    I'm 17, 18 next week and I'm currently studying accountancy but I've come to realise it isn't really what I want to do, I was thinking more along the lines of science and maths combined, like a physicist. So if you can think of any career like that please mention it..
    However i'm very unsure on what route I should take, such as go back and do sixth form until I'm 20 then do uni or is there anyway i can go straight from engineering and accountancy to uni/apprenticeship?

    You can look into foundation years at university, what qualification are you currently studying?

    You may want to consider an access course prior to university as you normally need some sort of level 3 qualification to get onto a foundation year, but that's not to say its not worth double checking though.
