    Hey, I am at the moment taking a gap year after a levels and received 4 A ( bio,chem,maths, chinese) and A* in EPQ. I would like to be like Awesome Genius and be rich. ( He's such an inspiration http://static1.tsrfiles.co.uk/15.8.2.../smilies/u.gif)

    I would like to seek advices on what kind of career option I should go into based on my a levels. I heard investment banking can earn you lots. ( I am willing to sell my soul, not my body) I've researched about it and I quite liked it. What kind of course should I get into for uni?

    Doesnt really matter what course you do, Just try and get into the best university possible, ideally oxbridge,Imperial,warwick,UCL or LSE. I wouldnt pursue it only because of the money, theres quite a few other jobs out there that have a higher pay check, if your really interested in the finance game then go for it.

    Medicine, dentistry , Engineering, start your own business, top lawyers etc etc

    If you really wanna get rich then ideally pursue what you enjoy doing. If you look at every successful wealthy individual they all got to that stage by doing something they loved not but choosing which path pays the most. Actors,singers, musicians, chefs etc. The are so many different ways to make ALOT of money out there.
