If you want to know which direction to take, you need to know where you are trying to get to.
What career do you want?
- does it require a specific degree?
What do you find interesting?
What do you find easy?
What is wrong with following the crowd?
Do you intend to do a master's degree?
What sort of subjects do you get your best marks in?
No degree is useless: many jobs just want someone with a 2:2 or a 2:1 and don't care what subject.
