Look,I need help.Basically my parents want me to be a doctor and study medicine. I am in Year 7 and I am more interested in English Literature,Business and Management. My worst subject is science and I don't know how to let them know I don't want to become a doctor.My friends say once my parents see my GCSE results they will realise science isn't for me.However I know that I need them to know now.Any ideas on how to break it out to them?

Just tell them that you don't want to pursue a medicine degree as it is not for you. Say you are not very good at science and say what you are good at and what you are thinking of going into in the future.

That happens in every family so don't worry. You are only year7 so your family puts a pressure on you (idk why but 98% parents do it). When you will be year9/10 they will think more carefully about your choices. Additionally, i would like to advise you that never do any course that you are not interested to. Because you can be really successful in your future job that you really love it, not because of money but because of you really see yourself there. On the other hand, normally people choose hundreds of different courses that they wanna study and they change their mind every year. So during 4 year school time think carefully and analyse yourself - where do you see yourself, in which part of the subject you feel more confident etc.
