    How nice it is to find a forum dedicated to science on the internet!

    I am 19 years old and have been scientifically interested all my life long, especially in natural sciences.

    I'm still in high-school and still pondering over what "science" I will study after school

    I hope I may get a better impression on the world of science by reading and writing in here.

    Good luck. Anything you're leaning towards at all?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thank you silkwork

    I'm quite undecided between actually researching in science (especially human nature, evolutionary anthropology, neuroscience), and being a kind of mediator between science and the people trying to solve ethical questions. The latter is quite inspired by a kind of vocation...

    I could likely do both at the same time, but I'm not sure about which direction I would need to step into when it comes to university.

    Here, you're young so I'll give you some advice since you don't know what to do. Stick as fundamental as possible, math physics and chemistry. Overdose. Everything is generalized from these and everything is physics, so studying these will only help you when you make a decision where you want to go and it will make you stronger.

    I think medicine is nice topic. Resulting in a profession as a researcher in medical sciences, doctor or surging you will definitely come across the fine line of ethical acceptable and scientific progress.

    im at the exact same oint as you , except im consideribly younger than you, but the same point non the less.

    im doing *hopefully i won't change my mind by july* a science degree undenominated. in first year you chose 4 core subjects, it varys, but the 4 im goingto chose are chemistry, maths (no choice in this collage) biology and computer science( or phyics...)

    then in second year you begin to becoem more specilised, my sister is doing chemistry, pharmocolgy and microbiology, other choices include botanny, zoology biotecnology ect.. and maths

    then in third year you do two and either 1 more, or two halfs, not sure how that works but you make up anyways,
    then in 4th final year you get to do one thing, eg pharmacology

    i could go straight to pharmocolagy or biotecnology, ect but i am liek you, i don't know yet.
    i'll be 17 this july, im young, most of the others are 18 or 19, but for some reason tere are alot like me this year!
    Stumble on through life.
    Feel free to correct any false information, which unknown to me, may be included in my posts. (also - let this be a disclaimer)
