Pure science is Physics, Chemistry, Biology or Mathematics. You'll be studying either one of these as your major. I did some reading and on another forum some say most likely you are going to be a teacher. Whatmore under JPA, you'll have a government bond, so they say you're going to teach.

However, with a strong foundation in either branch, one can always involve in other things related (other than teaching). Maybe because it's board, you are actually quite flexible to involve in many things. Take Maths for example. You can involve in business, programming, banking, economics as well.

But as usual, google for more info on respective branches of Pure Science

Mathematics is not in the list this year. I emailed to JPA and they confirm this. A big blow for me too as I am thinking to do a mathematics degree.

BlubluTan was just asking for more details on pure science. Maybe she had already searched for it and would just like to have some indepth details like experiences from those who are studying pure science or from those who are currently working after graduating from this very field.

Not only teaching, actually those doing pure science can work in hospital/industrial labs and scientific jobs though they prefers master or phd. im doing a pure science degree in biology(microbiology and immunology) but plan to further studies.

From what I can tell, people who studies science usually are quite involved in research... (that's to answer your question on the future of holding a science degree)

Then again... a lot of things requires people who study science... so...

(sorry for not being too helpful)
