- i want to become a football player.... Yep. I know. I'm currently 17 however turning 18 this novemeber.
Im going to skip the part where i ask, Do you think i can make it.
I haven't asked questions on here before so bare with me.
Im going to be taking a gap year and hopefully getting offers from unis within london such as kcl, queens for biochemistry/ maybe neuroscience?
however i love business. i love science too, however only the learning part of science, me going out and working in a lab or doing research sounds boring to me.
dont get it twisted, i dont want to do a business management degree either, as on its own i do not believe it is worth it. if you want to get better a football, you dont read a book about it, you go out and actually play football, same with business, you dont read about how to make profit, you go out and do it.
I want a biochemistry with business management course. However there is only 3 unis offering it. Imperial AAA, kingston college and i believe edinbourgh.
My predictions are AAB, impieral won't even consider me, i am not going to move to scotland as i am defo wanting to stay in london, and kingston is honestly not the uni for me, also it is not highly regarded? maybe thats just my friends opinion idk?
My statement is tailored towards a biochem degree however in queens and kcl there literally nothing to do with business, I want degree level business knowledge, i know i just literally said a mangament degree was not very useful however having science combined with business is my complementray duo
during my gap year im planning to persue football by attending trials and 1 or 2 contacts i have in mind that may work but probably wont, go gym, go work, get my driving done
what do you lot think i should do? i usually always answer peoples question and try be positive, this is the one time im asking for help and wanting to see if what goes around comes around?
should i take my gap year and just apply for biochemistry? obvs if i do get AAA OR A*aa ill reapply to Imperial. if i do flop then i.e CCC what do i do then
Question is literally an essay with no strucutre, i apologise. What do you think i should do, any tips? thanks...
on a more personal note i realise why business combined with science is your complementary duo, but at the end of the day its very idealistic when you have another such major goal in mind (football). Not that you couldn't do it, im sure you could but imagine what you could do for your main goal if you used all the time on it.
Good luck mate
please give an insight on what you think as i give you more context- thanks
