      I would recommend that you try and gain as much experience work shadowing different scientists to see the kind of roles you could work in. When I was at school I hated Chemistry, but in my job I use it every day! I think if i had a greater appreciation for how the sciences are applied it would have helped me to identify a career path much earlier.
