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

    You could get into any nursing, paramedic or midwifery course, as you have chemistry (you don't need biology as long as you have chemistry instead). You could get into some pharmacy courses (the ones which don't ask for biology), as a lot ask for 2 sciences from maths, chemistry, physics and biology. You could get into geology, archaeology, engineering, etc.

    I am definitely thinking of going somewhere down the routes of engineering or a chemical based degree, but even then, the list is endless even then!

    Also, what degree of difficulty will these sort of courses entail? My largest worry is that I'll fail to meet the Uni step up from A-Levels, and will fall behind. Its tempting to go for an apprenticeship instead

    Go on a university's website (or a few uni's) and look at the undergraduate courses. Click on ones that sound like something you might be interested in and read the descriptions for what they involve and what careers you can get out of them. The entrance requirements will tell you a bit about how difficult the course might be, but once you have a more specific idea of what course you want to study it should be easier for people to tell you a bit about the difficulty & jump up from A levels

    DH26 advice is spot on. If you want to know about the difficulties go into the relevant forums on here- find people who have taken the courses. I'd say though overall remember your all the in the same boat and universities are usually very good at helping you bridge the gap.
