hi, so I'm doing my A levels and still haven't decided on my university course. my A levels don't really link so there is no obvious direction to go into

At As level I got Geography-A
Psychology-A
Chemistry-C

I enjoy all of them equally. I don't have a plan for the future and have no idea what job I want to do. I love baking, reading and enjoy a challenge!

any suggestions? :confused:

Excellent grades by the way.
Do you even the slightest idea?
For example can you imagine yourself in:
Healthcare
Teaching
Law
Working for a company in a graduate position
I know they seem a bit naf but maybe use one of those career websites where you put in details about yourself and they recommend careers.

Have you thought of doing a Geology degree? I'm doing it right now as a part of my joint honours, along with Physics. Geology would certainly link your Chemistry with Geography. Plus, there's lots of jobs in the 'oil' sector and they do earn you a fair bit of money.

thanks, I honestly have no idea, I'm rubbish at arguing so would be no good as a lawyer and can't see myself as a Doctor but I have thought about doing something with the NHS like Nutrition but I'd rather not do a specialized degree because I keep changing my mind so much with deciding on a degree there is no way i would make it through a 3 year degree and still want to be a nutritionist at the end.
I've tried and it just suggested i become a sales assistant... don't need a degree for that

this might sound a bit small minded but isn't it just learning types of rocks...

What about taking a gap year and really considering what you want to do? I mean try and get as much work experience in as many different areas as possible. Better that than going into university blind as to what you want to do next.

No, it's far more than that, it's basically physical geography. You get to learn about earthquakes, volcanos and the lava, fault-lines, palaeontology, oceans, evolution of the Earth over the past 4,500 million years, some uni's will teach you about the solar system (my one does!); internal structure and chemical composition of the Earth; continent, plate tectonics; formation and fill of sedimentary basins; absolute and relative geological time (the fossil record and absolute dating); geological maps and structures etc. Have a look at different uni's websites to get the idea.
