    The title says it all really - it's between Law, Biology or Psychology (I know, a weird combination). Just wondering if any year 13's are on the same boat?!

    You definitley won't be the only one. Whatever you do, don't rush into a decision, you don't have to apply straight away or this year or even next year.

    It's just so difficult knowing what I want to do for the rest of my life as a career at the ripe age of 17! All I know is I really like biology and psychology 😂

    How about neuroscience? Sounds like something you could be interested in as it can be combination of both.

    I have seen this course floating around and it does sound interesting. Trouble is, most universities seem to require Chemistry A-Level and I dropped it after AS🙄

    Maybe you could read some books/work experience in the fields? see which one you have more of a love of.

    Some places do psychology with neuroscience that don't require chemistry.

    A lot of biology is involved in Psychology and the Law can work well in terms of the ethics of Psychological experiments etc. I think your best bet is Psychology because it ties in your other two interests the best. Good luck!

    Have a look at the course structure and modules of different psychology courses. Some will allow more focus on neuroscience. Or you could do a biomedical science degree which will allow specialisation in neuroscience (biomed students at my uni can do psychology advanced options and psychology students can choose to do the neuroscience paper from the medicine course).

    If you are really unsure then take a year (or more) out. Don't rush into a degree as you may waste your student finance entitlement and not be able to do a degree you really want in the future.
