Accountancy? It depends whether you are prepared to do further studying after Uni.

I’m an accountant - feel free to PM me with any questions.

Do you like your job?
And what is it like working like does it make you exhausted and leaves you with no time? (Man some of those social media post criticising 9-5 makes me very scared and upset about the future)

I'm assuming you are worried about getting a 2:2, you still have plenty of time to change this

Plenty of things. Not all graduate schemes/jobs ask for a 2:1 so a 2:2 is not the end of the world. You must be clever being at Cambridge reading mathematics so you'll probably fly through the psychometric tests thrown at you.

Yes, I mostly like my job - as much as anyone can enjoy working!

Usually at the start of your career, you do more overtime to prove yourself and out yourself in line for any promotions etc. I generally only work overtime a couple of times a month when we are busy, but it does depend on the culture of your workplace TBH.

I do have time for leisure activities, but mainly at the weekends, rather than during the week.

Please feel free to ask any more questions.
