    I am currently doing my A-Levels and deciding what i want to do at uni.
    The thing is, i have no clue. :confused:
    I have taken Maths, Sciences and Economics.
    I have had a look on the internet and in some career books but still no idea. :/
    Is there a good resources out there i could use that will help me, or has anyone got any ideas?

    You could try the Stamford test on the UCAS site: http://ucas.com/students/choosingcou...e/stamfordtest which can help you find the sort of courses that would interest you, or try and find careers tests online which may help you think about what you might like to go into as a career, thus meaning you can work out the route through uni that will take you there. Connexions, or your college's advisors if you do not have this service near you, would also be something to consider using. Tell them about your worries and they may be able to give your some tests to find what you like doing, or just advise you on where to look for help deciding.

    Think about why you chose your subjects, is there something that you wanted to go into eventually, or did you do them as you just had to pick something? Do you have a life goal to be in a certain profession? Think about what you may want to do and go and do some work experience if you can, to see if it is for you. Also, book some uni open days and go and look at the range of courses. Some will sound interesting to you and you can go from there. There are other routes to look into too, such as apprenticeships, so you may not need to go to uni at all. There is no point applying until you are sure what you want to do, as otherwise you may well hate it and drop out, or just be unhappy.

    If you are really not sure then maybe think about a gap year or two where you can do something else before you have to make a decision. Sorry I could not help much, but good luck!
