Degree(s) going to waste Watch
I graduated from a master's degree last summer. The course was quite demanding and I had very little time off. Before that I did physics and graduated with a first.
I feel like a failure because I have (so far) not been able to get anywhere. I just can't get a job and half of the time it seems like I studied the wrong subjects. Graduate schemes seemingly hate me.
When I look back, I must have done somewhere in the region of 50 exams across both degrees. Add in assignments, lab work, miscellaneous assessments and presentations and it was a colossal amount of work and effort.
I'm not looking for advice, I was just wondering if anyone can relate? I feel like I have let myself and my parents down. All of that time and effort I spent studying for GCSEs, A-levels, BSc, MSc.
I have an interview with a medical school next month. It is something completely different to my previous studies but I cannot see any solution other than to re-train in a career.

If you want some advice anyway
Check if you can access the careers service at your last uni - quite usual for them to support you for years after finishing your course
There's high demand for physics teachers and they get a training bursary/scholarship
