    I am year 13 (in north of Ireland so equivalent to yr 12 in England etc), and studying AS levels in French, history, English lit and maths. My predicted AS grades are AAAA, although I wouldn't be surprised if i ended up with a b/c in maths. I plan to drop maths next year, and aim for A*AA in the others. What courses do you think would be suited to my range of subjects? I've considered history (maybe combined with French), or law/ law with French, but I really don't know what I'd like to do! Any suggestions of courses/ of good unis for these degrees? Thanks

    Deciding what to do at uni is a really personal thing, and you shouldn't choose a course just for the sake of choosing a course. I would suggest going to some open days this summer at unis that offer all the subjects you're interested in. You can then find out more about what each course involves and decide if any of them appeal to you.

    What do you think you would like to do after your degree?

    The short answer is don't go to university and waste time and money until you actually know what you want to do. Take a year out, earn some money, think about things clearly and apply with known grades in hand - all of those things will be a big plus to you.
