I'm in year 12 now, and it's becoming increasingly important to know what I want to do at university and as a career in general.

However I don't know what I want to do, or even how to find out. I've been told many times do what you want to do, but just about everything excites me in a different way, and I want to do it.

I decided that a good way to remedy this is just do work experience in many different places. But I think this plan has drawbacks in the fact the it still fails to show what a job is like and a lot require you to do them during term time, and as I'm doing 4 a levels, school time is extremely important and precious to me.


Is there a better way to find what is for me? Or have you got any recommendations of careers that are good around, I don't think achievement is too much of a problem or hardworking, I love to work and I'm willing to work extremely hard if it gets me where I want to be.

Education is a provision for old age.

Bio, chem, maths and further maths. I hope I can still possibly do engineering without physics namely chemical engineering.

you mentioned youre in year 12 and it's only the beginning of the year..why don't you drop one subject and do physics instead....in that way youre more likely to get into chemical engineering...you could get into medicines and dentistry with your subjects or maybe even actuary but to go into engineering im sure you need physics as well as another science and maths? idk but check out the entry requirements for chemical engineering at different universities you may be interested to get into

Medicine is also a viable option for me. And I think bio is more important for wannabe doctors, in terms of options for offers then physics is for chemical engineers(I think they are all about maths and physics, though physics is also very useful)

If you wanna do Medicine, physics is not needed whereas if you want to do chem eng, physics could be useful. I'm trying to do Mech eng without physics!

I take : Maths, Computer Science, Geography
