    I'm applying to colleges and I need some advice, the subjects that I have picked so far are biology, physiology, chemistry. I don't know wether I should pick sociology or philosophy as my 4th options.
    When it comes to university and future career I don't have something specific in mind hence why I want a range of opportunities. I do know that I want something that's related to science - biology, going into studying medicine or forensic science.

    What subject do you think you'd enjoy most and do well in? So long as you meet the minimum requirements for the course you want to do, your 4th subject can be anything of your choice (bar critical thinking/general studies)

    Hi Beatrice, it's nice to find someone in the same position as I in terms of applying for colleges as I'm also in year 11.

    It is very important to know what career path you want to go into in the future so that you can pick subjects that will steer you in the right direction. It is also very beneficial to have an idea of which universities you may apply to, so that you know what the entry requirements are for your preferred course.

    In terms of Philosophy or Sociology, I would personally opt for sociology as it goes into more depth study of society WE live in, it can also be a back-up route in the social work sector and you can consider careers, such as nursing.
