In the final episode of The Hit List GCSE Surgery, Numi and her guests are asked questions from the audience:


1. **Educational Options for Aspiring Entrepreneurs**: We discuss the importance of tech skills and general business courses in today’s entrepreneurial landscape.

2. **Financial Support for Alternative Routes**: Learn about the support schemes available for apprenticeships or T levels based on household income, including travel expenses and equipment costs.

3. **Impact of Apprenticeship/T Level on University Prospects**: Discover how apprenticeships can lead directly into university courses without affecting admissions, and how an Access to Higher Education qualification can improve UCAS points within a year.

4. **STEM Career Paths Post-GCSEs**: Explore various post-GCSE options like A levels, T levels (technical), BTECs, college courses or apprenticeships suitable for STEM careers. 

5. **Career Guidance & College/University Visits**: Importance of career advisers at local colleges/schools providing guidance using online resources during hour-long appointments as well as visiting potential colleges/universities to gauge personal fit.

6. **Planning Your Future Career Path: Reverse Engineering Approach:** Consider reverse engineering your career path – decide what you want to do first then identify necessary qualifications along with alternative choices in case of unforeseen obstacles.

Remember that new job possibilities are emerging due to societal and technological growth which may not have existed when we began our education!
