    I don't know whether to do an economics or chemistry degree.

    Which one is more beneficial and can open more doors??

    I have no idea what I want to do as a job, I'm as equally as good in both of them and wouldn't mind doing either.

    HELP!!!

    Eco is better salary-wise (on average) - the more lucrative chemistry jobs will require a PhD.

    If you're good at maths/science then engineering gives you lots of options.

    Which do you enjoy more and what sort of jobs do you want to do? There are a lot of jobs you could get with both but some sectors you would be closed off to if you did one or the other, chemistry has a greater number of specialist areas I think but economics would be better for some specific jobs probably. What are your a-levels?

    I don't know a specific job that I would like to do, but i would love a fast pace job, something to keep me on my toes, a job which also requires travelling etc and obviously one with good money

    Personally I think chemistry is way cooler and more interesting with plenty of different pathways you can go down in the degree.
