy, its just that finance plays a large part in my job selection. its quite important for me.

    I have had a look at dentistry and law so far. But am not interested in medicine, as I cannot stand studying for over 5 years, it just seems too long.

    please can someone help me find a course, that my grades and subjects allow me to get into, that meets the above criteria of great pay, good employability chances and short year course. around 3-5 years.

    sorry if it looks like im looking for the holy grail of uni courses.
    thank you
