    Sucks so bad dont it?

    My parents are asking what would I like to do, Uni etc etc

    I really dont have the foggiest!!!

    Im studying, english lang, computing, communication studies, and psychology

    im in AS, and psychology is definately getting dropped, main reason why: I hate it with a passion.. I regret taking Computing, as I also hate this with a passion, if I could turn back the clock, I would've done both lang + lit.. So, I gather I can only drop one, and I guess it'll be psychology.

    I should be able to get a B in both English + Comms, but computing, lower grade.. I'm quite interested in English, journalism and the likes.

    But dont know if I want to go to Uni, I really dont have a clue what other choices I have.

    (a) Take a gap year so you can apply to UCAS having done your A Levels when you'll have a better idea of what you want to do
    (b) Just do an English degree if you like the subject - that way keeping your options open. The subject you do doesn't have to have any relevance to whatever you want to do - I'm a Geographer looking at a career in media/music/marketing...
