For me my choice was made as I was only relatively better at one subject compared to anything else.. so I looked around and saw that maths was a good degree to have, though not an easy one. Things like public lectures, summer schools etc help to give insight, but ultimately you want to be doing the right kind of degree but one where you have a good classification as a minimum, then other experience to help you stand out. Eg doing summer internships or even a placement year, 'measurable' interests that you can stick on your CV/talk about eg some kind of competition that you took part in and came ...
But that's about uni stuff. I think at A-level maths.. if you can do it, it's definitely worth doing as it kind of keeps your options open and may or may not be useful in the future (where some jobs stipulate that you need a certain grade in A-level maths for example)
It's difficult to choose/find/know what you want to do in life but look for opportunites, gain some insight or tasters if possible and try. If you fail, no biggie, learn what you can and try again.
