I'm a Year 12 student, currently studying Biology Psychology and Economics A-levels, trying to decide what to study at university. I enjoy psychology a lot and have found one path to go down: clinical psychology. I know I would need to do a Psychology degree and then a post-graduate clinical psychology course after that.On the other hand, outside of school I attend a drama group at my local theatre and I love to perform there in all of the productions including both plays and musicals. This path would take me to drama school to get a BA in Acting (looking at Guildhall, Mountview etc).I feel that if I choose the psychology route, I will regret not attempting the acting route. I also feel that if I follow the acting route and am struggling to find work, I'll regret not studying psychology.Does anyone have any ideas or advice on what I should do?

Neither is likely to lead to a job, but an Acting degree is certain not to lead to one. Which would you rather spend about £50,000 on?

I'd do the one you most want to, which seems to be the Acting one from your post.
