    Pretty much anything!!! If you wanted stay working within science though apparently there are good research and funding opportunities in the US which are highly competitive but worth getting, and an Oxford degree is very highly respected over there. However, don't just do something because it pays well.

    PS When you say 'masters' do you mean an MPhil or just an undergraduate Oxford masters???

    Yes. Seven years after you matriculate you can pay the university £20 and 'buy' a masters. Your BA becomes updated to MA (Oxon).

    you get a masters if you do the 4 year MPhys course. If you do a 3 year course (which almost nobody does) you get a BSc

    I heard that city work will be very good, with your skills at analysing random, chaotic data and looking for hidden patterns among the stock market.

    Trust me. Wait until your GCSEs results.


    BTW, did you get like 10A*s at GCSE?
    What were your GCSE grades? Any Top Candidate Awards in Maths or Physics?

    I Got 6 A Stars And 4 A's At Gcse. I Think I Am Capable Of Getting Into Oxford To Do Physics, Considering There Is Like A 48% Success Ratio. I Am Also Not A Geek Or A Nurd And I Have A Personality, So That, Along With My Intelligence And Interest To Do Physics Will Stand Me In Good Stead.

    They are looking for geeks, not people with a social life or a personality. Geeks are more likely to concentrate on their work and get the department high scores. Think about that babyguy...wot did u get for AS level and what were you module scores?

    i didnt say i had a social life, i just said that i dont appear as a geek, but i do work very hard and my social life isnt that much. i get very good grades i beleive, and my intelligence and hard work reflect that. i dont go out and get pissed every night, its very occassional, if at all. i have some friends, but i do work ahrd. i got double award A star for science, and my physics percentage for GCSE was the highest in the whole year. and that was in a top comprehensive school. and if i get into oxford which i think i will do, there is no reason why i cant get a first class in masters.

    it would be a terrible waste of physics skills to end up in the city money-grubbing after graduation. a true scientist goes into research!

    lol the UN has hardly any cash (especially as the US is so reticient about paying its dues to it). youd be better off bribing microsoft; say youll turn your death-ray on bill gates house or something in blackmail lol
