So I am now going into year 13 at my sixth form and the application to uni is fast approaching. I am really confused of what i want to do... with all my experience etc nursing would be the safe option, but who likes safe? I really doubt I'd enjoy a career in nursing or the course itself, i've looked around some universities at the course and non of it sparks out at me to say that's what i want to do... which is guess is bad. I do have an interest in Psychology and Law, like a lot. And my mock grade in that subject was a B. But the sixth form I go to doesn't offer Law A level.
Cannot decide what to do at University? Watch

To start with, what are you studying? What are your strengths and what do you like (i.e. working with computers, meeting lots of different people, travelling...)? Chances are, there are career paths which suit you that aren't necessarily directly related to a specific course, so it's hard to identify.
If you're worried about not finding the right course then there's always the option of taking a year out of education. Get a job, and see what happens. You're not missing out on anything by delaying it a year. Doing a nursing course because you think you should, when you don't think you'll enjoy it, is largely going to be a waste. It's not a bad choice by any means, but if you're not interested in it then it will be tedious.

Many universities don't require Law A-level to study Law, because it's not widely offered (not that you mentioned it, but the same goes for Sociology too). I don't know your subjects, but if you take English Literature you should be okay for a Law degree.

I take it when you said "my mock grade in that subject was a B" you meant in Psychology. Why not look at different universities and see any related Psychology courses? Do a wide search of different degrees relating to Psychology because there will be something out there relating to that subject in a lot of universities! And because Psychology is a science related topic I guess, why not have a look at university sites through their courses science related ect?
