    Hi everyone - I'm new here and looking for some advice.

    Basically, I'm currently doing my AS year and I've always known that science was the path I wanted to go down, however due to multiple reasons I freaked out when enrolling in college and only ended up taking biology and no other science related courses. I thought that I could just chose another career path, but now I'm realising that science is the only thing I really have a passion for. Although I have an idea as to what other course I'd do at uni, I don't feel as motivated knowing that I won't be doing something I really love.

    I was just wondering if anyone had any advice or any idea at all as to what my options are - thanks in advance.

    Options:
    Drop out before you do your exams and re-take your options.
    Take up an accelerated A-level in a science in your A2 year (so basically, start revising from the summer holidays). You can take up a science like Physics or Chemistry, finish the AS in the summer and get learning for the A2.
    Do nothing. But FYI a Biology A-level isn't gonna open up doors for many sciences. Most sciences want two A-levels. Biology & Chem or Physics & Maths are the usual couple.
