    Hey guys,
    I've been feeling really depressed recently as I do not know what I want to study at uni. I am doing bio maths and chem and I enjoy them all to some extent. However I'm not sure what degree I can do which gives me high chances of getting a job and good pay. The only degree I could think of is medicine which I wouldn't mind doing. I got my mocks back and got 2 bs in the sciences but I screwed maths up like c d grade?
    What do you think I should do?

    What drives you money or passion?

    Money --> medicine

    High chances of getting a job?

    Chemical Engineering? No physics required but maths and chemistry is. Job prospects are one of the best in the country (like every engineering discipline) in almost all fields and sectors.

    Passion?

    Tell me your interests, hobbies and anything you feel strongly about (politically, egg like climate change).

    Don't feel pressured to get a degree in a subject that you think will pay good in a career afterwards. Only study something that you're passionate about and you'll know you'll enjoy. You don't want to end up dropping out of Uni half way through the course you don't enjoy it or there's too much pressure on you. Isn't there something that you're really passionate about?

    Ever since I was 12 I knew I wanted to study Japanese at uni, I'm so passionate about the modern, underground and traditional cultures of Japan. I've been studying art and spent 2 years in college specalising in art and design, but here I am about to study at UCLan for a degree in TESOL and Japanese this September. I love art, ever since I was a kid, but my passion really has always stayed with Japanese language and culture.

    have you actually read into any academic fields though? surely there's one which interests you?

    read lots of books, articles and even watch YouTube videos of that inspires you.
