Do you have any interests? Any potential careers you like the look of?

Like the sound of workinh with people one to one or in grpups... to help battle barriers to learning or help achieve their goals. Maybe somerhing educational or therapeutic ... but maybe not a teacher as such

Just go through one of the uni guides and leaf through courses. Think what interests you or alternatively think about what you want to do for a career.

Its important if you pick a degree, then you really know why you are doing it as its going to cost you £50,000.

Start with subjects youve studied and then look at what new areas you can do at uni.

Literally just go through one of the guides and start narrowing it down. Some topics you wont want to do, some you will be barred from because of your A levels.

I'm in the same position. For me it's between business management, economics or politics with international relations. I want to work in the music business though but it's so hard knowing where to start and which is best doing. Hope you don't mind me asking but did you take a gap year after A levels/BTEC?
