umm..what matters now is the scholarship i guess.
yeah,i know it's really hard to secure a scholarship now.but i'm just scared i'm gonna regret it later.
I didn't want to opt for Medicine neither, and I was in your shoes (except that I was interested in Electrical Engineering when I was in lower secondary). I soon get to know about Actuarial Science and wanted to pursue it, got the luxurious BNM scholarship and I'm on my way to realising my dream now!
I love maths a lot too, and I never knew anything in detail about actuarial syllabus. Banking and Finance is a wide field and even if you don't know anything about it, you can pick up the knowledge anytime you want. Sooner when you go into college life, you might get to know where your true interest lies.
Like me, I was so passionate of going into actuarial science due to its tough challenge of passing its professional exams. But just in a few months time, I got to know about financial engineering or mathematical/quantitative/computational finance and realised this course is very interesting too! Very mathematical intensive.
Regardless of degree you're going to study, most important thing would be finding your own interest. Doing the job of your interest is better than doing a job solely for its financial reward. Explore more about courses that might interest you and decide whether you will enjoy doing it or not. I don't know much about banking and finance so I couldn't give any decent advices on it.
But all in all, make the wise decision! Google up anything that might interest you and make decision!

frostbyte13, quantitative finance is not something easy. It's even harder than actuarial science to a certain extent, more quantitative based.
