    Hi,

    im in year 12 and need advice, i am currently doing a btec in a subject I don't find interesting and I'm being asked to start writing my personal statement and apply for university, however I don't know what to do. I can do something computing elated in University but I'm not interested in computing, however I got no where else to turn in terms of courses, i'm stuck on 1 course as I do a BTEC, anyone got any advice what I should do?

    If I were you, I would just start again with a different BTEC course or alternatively try A levels to keep your options open. It's hard when everyone is telling you to do your personal statement ect but whats the point in applying for uni when you don't even have a course that you'd get onto ??

    Well in that case you shouldn't apply to university as you'll end up just picking a random course and won't enjoy it . Just take this summer to think hard about what it is you might like doing and perhaps in September try and visit some places and ask about different courses
