    After finishing a year of AS, its time I began deciding what I want to do come the end of A2, so what exactly I want to study at Uni or if I even want to go Uni.

    As a student who takes History, Mathematics & statistics, Physics and Chemistry, the options for me are so open I am totally overwhelmed by the broadness of courses I could go into.

    Bare in mind that I now detest Physics with a passion and have no reason to go into a career with it, what options are there for me that would suit my abilities?

    Could anyone currently doing a course in a science related subject (relevant to my current AS subjects) offer me any suggestions in what field I should go into, and what Uni's are ideal for the best education.

    I myself had in mind that I could go into anything such as Chemical engineering, pharmaceuticals etc, but this seems unrealisitic now after realising how difficult these careers are.

    I do apologise if its unclear what I'm asking for, but any help is appreciated thank you!

    No-one can tall you what you want to do, or even what you should do. It's your choice. Have you spoken to a careers advisor at your school or college?

    That being said, the obvious degrees (should you choose to take a degree) for you would be science related. The biggest one would be engineering, of which there are obviously many kinds. You could go into straight Chemistry if you like Chemistry, or a Chemistry-related course like Medical Science or Pharmacology. You also have the option of going into something like Robotics or Computer Science, using your Physics and Maths. If you don't know, you could even take Natural Sciences so you can explore a range of options within the field of science.

    If it comes to applications and you aren't sure, DON'T APPLY. University is expensive and the last thing you want is to get into over £27,000 of debt for something you don't even enjoy. You can always take a gap year and travel or work, then apply when you know more - or not go to university at all. Plenty of people don't.

    As to what universities are best, that depends on what qualities you want from a university and what you want to study. Each university has different strengths and weaknesses and suits a different person.
