Main Question or Discussion Point
In the past few months I've really began to like physics. In the past year, I was sure I was going to become an English teacher/translator or something language related but in the light of the last physics lessons we learned (my class doesn't have physics as a subject anymore) I decided that I would prefer becoming a physics teacher (or a scientist!). However, there are a few problems. At math, I'm pretty knowledgeable on the basic stuff (also no more maths for my class for the next 1 and a half year) and I'm familiar with the basic principles of physics, but before choosing which University I'm going to enroll at and which course, I have 1 and a half year (my knowledge might decrease, but I'm thinking of homeschooling myself not to forget them). I have come down to two options (if I decide for physics): general physics (then becoming a teacher) or experimental and theoretical physics (then getting a Phd, becoming a scientist). Now, I'm worried that this basic stuff will be enough to enable me to enroll at one of those courses, but also that it won't be enough for me to successfully finish one of them. So, my question would be: Should I go for general or e&t physics? Remember that I have basic understandings of both and both seem equally interesting to me (ok... maybe QM a bit more interesting).
