    So... I have to pick my A levels to go to hills road next year and I don't know what I want to do in the future. Sure, I want to go to Cambridge University preferably but I don't know what job would suit me. I've considered becoming a lawyer for a while so I want to keep that option open. Luckily there are no real required subjects for doing Law at uni except an essay-based subject helps for obvious reasons hence wanting to take English but also want to take it because I love it...

    However, I have also increasingly considered going into a scientific job of some sorts in the future and medicine crossed my mind a few times but I don't find chemistry particularly enjoyable (though I quite like biology) and I don't think I'd have enough patience to be in university for so long. I do find medicine intriguing however and therefore perhaps something in that sort of area could interest me.

    My main concerns are I don't know if I'm limiting my options because if I, for example, wanted to take Natural Sciences at uni not having all three of my options as sciences would limit my chances drastically even though the minimum requirement is technically two.

    The reason I want to take maths is simple, it is just something I am good at and fairly enjoy when I solve problems.

    So to summarise:

    I don't know what careers/degrees would interest me

    I don't want these options to limit me and

    I don't know well of a combination these A levels are
