    I'm fifteen, going into year 11 in september and have no idea what I'm going to do in the future. I love graphics design on the computer, Drama is brilliant but I don't see many jobs which could include my skills. I know that I need to know the best decision but I'm blind and don't know where to start.

    Does anyone know any jobs which include these types of skills? I'm hopeful that I'll do well in english (I love writing,) maths is gonna be a struggle and science is just something I need to prepare myself for.

    P.S. I had no idea what category this could go in, but I'm sure this is an everyday issue people think about

    You don't need to make a decision now. You do need to do something you enjoy though.

    Hey I studied graphic design and drama at school and went on to do a BTEC in Art & Design, followed by a Graphic Design degree and here I am as Lead Designer at The Student Room

    My advice is do what you love, I didn't worry about what job I'd have until the last year of uni, I just knew I wanted to design and followed that Educational path.

    If you are not sure do a few A-levels in those subjects and then see which one you prefer at the end of it

    focus on getting your qualifications for now, any decisions you make career wise will probably change over the next few years

    I was in the same position you were in last year .I finally made my decision based on job prospects.I mean it is all very well learning what you enjoy but at the end of day you need those qualifications to get you somewhere.and at the end of the day careers are not your life ,its just a job .just one tiney part of your life. However it is also important to choose something that intrests you as you need motivation to get you qualifications.
