    I initially wanted to be a midwife but heard it was too tiring so went for my next option which is teaching. I'm only 14 so I do have loads of time. Is the pay for teachers good? I know its about £22,000. Should I just look for a whole new career altogether. I want a well-paid career that is quite enjoyable. I am predicted B's but some A's.

    Well, what are you good at in terms of subjects? What do you enjoy the most? What careers apart from those two are you most interested in?

    I'm not really sure of other job options. I enjoy all my subjects equally.
    Here are my predictions if that helps:
    ENGLISH - A
    SCIENCE - B
    MATHS - B
    RE/CITIZENSHIP - B
    LANGUAGES - B
    GEOGRAPHY - B
    ART TEXTILE - B

    we will be getting a login from school for a website called jobs explorer database. I have tried the site in school and I seems really good. I might just use that to find some career choices.

    You're 14, relax. You'll change your mind a dozen times in the next couple of years anyway

    I think teaching has to be a job you have a real passion for, else I can imagine it would suck as a career. If you really enjoy working with kids then it could be great, if you don't then I imagine it gets dull, repetitive and stressful rather quickly.

    I concur with the no life. Marking, schemes of work and making resources take over and too tired for a proper social life.

    I don't trust those things. Mine said I should be a glass designer?? I have no creative skills and I'm now in the second year of my maths degree...
