    Hey. i was wondering if its a good idea if I go to open days during my AS year as I'm not 100% sure what I want to study. I'm thinking of Psychology, Child Nursing or Law. Psychology looks so interesting though. Would this be a good or bad idea? I don't want to go into A2 worrying about not getting offers or feeling rushed. Thanks

    Most people go to Open Days during the end of AS year and start of A2 year - Open Days tend to either be in June/July or September.

    This is the best advice, but visiting earlier may be helpful if you are really unsure about your choices.

    Open days are mostly held in June and again in Sept / Oct, so most people will go around the end of Y12 and the beginning of Y13. However, there are no restrictions on when you're allowed to go, and unis are more than happy for students to start researching well in advance by coming along to an open day.

    I actually found that going to open days helped me to decide on a subject. You'll find that at open days each course will put a talk on to allow applicants to find out more about that course at that uni. I found that going along to these helped me to better understand what was involved in each subject at that uni, which made it much easier to make an informed decision.
