Thank you very much for your advice, it was quite comprehensive. Actually, I think I've read your post before, and it was from there that I initially questioned taking medical science or not. I've decided to keep nursing as my top choice, and my parents are quite fine with it after I had talked to them, but honestly I'm pretty sure they're frustrated by it mainly because they think that taking nursing was a sudden decision (even though it was an option that I had kept since yr 10). Frankly rather than medical science they wish for me to do a degree that's finance related but I have no interest in that so... Oh, I attended the interview and I agree, it really was a valuable experience and helped me figure out where I was lacking Unfortunately my performance wasn't that great, so I mainly just feel sorry towards my parents after having spent so much money on sending me to workshops and the like. However I'd like to think of this as a valuable lesson, so hopefully I'll be able to perform better next time ^^ And as Mana had mentioned that you are a nurse, could you possibly give me some insights into what the course (and the job) entails? No one else in my family had been a doctor, and only a very distant relative had been a nurse so I don't actually have a great idea of what it is like (other than looking at the course and searching things online). Like what parts what you consider most difficult etc?
