    Any help you can give will be appreciated.
    Since I started high school I always thought I was going to join the Navy (never giving much though in to what life in the Navy would actually be like). It was only very recently I really thought if it would be for me or not, and I don't think it is. The more I thought the more a realised that I had an interest in Animals and I'm thinking of a career working with them (not dead set on it though) and if I was going to do so I would like to go to Uni to study a course relating to animals. However, most courses want you to take biology at a level, but since I didn't think of this as an option when choosing my a levels, I didn't choose biology (I choose Psychology, Classics and Religious Studies). I was wondering if I do decide to choose this path, what could I do to take a course at uni, could I go to collage and do biology, or if I did relevant work experience for a gap year, would that help.
    Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't think you should give up, there's always another route or path to get what you want to do. It's one of these things that's easier said than done, but don't settle if you're not satisfied in my opinion

    Are you in 2nd year college?

    Try the Prospects career Planner to see if your thoughts are confirmed.
    I would look into getting some voluntary experience in the field perhaps, which shouldn't be too hard within that area. What specifically would you like to do with animals in work, or what sort of things do you like generally which you would like to do?
    What animal related university course do you like the look of?
