I'd say start out by trying to think of what type of career you want afterwards and then which degree is going to help you towards that career

If you need to ask this question, ask yourself why you want to go to university and whether you actually need to.

i graduated with a degree in biology.

i recommend you look into Management, Accounting and Law. All boring subjects with good prospects. Also look into Liberal Arts which is offered by some unis.

thank you for your recommendations! I really appreciate your help. I was looking at business management but the field is very competitive. I do also enjoy biology but I like the genetic side of it. unfortunately most courses for genetics require chemistry and I have no taken in. my subjects are pretty random and broad, therefore it makes it difficult to choose a degree/course. thank you again.

I know I want a career in which i can progress and be promoted. i do not want to be stuck in the same position for life.

you 100% don't need chemistry to do a degree in genetics but i would advise against biology and psychology on the grounds of job prospects

What are you interested in? Have you done any work experience in professions that you liked?
You don't have to do a degree though don't forget! There are plenty of careers our there that you can get into without a degree.. have you thought of taking an apprenticeship for instance

in school I signed up to do work experiences in the business field, unfortunately due to the cornonavuris issue we were unable to do it. Maybe after I do some work experiences it may help me decide whether I want to go into the business field or not. Also, I go to an international school in Riyadh, it is very difficult to find and know of any apprenticeships, and I've never really looked into the idea. However I think university would be better fo me and I would like the experience as well. thank you very much for your help!

Many universities dont require Chemistry for Biology. Most require a second science and what that includes differs according to universities. Bristol, Cardiff, Lancaster, Leeds, Nottingham and York all accept Psychology as a 2nd science and some others like Bath and Exeter dont actually state what they classed as a 2nd sience so you need to contact them to find out. Some of the more medical type courses like Pharmacy require Chemistry due to the drug involvement. Have you though of Nursing or something like Cardiac or Respiratory Physiology. They might be interesting,

This list is Bristol's science list

Science-related subjects include Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Electronics, Environmental Sciences, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics, Psychology and Statistics
