    Don't pick a random course or a random uni - do research, think about course content, prospects, uni life, location etc... If you aren't sure this year then honestly don't go, and don't go just because you enjoy Psychology now - you have to make sure that you'll enjoy degree-level psychology! Maybe you can find out what that's like from open days etc.

    You have until January 15th to decide for non-health courses, so there's no need to rush, but start to think about your application just in case. It helps to get one ready while you have the support of sixth form/college tutors to also help with references. Jane here are a few links which might help you decide what you want to study.

    I recommend the Courses - 1000s to 5 infographic!
