Choosing a college to go to and what subjects to choose watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently doing my GCSEs in year 11 and I have to start applying to colleges and choose what A level subjects I want to pick but I am not sure what to pick as I have sat down and thought about what I want to do in the future and what A level subjects will help me achieve the job I want but I just don't know what to do. I have even spoke to my careers teacher about what I want to do in college and the future but I cant seem to know or think of what I want to do. The problem is that I don't enjoy any subjects in school. whenever someone asks me what my favourite subject is, I just say I don't have one or I lie and make one up.

    What sort of interests do you have? You can work from there. Or what are you good at? Doesn't have to be academic but it can be a starting point
