    if youre good at physics do chemical engineering, which is the highest paid

    if not then just google and see which one fits you best

    Tried programming? Software engineering can be great fun, it's where I want to go. I personally prefer back-end (Python, Java), but some like front-end too (HTML, JavaScript, CSS).

    I'm doing exactly the same but instead of product and design I'm doing business studies and I did half of a PE course with half dance. So hopefully I'm getting a GCSE out of that too as I taught the younger kids and had mocks.


    Well I want to get into the media world and be something radio DJ related or something along the lines of law or journalism. As my A levels are all related to my career

    It's never to late

    That's unfortunate. Maybe it was how you were taught, although it's probably just not your thing. You seem intelligent enough to have lots of potential choices. Ultimately, you need the right balance between enjoyment and salary. You're gonna spend an awful lot of time working in your life, as will most, so it's in your best interest to do something that won't make you depressed.

    I think it might have been the way we were taught as the majority of the class didnt enjoy it, and thanks for the advice. Is there any other job sectors you recommend as programming inst my thing xD.

    From my own experience, if you're not entirely sure what you want to do then study subjects you are good at and have a lot of practical uses. But whatever you do, don't go to uni unless you're 100% sure what you're going to study is what you want to be doing as a career for years to come!

    Well, the advice is passed on from wiser folk. Some sort of engineering does seem to be the safest way forward. Engineers are needed everywhere, and there's lots of different types.

    A university degree for most types of engineering. A bit of work-experience would be helpful on top of that.

    Boy you're asking me things I really don't know. There's different factors that apply:

    1) Where you are
    2) You're qualifications
    3) Type of engineering

    A junior C.S. graduate can hope to make at least £30k beginning salary in London from a good uni. It can quite easily go up to £60-80k for senior software engineers.

    I wouldn't have a clue about the other types, but a trend of high-salaries is for certain. Although, technically car mechanics are engineers. And while there is absolutely nothing wrong with the job, they're not known to be the most prestigious or high-paid careers.

    I'm 25 I have no idea what I want to do next week, let alone the rest of my life, I know people in their 40's who still have no idea what they want to do with their life, hell, my dad is retired and he has never known what he wanted to do...
