    I'm always so indecisive about everything. When I was choosing my AS subjects, I couldn't decide what I wanted to do, so I chose some random subjects which allowed my choices to stay open (which didn't really help, ironically). Then I started to think about what I wanted to study at univeristy but just didn't know what to study, and jumped around between different things like law, finance, french(?)...now I don't know whether to drop English or History next year, and I'm not sure what uni to go to....help me

    Honestly, I'm exactly the same! I changed my mind several times on what degree I wanted to apply for, eventually stuck to one, applied, got all offers, and then decided I didn't want to do it and so emailed my firm choice asking to change to a degree I'd previously considered :lol: but I've finally stuck to this and know I'll be happy, it just takes time. I recommend giving a lot of thought into your options and not rushing for the sake of making a decision you may regret

    I would over the summer get some work experience in relivent sectors, ie ask a local accountancy firm for WE. Then for what you enjoy in the WE tailor your subjects and Uni courses around that.

    Unfortunately all the places I applied to this year turned me down

      It is! Thankfully not, I literally just emailed the uni, they looked at my application and said it was fine to swap
