    I'm currently studying the ib and applied for biomed at Warwick however I've been struggling with chemistry so was advised to reconsider what I want to do so I considered transferring to law. However I read that with law it's best to do it at Oxbridge or a high London uni for job prospects. Then I considered PPE but would I struggle with the maths if I'm not a budding mathematician? Or should I just continue with biomed and see where I go from there? Please help thank you

    You don't really need chem for biomed (just basic chem) and may never use it again so don't let that phase you. Oxbridge is not the be all and end all even for law. Yes you will need math for PPE but again not at a very high level so just pick what interests you depending on what kind of career you want.

    What do you mean by basic chem? And I do love biology but the prospect of working a lab for the rest of my life is not one that excites me. Concerning law, I am string in essay writing yet I have heard it is very dull and jobs are decreasing in this sector and is why being an oxbrideg student is ideal and concerning ppe I am also strong in humanities. However are you sure the maths would be too much for me who has never done economics even if I am not good at maths. I am really not sure what to do. I was considering redoing sixth form with better subjects for me to apply for law at Oxbridge or better London unis, do you think this is a good idea?

    I did biochem which has a lot of chem but the biomeds I've taught are generally only required to be able to do basic calculations around things like molarity and concentrations. However if you don't want to be in the lab then why do biomed? The degree itself involves a lot of lab work. A law degree doesn't lead to jobs as a lawyer and PPE is also an academic course with no specific career path so again just pick what interests you and then work out which direction you want to go in. Just gaining a degree will equip you with transferable skills which you can take into lots of things.

    It's not that I don't enjoy lab work however I am not sure that I want to spend the whole of my life in a lab. What kind of jobs could I get if I studied law, as I'm considering doing it at Warwick university and which out of the three do you believe will give me the best job prospects (law , ppe or biomed).
