    Hi all,
    so I'm just going to get straight to the point- I have no idea what career path to take, once I have finished my A levels.
    I achieved 6A's 4B's and 2C's in my GCSES and I am currently studying biology, sociology, English language and chemistry at A level (first year).
    I understand that with these options that there are a wide range of options for me; I just cant find a suitable career that I feel I can go into and enjoy- whilst it also be 9-5 and £30,000 plus. I know that medicine and dentistry apply here, however I don't think Ill be taking chemistry further, in order to that.
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Hey! You're still studying and by the end of the year you'll have a good idea of what you like and what you dislike in terms of subjects. Your grades may place a role in what you do in the future. I'm not going to list everything you could possibly go into because again there are so many options which is both overwhelming and exciting. If you want to earn more than 30k+ you should consider dentistry and medicine since they usually have a higher wage. Your sixth form/college will help you since there are career fairs and trips to university open days. You can also ask teachers since they've been through the whole process. At my old sixth form they had a careers advisor who helped you into choosing a possible career. Next year there'll be way more pressure on choosing career choices because of university, but right now just sit tight and enjoy. You'll figure it out eventually! Good luck :')

    We do have a career advisor so I am hoping to go and speak to her about it.
    Thanks for the advice and fingers crossed something good will come out of this
