    My first time posting on here so I don't really know how this works.

    Okay basically, I'm in Year 12 studying History, Psychology and Sociology. I know I want to go to uni but I don't know what I want to study and most people I know already know and are attending lectures and events related to their chosen subject but I'm here without having done anything. I'VE LITERALLY SAT HERE LIKE A LEMON

    How am I supposed to choose a degree? I need to choose something pretty fast so I can get experience to do with that degree. Has anyone been in a similar situation as me? I'm scared I'll choose something that I'll end up regretting :/

    Also, does anyone know about any other events such as UCL's Uni Link?
    And what other extra curricular stuff can I do?

    Hey
    I'm in the same boat as you!
    I'd say take advantage of any and all enrichment opportunities, maybe you'll find an area you're really interested in while listening to a lecture or attending an event. Don't rush it though - it's not essential that you know exactly what you want to do right now, you can always take a year out before uni and figure out what you want to do then. Don't worry about it though, in my experience, most people don't really know as much about what they want to do as they claim!
    Hope that helps
