Engineering or medicine?
I've sort of come to a crossroad between these two. I was just wondering the pros and cons of both of these and what both courses are like? Also which one would be better for getting a job in 5 to 9 years? I'm in year 11 now and I need to make my A level choices, so if I choose medicine I'll do maths, biology, chemistry and physics, and if I choose engineering I'll do maths, further maths, physics and chemistry. I'm kinda geared towards medicine at the moment because I'd quite like to help people. Thanks

Well seeing as you can't decide between two completely different subjects, you probably don't have the real passion to do medicine, so i would on the face of it do engineering, as you need to be really passionate and enthusiastic to get a place at any medical school... More
