Careers for Biology, Maths (including statistics and decision) and Psychology A level watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just finished 6th form and I have no clue whatsoever as to what career I should do.

    I have always been interested in having a career where I am directly helping others and have mainly looked within medical based careers. Doctors and other complex careers like that have been ruled out as I wish to start work as quickly as possible. And so I applied for uni in hopes of getting into an adult nursing course. Unfortunately I failed at the interview stages that I then concluded that nursing may not be the right path for me...

    Psychology is a subject that I excelled the most at compared to the other subjects I took for 6th form and thought about maybe doing a psychology course instead, but I got put off by the rather low employment rate for the jobs within healthcare with just a bachelors degree.

    I love maths and accounting may have been an option too but any business related jobs are just a big NOPE in my mind.

    Really lost and hopeless right now about my future so any ideas on what I could do in my current state?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
