Currently I have just completed my AS levels and have just begun studying for my A2 (second year of the course) in order to complete my A levels. I have been studying Biology, Chemistry, Maths, ICT and general studies. I think i did relatively well in mathematics, ICT and biology, though i think i really messed up the organic chemistry module and am expecting to resit it. In the next few months i will be considering my future university course and am of course, very confused as of what to do. At the moment i feel very interested in mathematics/physics, but as i haven't taken physics at A level I will not be able to access the mathematics/physics joint degree. Perhaps i will take a one year foundation course with view to doing math/physics joint the following year, though this adds another year to my university study, also adding extra time/money issues. Also, my grades aren't too mediocre so I feel doing a foundation year may be a slight insult to my (relatively decent) intelligence and the hard work i've done over the past year. As stated above, I am interested in math. But does a pure math degree really equip you for anything in a future career not focused on teaching? In others posts i've just seen that a pure maths degree mainly helps in teaching and showing your employer you can solve problems. I want to eventually become a researcher in the sciences, i will not be able to achieve this in pure math. Then there is the option of career combining biology and chemistry. I find them interesting though not quite as interesting as math(which i do)/physics(which i don't). Can anyone suggest to me of any interesting careers/areas which are in demand using those two? I just wish i could turn back the clock and do physics instead of ICT or chemistry..... I don't want to end up in a course or career I don't find engaging and interesting. I respect the obviously plentiful intelligence of the members of this board, can anyone offer any opinions as to what is in demand and what options i should consider taking? Sorry to post it in this forum, i didn't see a more 'general' one and I wanted to post this where i could perhaps obtain some opinion from very educated people. Thanks for any advice.
