    I love chemistry, biology and maths. I like the idea of the job prospects within chemical engineering but I am not a massive fan of physics and I don't know if I would particularly enjoy the content.

    How do I decide?

    Medicine and engineering aren't really alike at all, so the best way to decide would be whichever one appeals to you the most: being a doctor or being an engineer.

    Have you done work experience? Engineering work experience is very difficult to come by, but perhaps something related to medicine would help you ascertain whether you want to become a doctor or not.

    Medicine is hugely competitive so if you're not really sure and not that bothered/ determined to get into medicine tbh its unlikely you will get a place. Engineering is very different to medicine and if you don't like physics maybe not the best idea? What about biochemistry?
