To have graduated with good grades shows a lot of hard work at UNI. But having good grades is only the beginning. You must be sure you know who you are and what you want. This is the part, I'm afraid, many people come to fail. Here's a classic question for you:

Suppose you have a carte blanche to work at any company you want. Can you name at least 2 companies you would want to work for, what role you will want to work at and what skills you have that will make you add immediate value to the company?

Sorry if this isn't what you are hoping to get, but it helps to know what your personal objectives are. I have seen too many people on here who just want to "graduate with a 2:1" and "work for a company"

own a medical lab.? I seriously doubt that, except you would plan operating with a med.lab scientists license...am a microbiologist too, but am considering switching fields to accounting most likely(knw u might call that lack of focus, but am still reali young and am brutally honest with meself, there are few lucrative jobs 4 us mcbists).

Not true and not possible only way to get that licence is through a BMLS not even with Msc and PhD
