    I’ve applied for natural sciences because I like science and can’t really think of anything I want to do instead.

    I had loads of options but I’m not sure on any, mainly medicine, natural sciences and accounting.

    What are the career prospects with natural sciences like. I’ve heard it’s hard, so is it worthwhile?

    I know a lot of people use skills from natural sciences to get jobs in business and finance, but is this hard to get into as you are competing with people with degrees in economics/ business/ accounting etc.? I’m not really sure I want to go into science at the end of my degree, but it leaves my options open more than doing an accounting degree. At least with natsci, I could go into teaching etc. but accounting is leading me to become an accountant at the end for sure.

    WILL IT BE HARD FOR ME TO GET A WELL PAID JOB?

    I am so bad at making decisions and so I’m not sure whether to just go with it. Wish I was good at making decisions and stopped overthinking every decision.

    I dont know really. I think it depends on the uni. At cambridge its more academic. So although you go in doing natsci you come out wit the equivalent of a degree in the subject for example.

    You're not gonna struggle with any science based degree because it shows a lot of good skills.
