    A year ago, I said I wanted to become a leading headmaster in a private school.

    Now, however, I am thinking of getting a degree in French and Linguistics and travelling the world finding out about different cultures and how they live- for as little money as possible.

    So I wouldn't say I want a hard and fast job.

    I did the same too, then took into factor job prospects and realistic salary expectations. Yes ok you have a degree but that won't get a job in itself.

    Nope, it's not crucial, but it will help you decide whether you are interested in the Biomedical Science career

    Your job doesn't have to be related to what A-level subjects you enjoy. I enjoy my subjects, but I wouldn't want to do them as a job. After all, they only exist in academia.

    Although I have finished the A levels, I have no idea what a career I want to do exactly. Something with sciences, maybe in combination with technology. I am in two minds about doing, as if I am a leaf on the water surface which is drifting on a river.

    I always thought I wanted to get into politics or journalism, I definitely want to do something in media. But with being a politician there's just so much negativity around it, no matter how much you try people will end up hating you. So I don't know, as much as I'd like to be known, I'd rather be unknown than be hated. So right now I'm clueless, good thing the university degree I applied for (PPE) gives me many choices. All I know is I want to do journalism, I'm not sure if I should then go down the route of politics or deeper into media, I'll let time decide that I guess

    Whatever interests you or what you choose ? Are you interested in politics as I mean they'd be things to constantly write articles on I mean I interested in politics but I would not write about it. I know there is a reputation of corrupt MPs etc but surely not everyone is and some MPs stand apart from others though
    How hard is it to get into Journalism and getting experience and what skills and areas can you write about?

    Yes. I have known exactly what job and career I want since I was 16 (in my last year of GCSE).

    I seem to be the exception here, though.

    Strategy/Strategic Analyst :love: It is not a common job at all, but it is exactly the job I dreamed and idolised as a child before I found out it actually existed when I was 16.
