Career options after graduating in chemistry with BSc

Hi so I’m in a situation where i have no idea what i wanna do in the future and decided to come on here to get some advice or maybe guidance i guess…. I am currently going into my second year of Chemistry in university. My university offers a 4 year programme where my third year would be a placement year and the fourth year being a masters. But that would just be a masters in chemistry in general which I’m not sure i would like. I am currently unsure whether or not I should go with the programme or not as i am unsure of what to do in the future. I had 2 ideas. 1. Do a bachelors degree (3 year programme In Chemistry) and then do masters in pharmacology then become a patent attorney. OR 2. Do the 3 year programme get a bachelors in chemistry then try apply for dentistry for the 4 year course at kings college London or any other unis that has the 4 year programme.
I know, my ideas are very different from each other and i am currently very unsure of what i should do. Or even if there are other options for me. So i guess what I’m trying to ask is whether or not my ideas are good or if there are other options for me.

regardless of how similar or different your ideas are, you haven't suggested any reasons for wanting to do any of them and:
- going from pharmacology to patent attorney is incredible far reaching;
- dentistry is a tough and competitive course and

both of these choices require a lot of motivation which you've said you don't have yet

so i think you really need to take a step back and work out what you enjoy before you try and sell yourself on an image of a career you've not built up to properly first
Hi how are you finding the course? I'm unsure whether I should apply to chemistry or take a gap year and apply to dentistry
