    i take maths, history, geography. dont know, but definitely dont fancy myself doing a job where there's lots of bureaucracy/form filling/paper work etc, essays in school have already put me off tons of that stuff.

    architecture seems interesting, i also like editing, urgh i seriously have no idea.

    first i decided based on feedback i had from people and my gut instinct, that was a bad idea, so i fked up that attempt

    then for 2nd attempt i decided to go with what i realised i love, which is computers, i figured that all the time i've spent on them won't be in vain if i go on to study it, it could somehow become an asset to me.

    i didn't really base it on what i want to do as a job (because i don't give a crap what i do as a job) based it on what i think i can put up with studying for 3 years, which has to be something you have a deep interest in or that you can justify in some other way.

    Hi I am the same as you. I would definitely not want to do a job that has a lot of bureaucracy and repetitive work.

    Because I have a lot of interests, I chose a course that is interdisciplinary which covers a lot of my interests in various fields.

    One of the courses I chose was Human Sciences, which is an interdisciplinary field which covers: biology, anthropology, geography, sociology and politics and it is all one course which is fascinating for me

    If you aren't sure about what subject you want to take, perhaps applying to Scotland where it is possible to take multiple subjects in the first two years wouldn't be a bad idea!

    I would suggest looking into Architecture (for most universities you need to submit art portfolios for that) and other interdisciplinary subjects that may catch your interest.

    Hope this helps!

    I just chose what I liked, this narrowed it down to doing either Chemistry or Maths, or even both. I'm currently studying Chemistry.

    The only reason why I didn't choose maths was because my brother just finished a maths degree and didn't want to be compared or thought to be copying him, whether or not that was the right idea still remains unknown :iiam:

    I decided Nursing in year 12 and was pretty set to do it - had offers, passed occupational health and then one day decided 'nah'.

    This isn't intended to help you (I apologise!) but rather to let you know that whatever you do decide, you always have the opportunity to change.

    I started by making lists of what I wanted to study, then made pros and cons, what I could do with the degree ect and it helped me decide.

    Good luck!
