Hi guys. First off, I think it is important to say that I have just finished my AS exams and that I have started the A2 courses.
I am posting here because, even though I feel that I want to go to university as I enjoy studying and gaining knowledge, I have very little motivation to research into open days, courses, or even job prospects! I have been to a few open days now, mainly to high ranking universities, and looked at various courses, and even though I like the universities and courses, I don't feel motivated to take control of the application process and researching the universities further.
I do not really have any career path I would like to follow, and this coupled with the fact that I am not sure which subject to study, although I have narrowed it down to one of either history of mathematics, really is making me feel lost with the whole process.
Don't get me wrong, I am intellectual and very capable of achieving very good exam results, but anything else seems beyond me at the moment. What are your thoughts?
You need to decide what you want to do, the motivation usually comes after that because you know what you are aiming for. Well that's what it was like for me, I was lazy until I decided a degree/career path and now I know I need to work to get the grades, find a university and achieve what I want. I think that is the first step, but I guess it's personal preference :-)

I finished my degree still with no idea what I wanted to do, so don't worry about it, not having a goal specifically is as good a goal as any, better to ride the wave and stumble upon sometime you love then dedicate the rest of your life to something you don't really feel.
