So if Math doesn't work out, idk what to do.

Help me come up with ideas on what to study <3

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Are you wanting to specifically major in Mathematics?

Something in the biology field, I guess? That seems to be common nowadays, but I personally hate life science...

If math doesn't work out for me, I might just focus on becoming a doctor (like the stereotypical Asian) or maybe even focus on music or writing (although I'm not particularly good at either of the two). My second choice would probably be something in the engineering field.

My problem is that my subjects at CAPE are Applied Math, Pure Math and Literatures in English.

I can't get into med or Bio with those.

Damn.

Based on your subjects, if you think that math won't work for you, I'd just go along with English. You can get a degree in English Lit or the like, but from what I see the pay isn't that good and the jobs seem uninteresting IMO, at least based on the overviews. You could also maybe try becoming an engineer or a programmer.

Its a true problem when you are young, you just can't grasp what it is that defines happiness for you. But that's the point of your career choice, or life path choice.

You must choose to do in life what makes you happy. Will studying a certain area lead to you being happy? Maybe better not to study and do something else. Maybe be a nomad, who knows.

You really shouldn't be perusing tertiary education if you do not have something you are passionate about to persue in it in the first place. Tertiary education requires an investment of 3-4 years of your life and significant financial considerations.

My recommendation is to get the best grades you can and think about what you really want to be doing for the next 10 years, if you are not sure then you need to make efforts to find out. These can come in the form of hobbies, clubs, societies, etc. keep yourself active and discover your passion - try stuff you wouldn't normally do. Your high school education is like a toolbox which gives you options and versatility to do what you find you want to do.

Do not make my mistake and waste 3 years perusing something I wasn't sure I was passionate about.
