    I'm taking maths, biology, psychology and history at as level (but i think i will drop history next year at a2). I don't know what course I want to do but i have a few ideas. If i don't find a course i like, i will NOT go to uni, so don't think i'm going to uni for the sake of going or because my friends are.

    I like maths and psychology the most so preferably a course related to one of those subjects. I am slightly autistic but i am a relatively high performer (got 3A*'s, 5A's and 2B's at gcse and am expecting 2A's and 2B's at as level). I have always had a natural talent for maths, but do not know of many interesting real life application maths courses for me to do which will lead to a job. I just enjoy working out problems. I like problem solving a lot and find the idea of business interesting. But i also enjoy psychology and am just as good at psychology as i am with maths (expecting an A in both of the subjects at as-level). But I sometimes feel it's too easy and I've heard it's not a good degree to do wherever you go because lots of people are doing it and it has low employment rate. I'm unsure what i should do, if you have any ideas based on my interests please answer this

    hi, you could possibly think about doing maybe accounting and finance, that involves maths obviously and also has a business element to it. Also at some unis, within this course there a modules that are like consumer psychology so it can involve psychology as well
