I'm still not sure if I want a career in science; currently I'm finding biology and chemistry pretty dull at AS Level (I don't know if that's just because we're doing less interesting topics). Biology has lost its appeal; I used to be so interested in evolution and genetics but now it just seems like it doesn't make as much sense as it used to, and I'm not really interested in the detail. I don't know if I should stick these subjects out and if worst comes to worst try and apply for a subject like History or PPE at uni if I find that my interest in them doesn't grow. How do I know if I'll enjoy a career in science? I want to travel when I'm older, perhaps live in some other countries. My parents say I should just do I science degree and then venture into something else if I still don't enjoy it. However I don't know if I'll be able to make it through a degree. Please, any advice from people who have done science A Levels. Is it natural to find them boring at first? It's been four weeks and I am really not enjoying the lessons but it might just be because we're doing beginner's stuff.

It's worrying that say you're not really interested in the detail of, say, genetics! Science is detail, and it gets more detailed the further you get into it. There's not really any way out of this.

Mayb it's not that you've lost interest it's that you don't really understand the content so it seems like a drag/boring.
Possible try working hard with your teachers until you get the content and see how you like it then.
And what drew you to a science career in the first place what exactly did you find interesting about it ? If you know y you were interested mayb you can again find that interest .
