    I left school last summer with 3 A levels and went to Nottingham University, however, I didn't feel like University was for me so i left at Christmas time.

    Since then I have been applying for apprenticeships, mainly in sort of Economics-y related ones, I've got an assessment centre tomorrow so fingers crossed for that. But I have recently realised that I am not THAT interested in the world of economics and finance. I have mainly been applying because my dad works in finance sector so it seemed sensible, and i did well at Economics A level.

    But even though Im not too sure if I want to apply for these types of apprenticeships, I don't really know what else to apply for!

    What sort of things is everyone else applying for? Especially those who aren't really sure on what they want to do with their future.

    I applied for just Business Apprenticeships,like at Selex ES. There, you do rotations of their finance department and operations and stuff- it'll be good for me if I get in cause I know I want to work in the business sector, but not sure of the specific area.
