    If you're interested in maths (which it looks like you are!) a degree in mathematical sciences would give you a lot of options for more specialized study in the future without being too vocational now.

    Couldn't agree more! This is key!

    If you're unsure, go to open days and visit the departments of courses you are potentially interested in, go to taster course days, read about the subjects, read up on possible careers from these subjects, weigh up your strengths, weaknesses and most importantly INTERESTS. Take the Stamford test or even the one that costs £25. Just FIND OUT EVERYTHING YOU CAN.

    I didn't do enough and ended up changing my mind not so long ago so do everything you can

    A little thing called research exists.

    You can supplement that with what you WANT to do.

    Don't go to uni if you're asking other people what you should be studying.

    Maths?
    Physics
    Economics?
    Engineering?

    All well-paying and maths-based (which seems to be where your interests lie).
