Hi (sorry.. may be a long post!)
So currently I am in year 13 and studying the A levels Biology, Psychology and English Language. I have had, and still have no idea what I want to do at university even though it has been all I have thought about for the past two years. Every time I think I have finally decided on something, I feel like I am shutting so many doors on so many other options.
So far I have considered Biomedicine, Psychology, Psychology and neurology, medical imaging, physiotherapy, medicine with a preliminary year and also biological science. I am leaning towards biomedicine, but then comes the next issue: I love the idea of biomedicine, but every time I try to read around the subject I get confused and disheartened, especially as I have to decide on an EPQ topic and nothing from biomedicine feels interesting enough to independently research! I'm not sure whether it's because I am not interested in biomedicine, or because with the EPQ there are no guidelines and I find I go off on a tangent and overcomplicate things.
On top of all of this, I am being told to follow my heart's desires but I have no idea what that is. I find really strange things interesting like organising, matching colours, writing short stories, fixing things that people find irreparable, but no 'solid' interest like dancing, nature, gardening, fashion, etc. I have no idea what I like.
I have always liked drawing and got an A* in art GCSE but didn't pursue it, but I still love it and think that maybe this is what I should do. However, I would like a degree at university that is going to take me somewhere, and I am not sure how I would personally use art as I am not as talented as others.
Is there anyone that can give an outsider's opinion on my crisis and advise on what direction to take? Or maybe someone has done a degree after being as confused as I am?
