    So I have only just started Year 12, but work experience is at the end of the year. I am currently studying biology, chemistry, maths, and history alongside completing an EPQ.

    Currently, I have no idea what I want to do in the future. All I know is that I am really aiming to go to a russel group uni, so with this in mind does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do based upon the A levels I am taking? I understand it is rather subjective but I am honestly drawing a blank.

    Any help will be extremley appreciated, thanks

    Ahh I'm having a similar dilemma! I came across your post because I was just searching for advice. I was going to take the same subjects as you but dropped history as I thought it was going to be too much and always thought of going down the medical route, I've been doing some reading and apparently bagging work experience at a care home is a good starting point 🤷🏼*♀️ my college has a similar set up regarding work experience but other places have said unis look for people who have been at a work experience placement for 6-18 months... apologise I haven't been helpful, just found it crazy there's someone feeling the same as me rn 😂 good luck sorting things out anyway! 😂
