    Finished my first year in college doing computing, art and economics. My college wants me to write a personal statement for university by the end of the week or they saying they can't let us re-enrol next year. Thing is though I have no idea what I want to do at Uni or after uni at all I've somewhat lost interest in the subjects im doing and I don't know if I was to do them at Uni. I did find one course which was economics and computer science joint honours, which idek if it's good or not as I've never been told about joint honours, also I can only find that one uni that does it and they want ABB a level to get in, which to be honest I could in actual a level but the AS exams I just did I feel like I possibly got BBB/ CBB at best. I can't even write about things I do outside of college because I have done literally nothing. I'm literally stressing so much here and I have no idea what to do.

    Also sorry if this is in the wrong place, this is my first post.

    Is there a college counsellor or similar who you can talk to? I really don't understand colleges that put this kind of pressure on students who don't know if they want to go to uni or not and need guidance with picking something to study. You don't need to go to uni to do what you want to in life even though it does strengthen your chances in most cases. Have a think about what you enjoy doing and what you don't and what jobs you may like to do. Then think about whether you need to go to uni or an apprenticeship or the like is more suitable.
