    Hi guys!!
    So, I was wondering what everyones degree choices are for university, that's if you're wanting to go to university. I'm so stuck, I have a rough idea of what i want to do but i feel like I'm going round in circles in choosing something for definite and it's also not helping when I try to look into career prospects after university.
    I take biology, chemistry and maths and I think I want to do biochemistry, but am unsure of the job opportunities after the degree and if i want to work in a lab. What other options are there?

    Consider which subjects are going well and what you like doing in your lessons. I personally liked more medical bio than chem so I'm doing Biomedical Sciences- your choice doesnt have to be the one with the most jobs at the end. Research!

    I feel the exact same way .
    I took Maths, Business, Law and Economics at AS.
    I might take all of them again at A2.
    I narrowed my university choices down to Economics and Law, but i'm pretty set on law, because i could see myself as a criminal barrister and i love te subject.

    But biochemistry sounds like a good idea and because science is a relatively new emmerging job sector, there will be plenty of jobs in the future.

    sounds great! i think either of those options have a great career prospect. I hope you're right, it's just the majority of science jobs are in the lab.
