I really want to go to university but I have no idea what I want to do. I was considering Maths but I don't do further maths, unless I pick it up as an as next year and even then it's not ideal. Then I thought about doing psychology but it's looked down upon by alot of people and I don't like it as much as Maths.

I do Biology, Maths, Psychology and English language and literature but I'm dropping English as the subject didn't really suit me.

Any help would be appreciated

You should not go to university unless you are sure about what you want to do there. Take a year out, work, gain some life experience and in that time you will gain more knowledge about what you want from life, and you'll know what you want to do at university as a result.

you were put off psychology purely because of peoples thoughts or was there another reason? how about something like neuroscience?
I know there are some universities that would take you without FM if you got decent grades depends where you really want to go.

That and its hard to get a decent job after university without having studied it further. I also considered neuroscience but i noted that many people who studied it started of in a different degree, then moved on to it at masters whether that was through a biology degree or otherwise. But maybe i'm wrong

i think with psychology it always depends on what your motivators are, its a good choice if you want to do something that helps people but if its a salary that will be your main motivator its possibly not the best option for you.
I think some universities offer integrated msci in neuroscience if you do want to go into neuroscience you d certainly meet the requirements with your chosen subjects if you drop english
Theres lot of other life science courses you could look into as well, although some would possibly want you to have chemistry.

Salary isn't the main motivator, I really do enjoy the subject but it would be nice to know that I can put the degree to use in a job

Psychology is a good choice but go with what you enjoy and whatever will benefit you most in the long term.

how about going to some open days and see if the psychology talks help you decide? it would depend which kind of psychology you wanted to do really, forensic and educational take less study after your undergrad so i ve heard.
