    I am in my first year of A levels and I am trying to find a career path to work towards as I always have a much higher work ethic when I work towards a goal. My A level choices are Biology, Chemistry and History, any interesting career paths for me? Would any of these A levels help me in a career where they are not directly needed, say if I went into a different field than these options? Or any really interesting courses that any of you have enjoyed? And what grades would be needed? TIA x

    Well it depends how well you're doing, but you can study law with any subjects at all. You just need the grades.

    I believe I’ve got the potential to do quite well in them, I hadn’t considered law so thank you

    Medicine and Dentistry are pretty keen on applicants having Mathematics.

    Law and the sciences perhaps?
    Yes I thought medicine would require maths, or at least would prefer it and seeing how many people go for that degree I wasn’t sure how much of a chance I stood.

    Could you go into some more detail on sciences? I think that’s where I would like to be heading but I’m unsure on what paths there are apart from the more obvious ones like the medicine and veterinary

    My mum lectures in Dentistry, it is very competitive and Maths/FM is desirable.

    Biochemistry
    Bio-medical science.
    Biology
    Chemistry

    There is a huge list, my brother is doing Biomed and then a graduate application for medicine.
    Thank you, that is really helpful
