    I am in fifth year at high school (I'm nearly 17) and all my friends seem to know what they want to do as a degree and beyond. I myself am struggling, as it seems every fortnight I change my mind about what i want to do. I know i want to go to uni, but i honestly have no clue what to do. I'm interested in the social sciences, and history is my favourite subject.
    Last year I got 6 As at National 5 level, and in my prelims I got 5 As in history, english, maths, chemistry and biology. I was planning on taking AH maths and history next year, with crash highers in modern studies and geography/business. I'd really appreciate if anyone had suggestions or courses to look into, recommendations would be great. I'm just worried I'm gonna make the wrong decision and regret it later on.

    History is a pretty versatile degree to have, you don't need to go into a career linked directly to your degree either if you have a careers advisor at your school chat to them too
