Struggling to choose a uni courseWatch
I recently started y13 and am taking chemistry, biology and maths (and an AS in french over the two years). In my end of year y12 mocks I got A*, A, B respectively. The courses that I'm interested in are: biomedical sciences, biochemistry, pharmacology, pharmacy, biology, forensics. I currently enjoy chemistry the most, followed by biology then a large gap then maths. I feel like everyone else is miles ahead with their personal statement which I can't even start due to lack of course ideas, work experience and anything to put down. It feels like there's so much to look at and pressure to choose the correct course not only for my interests but future job opportunities. If anyone has experience in these subjects I'd love to hear about it and the possible job prospects but I'll continue to look into them too.
You can write a bit of your personal statement, explaining what you enjoy about chemistry and biology, have you done any extra reading to show this?
Try not to worry though, the main deadline to apply is January for next year, or you can always apply late (less chance of an offer but still a chance), or as the other user said you can take a gap year.
Hope this helps
If nothing is feeling like a good fit right now then honestly my best advice would be to take the pressure off and have a gap year to figure out what your really want to do.
Apart from forensics, those courses seem pretty similar to me, and in some universities there are common first years so you can transfer onto different programmes
Thank you both!!
