    I'm currently doing my GCSE's and I know I'm a bit young to think about what I want to do but recently I've been looking into both medicine and chemical engineering. From what I've seen I like them both but medicine seems to be more involved with people and more science based than maths which I prefer compared with the more maths intensive engineering. I'm really torn between both of these because although medicine seems to have more pros for me than chemical engineering I still don't know!

    Any help is appreciated.

    So am i but im in year 12.
    I think with medicine you have to be 100% committed and enjoy it because it's long and difficult and you don't want to go insane.
    Because i have almost lukewarm feelings about medicine rn i don't think it's appropriate for me to do it since you have to be really passionate.
    I'm still stuck though so i'm not much help!

    If you want to do medicine, you know it. If you're unsure, don't do medicine.

    I'm aiming to enter medicine through graduate entry so I will have to take on a different degree before hand. That said I always have medicine in my mind.

    The best thing to do is get some work experience (You'll need this for Medicine anyway if you choose to do it ), it'll really help you decide on what to do, I did lots of Medical related work experience (and also Dentistry to help me choose), and found that I wanted to apply for Medicine.
