    For a long time I have had my sights set on studying veterinary medicine, completing an extensive amount of work experience and striving to achieve the necessary grades. However, I have recently questioned my interest in the subject.

    I have been asking my self; am I more interested in the image than the study? salary over providing help?

    I have been considering other courses such as Chemistry, Biochemistry and Maths. I am a rather introverted person and believe I wouldn't have a problem doing a job in which I would work alone. Although I can deal with people if required.

    I have also considered not going to uni and simply applying to the police service or as a pilot in the RAF. I feel I would thoroughly enjoy the work of a police officer and would even aspire to become a detective.

    As you can tell I'm rather confused and not in two minds but about ten. Any help would be much appreciated

    You do sound confused. Going to uni is not necessary and isn't for everyone. It's also a lot of money to spend if you're unsure. I'd say take some time off and gain work experience. Then decide what you want to do and what you need to do it.
