Hello, I'm a sixteen-year-old Year 11 student in London who really wants to pursue Forensic Biology in the future. However, I'm aware that it is a very competitive field and I would like to gain as much experience as possible as a head start.
I missed the opportunity to gain work experience in Year 10 as I was in the process of transitioning to a new school, hence I missed my opportunity to do so then, but does anybody have an idea of the types of places I should be looking at to gain work experience? I'm not sure whether I should lean more towards looking at gaining work experience with the police or towards looking at gaining work experience in a medical setting, so I would greatly appreciate any advice.
I would like to mention that I have been diagnosed with high-functioning Autism, so I would prefer work experience at a relatively low-pressure and supportive environment, but if anyone can give me advice on how to tackle interviews or stressful work-related situations I would be indebted for that. Really, any help would be appreciated.
I think it may also be worthy to note that I will most likely be studying Psychology, History and Biology in sixth form, so if anyone does feel like I could open my options to other paths, those are some starting points.
Thank you for any help anyone is able to give me.
