    I've done GCSE history, half of AS ancient history (but then dropped out) and am currently doing philosophy AS. I've loved all 3 and can say that I'm a really academic person. I love reading and researching, and when I love a study topic so much I tell my friends and family all about it. This makes me think a teaching career is perfect for me. But the problem is: I really don't know.

    My plan was to do a law apprenticeship because then I don't have debt and I am interested in law, but I don't know if that career is for me. I study BTEC single law now, I'm liking it.

    Now I'm thinking shall I do the History and Philosophy combined degree, then afterwards either do cilex graduate fast track to become a lawyer or do PGCE to become a teacher.

    But then I think that's so much debt and I have studied history at GCSE and I'm studying philosophy now. So basically I have done these subjects before so is it all really necessary?
    I dunno what to do. Apprenticeship or hisphilo degree?

    Decide then if you want to surround yourself with screaming under 10s or petulant hormonal teenagers all day. The shorter days and long holidays are a bonus
    Or if you prefer being an ambulance chaser on no win no fee or defending no hopers, thieves, drink drivers , drug addicts and prostitutes in a police station 24/7
