I'm going to go straight to the point, I LOVE astrophysics, I've been interested in astrophysics for quite a few years now and I'm thinking of doing my EPQ on astrophysics as well. This was until my parents pointed out that employability for an astrophysics degree(I want to do masters) is not...bad but hard. The fact is that I understand them and I kind of like engineering but I have more passion for astrophysics. The factors I really had to consider was: -Salary -Employment Opportunities - I don't wan't to move to the other side of the galaxy for a job -If I do an astrophysics degree how likely is it that I will get a job IN astrophysics and not finance or something I would appreciate any advice on this matter. Just for more information, I'm in year 12 doing physics, maths, further maths and chemistry and hoping for 2 A*s and 2 A's.
