    First of all a bit about my academics:
    GCSEs: 8 As 2 A* 1 B
    A Level Choices: Biology, Psychology, Geography

    I want to do something in the medical world/field, but I really don't know what. I want a career that is rewarding with patient contact and communication, but I also want this to be balanced out with good pay. Medicine and Dentistry were options but I do not think I am smart enough, and I do not want to take Chemistry for A Level (because I basically don't like it and I almost know I'd fail lol).

    I looked into other careers like Diagnostic Radiography, Optometry, Nursing, Paramedic, Operating Department Practitioner etc. but all have negatives (low pay, limited universities that teach the course, male:female ratio..) and I don't look at one and think "wow that's what I want to do for the rest of my life".

    I go to careers advisers and they just direct me to the same webpage every time and I'm just really worried about the future! I don't feel like I'm ever good enough for anything..

    Help..?

    take a gap year and get a bit of life experience before committing to a degree that you are not 100% about.

    Read books, join clubs, try new things. You might not have your calling yet or maybe you had it in the past it will come back though . Just do things trust me
