What should I study at uni? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently in year 12 doing :
    AS Art
    AS English Literature
    As Mathematics
    AS Religious Studies
    I know it's early to be seriously thinking about what I might want to do but I'm really stuck and want to have a rough idea of what departments I want to look at whilst looking round universities. The problem is that, except for Religious Studies, I enjoy all my subjects equally and I'm predicted A's in all of them. So at the moment I could either do a humanities degree, an art degree or a mathematical kind of degree. I'm worried that on results day all my grades will all be the same and I'll be none the wiser as to what to study. There are pro's and con's to each degree and I have already looked at the courses but has anyone got any words of wisdom when it comes to deciding what I should study at university.

    A degree in Theology or Philosophy
