im starting my gcses this september so there isnt anything i can change to do more appropriate ones of them, but does anyone have any ideas of what sorta A levels I need to be taking if I'm aiming to end up as Dr Proctor, the most famous palaeontologist ever to live?

turns out here in engrrrland theres lots you can do for archaeology...but that aint what i want, to become a palaeontologist you have to go through the whole archaeology thing and then specialise, which just seems like a waste of time. here you cant do a palaeontology degree or phd or course or anything similar, im not sure about america...either which way, does anyone know of any sites where i can get more information about this? palaeontology seems to have become quite a high profile job going by its portrayal in the movies but its been my dream since i was five.

bahness. I'm heading up to the NHM in london again in november/december time so I'm gonna launch myself at every clever palaentological person I see there and bombard them with questions, but for now, the net aint throwing up anything useful, and all the career books dont list palaeontology as a job. more bahness. so....any help appreciated!

    You dont seem to have mentioned geology at all in ur post, but alot of geology is palaeontology so u might want to look along those lines. Most uni's ask for sciencey a-levels along often along with geography and/or geology if u can take it (but the dergree course starts out from the basics so its not vital, but it might give u a better idea of what is going to be involved).
    Anyway, good luck with ur GCSE's :)

    Should still be time to change - assuming there's no timetable clash. If that's what you want :)
