    I'll be going into A2 this September, and I have no idea what I want to do in the future (what degree). So do people have past experiences that may help me?
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Is there anything at all you are particularly interested in?

    And I'd like to add that you don't need to go to university, if there is nothing in particular you want to do, it may be better to do an alternative to university

    Well, Politics and Law. Economics too, to an extent.

    No of course not, looking into apprenticeships and interns too

    Have you got any prospectuses to look at the differences between different courses, see which you prefer?

    A few Universities (I think mostly Russell Group) offer Politics Philosophy and Economics degrees, or something similar. They seem to synergise with your interests, and they're generally pretty prestigious. Are they at all interesting to you?

    How are you finding maths? Economics at uni contains quite a bit of it I'm told.

    Law in the UK is pretty nice, though it's a vey expensive investment. Economics is safer if you think about going abroad later on.

    Maths is ok, although it is tough. Its good when I understand the concepts, otherwise I dread going into lessons. Ive looked into Economics, and yeah it has a lot of AS maths in it

    Law is intense, and has a lot of competition, but I enjoy it. Im not sure whether to go into law or not :|
