I am planning to shift this semester.. I am a freshmen in BS Pharmacy and planning to shift to BS Psychology.. Due to grades and can't handle the pressure of the course. Although I am very much aware that being in medical field is very heavy. I also don't know what to do as my parents have high hopes in what course I am now, I don't know how to tell them that I failed the semester. Any advice about this? It would mean so much to me..

I am a freshman student at a university, studying BS Pharmacy, but due to one maybe two major, it landed me to a downfall. Also the thing is, my dad wanted the course BS Physical Therapy for me but I don't see myself in that. With that, we had a huge fight as he didn't see the potential of BS Pharmacy. How should I tell him that I failed to show myself that I can prove that BS Pharmacy was a right course.. Medical field courses, the one that I have been wishing since childhood. If not, then what??

What are the best and worst parts being a pharmacist?

My name is Anthony, I live in Arizona and I want to be a pharmacist but I am starting to consider that this isn’t the career that I want to pursue.

What volunteer areas or simple jobs in health care or pharmacy labs are there for a 15-year-old ?

I know there are probably not a lot of healthcare jobs for 15-year-olds, but anything related to healthcare, that does not need to be in a hospital or lab setting is okay. Finding job opportunities and volunteer areas to advance in the career I want to do. Thanks.

What career path should I follow based on the following information?

I'm an 18-year-old freshly out of high school. I'm not really sure about what I should pursue in college. My interests incline towards chemistry, biology, and psychology and I feel like I want to do something in the field of biology. But the thing is, in this field whatever I'm inclining toward seems like it wouldn't really help me with any placements and job opportunities, at least till I complete my master's in the course. Also, the earning also seems pretty low, specifically in India. I did think about going in the direction of med, but the competition seems way too high, and it feels very challenging so I'm not really sure about it. I was thinking about choosing between pharmacy and biotechnology, but in both cases, the placements and the opportunities seem to be lacking in India. What should I do? Note: this question was asked anonymously by a student
