    I need help.
    I have applied for Bangor University to study Health and social care. I need 280 points to get in which will be achievable for me. I felt as if I was rushed to make a decision on what I wanted to do as a course in university.
    i did health and social care as a subject in GCSEs and i enjoyed it so I thought doing it in University would be good.
    I regret doing this choice now, as I've researched the course a lot online and many people say that it's hard to find a job after you finish the degree as it's not a specific course (it's quite an open subject)
    People that have done health and social in University have said that they had to redo another course at university to get into a job. This was not my plan, I was planning on going to a jobs straight away after finish my degree.
    Another reason I chose to do Health and social care was because it didnt require any exams, and I thought it was perfect for me as I'm not the best at exams.
    Help, what do i do?

    You are about to commit yourself to c£50,000 worth of debt by taking a degree, so just like any other purchase you need to know its what you want.
    Its worth taking time over.

    This course does not sound like what you want.

    1. Withdraw.
    2. If you have no other offers, then do some research to find a course you would like. You could also wait for your results as you should be revising at the moment.
    3. Work out what interests you in terms of a career or to study. preferably both.

    Is a good site for looking at what you can use a degree for.
    4. Use UCAS Extra (if it hasnt closed) to apply to another uni if you have no offers or wait for clearing or take a gap year to identify and find the ideal course for you. Then go and enjoy studying for your degree.
