    Just finished my AS exams, just gone back to start my A Level courses! I took History, English, Maths and Chemistry, but considering dropping History (I absolutely hate one of the topics we're studying!)

    Anyway, I have no idea what to do at University, and with teachers encouraging us to start drafting personal statements now I'm starting to panic a bit :')

    I've considered a career in law, but I also really enjoy maths! Any suggestions welcomed

    Thank youuuu!

    this isn't really something anyone can decide but yourself! have you got a flare for anything? or have any career ideas been sticking out to you for a while, or any you keep going back to?
    I'd been changing my mind since year 10, but always kept going back to teaching, therefore I'm starting an English degree in September to start me off!
    It has to be something you enjoy, or you'll hate uni and regret it!

    If you enjoy maths then do that? You can always do a law conversion course after it.

    With those A levels Law is a good subject. Maths may be a bit difficult as a lot of universities ask for Further Maths as well. Could you maybe do this in your A2 year?

    Other uni courses you could do:
    English
    Chemistry
    Archaeology
    Anthropology
    Architecture
    International Relations
    Land Economy
    Sociology
    Politics
    Linguistics
    Philosophy
    Theology
    Film Studies
    History (yup, most don't require the A level)
    History of Art
    Ancient History
    Psychology
    Even some medicine courses!

    Hey there fellow Welshie!

    If you're good at chemistry then I'd seriously recommend Chemical Engineering. It's very maths and chemistry based, and it's such a good degree. Bare in mind that it will be quite difficult though.

    Pob lwc!
