So i'm a 10th graders (in year 11) and am under a lot of pressure to choose my career path. Before anyone attacks me and tells me i'm too young or whatever i should mention I go to a British school and the way the system is set up is so that we specialize from 9th grade onwards. Now is the time i need to choose my a level subjects (4 subjects ) and i'm really stuck as to what i should do. Most people in my year group know what they want to do with their lives or are at least aware of the careers that interest them. I have a good idea of what subjects i enjoy and which i really don't like. My most favourite subjects currently are maths, chemistry and biology. I can't stand english or economics (especially the former). Your probably asking yourself why the heck i'm even considering working in business if i don't like economics. Well, my dad is a senior financial analysts (chartered accountant) and has gone to sever lengths to make me understand that finance is not economics as economics is very theoretical. He's given me his books to look over and i've gone into his office to help out. None of it has appealed to me in the slightest, his books and the job he does seem extremely dull and repetitive. But since my dad is an accountant it's understandable that it's boring because many people tend to find it boring. So.. that's gotten me thinking. I've always grown up with the mentality that i'll become a banker because of my parents. I honestly doubt it's for me.
Do you think i'm jumping to conclusion about what working in finance is like? I'm also considering going into medicine/pharmacy/dentistry because i like the subjects i'd be required to study and it provides job stability unlike banking.
