I keep changing my mind on what I would like to do when I leave school. I'm in year 11, so I know university is a long way off but I can't stop thinking about it. It' exciting but scary.

I would like to be a journalist but I have recently been interested in being a child counsellor/psychologist or something to do with nutrition. In fact, nutrition REALLY appeals to me, but I would definitely NOT be able to cope with doing biology or chemistry at A-Level.

I know there are courses where they don't require science, but they are courses that only require 5 GCSES grade A*-C and 2 A-Levels which doesn't appeal to me as it just doesn't seem very good. I know that sounds rude of me, but I am aiming for more than that and it would feel like hard work was going to waste.

Does anyone have any advice? I have no idea what I want to do anymore to be honest. What are some good nutrition careers? I wish there was like a food journalist or something, lol.

I'm sure there are NVQs on nutrition. Vocations are a nice alternative to the stress of sitting an exam.

I have a friend who went into nutrition with triple health and social care. I'm doing applied science, single health and psychology and want to go into nutrition...

She is at Manchester Metropolitan, but you can do it at:
Chester, Edge Hill, Coventry, Hertfordshire, Leeds Beckett too

Check on UCAS too. It's useful...

Pick subjects you'll most likely get the best grades in.
