    I have no idea what I want to do for uni! I did my Maths A-level a year early and got an A* then I also got 3As in my other AS levels (Chemistry, Physics, Biology). Next year I'm going to continue with all my subjects for A-level and also take up further maths. My main problem is I have no idea what do for my uni course and where. I was thinking/have been suggested Medicine/Maths/Engineering but I'm so unsure, all of them seem good but I don't feel passionate about any of them I think. Also feeling really stressed because if I'm going to apply for medicine or Oxbridge, I need to apply in October which is super soon! For medicine I need to do UKAT! Very very worried and confused! Help please!!!

    The only way you'll find out is if you do relevant work experience/get opinions off people working in that sector that know you well enough to make an informed decision as to whether you're going to enjoy a particular line of work.
    I recently did a week at an Engineering firm, before that at a diabetes laboratory. After talking to some engineers I realised that's the line of work I want to pursue, and am now getting some experience at an electronic engineering/computer science company.
    Get some work experience, and it's usually pretty clear from there on in...
    P.s. Congratulations on your results they're proper decent grades!

    I have done some work experience in Seagate in N. Ireland and I also worked in a hospital in Malawi for two days. They were both really good experiences but neither of them made me feel like they were 100% for me. I have been looking to get more experience in the hospitals but being out of school and trying to organise it through charter is proving impossible!
    Thank you though, that's really helpful
