    I have been doing various apprenticeships based in an office and have quickly come to terms that it is not for me and I am looking to go to college next year. The only problem is I am unsure of what to study. I have a C in maths, a D in English Language (I would retake it in college), a D* in Business, Merit in Health and social, I got a D in Science, ICT and french however I got a C in English Lit. Can anyone help me weigh up my options? Any courses I should avoid that I may be considering? Please help

    Id like to ask a few questions before I reply to your thread.
    Do you plan on going to university? if so, possibly what for?
    If you don't go to university, do you have any possible plans for post-college?
    what do you enjoy and what subjects inspire you?

    It's always difficult to advise on certain subjects because my interests and what I enjoy and hope to do with my course may be completely different to you.However, my advice to anyone picking a college course or A levels is to look at what you enjoy and have enjoyed in the past and what you might want to do with your course.

    Have you spoken to colleges/sixth forms near you? This should begin to give you an idea of subjects you are able to do, and that may help narrow your choices down.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
