    I'm an AS student in Year 12 currently having the biggest struggle deciding what to study at uni. Since I study Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry it's probably going to be an 'elite' subject like Physics, Maths, Engineering, or Medicine. I got 9A* 2A at GCSE and I'm on track to get 4A at AS so I also want to try my hand at Oxford. Any advice?

    What do you want to study? What do you like? What do you want to do as a career?

    You have so many door opened because of your subjects so go for what you want to do

    What about chemical engineering - those 4 subjects go very well with that (usually maths, physics and chemistry is required)

    But what kind of thing can you imagine yourself doing for the rest of your life? Or what can you imagine studying for the next 3-4 years of your life?

    Wouldn't say you're ready to decide which subject to study if all you know is that it should be a so-called 'elite' subject...

    That's an incredibly broad question.

    My only comment is that if you're actually interested in medicine, you need to get work experience/voluntary work in a caring setting ASAP. This will help you decide if its for you, as well as giving you something you need for applications.
