I just cant decide what to studyWatch
Having finished my AS exams I have found myself in a situation where I have to make a decision upon what to study at university. Like many, I have no clue on what subjects I want to do in university and therefore am willing to try something new. Could all you specialists out there advise me and help me make the correct choice. I want to do something sensible at university though, something which would allow me to obtain a good job in the field, therefore I do not wish to study Celtic studies for example. I also do not want to do a law conversion, and I currently feel that unless I am going to find something I am extremely eager to do I will do Law. Could you guys also recommend a few suitable universities for me.
Here is all about me:
I am currently studying A-levels, I have completed my exams in the following subjects: Economics, Mathematics, French, English Literature. A year ago I have also done an AS Russian exam (obtaining full UMS) and this year I did an A2 in it. I was predicted As in all of them, but am really looking to obtain very high UMS in all of them but English Literature.
I got 7 A*s and 3 As on IGCSEs.
Could you guys please help me decide upon what I want!?
P.S. Although I am not bad at it I don''t enjoy maths.
Start by reading this : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...sing_a_Subject
Then go to some University Open Days in July and/or September.
The English and French open you upto English and language related degrees
and Maths and Economics open you upto a range of Maths and Economic related things.
Think really carefully about what you've enjoyed doing the most, and definitely try and decide following results day before you go back to school. If you really have no clue take a gap year so when you get full a level results you can decide.
* Do a subject you hate because 'the pay is good' or 'my friends are doing it'
* Choose a subject just to make your family/teachers happy
* Rule out a joint degree
* Rush, you have plenty of time to decide
* Leave it till the last minute.
The best thing to do is to choose two options e.g. I want to do Economics OR English and start researching modules you would do, joint degrees if applicable, etc.
Without any knowledge of you apart from what you have said, I would say your languages sound like a strong point but if you don't want a related career you have to take this into account
