My school is beginning to put more and more pressure on me to pick a course but I'm still no closer to finding one than I was twelve months ago. Just finished my mocks and I'm likely to get 3 A* in chemistry maths and physics with an A in as history. I was wondering if anyone knew of any outside of the box suggestions for what I could do, university or not, as I am really struggling to find anything I am particularly interested in.

Unfortunately only you can answer this. You know what interests you better than anybody. Have a look through university prospectuses. Research courses that you think sound interesting and then actually read about what they entail

What do you enjoy most out of all your subjects ?

Chemistry at A Level but I normally prefer maths. I haven't been pushed this year at all (should have taken further) which is why it isn't.

Thats the issue I just don't know. I was just wondering if there are any high level apprenticeship schemes that maybe I haven't heard of that are a bit different

Don't do anything just for the sake of it unless you are a God at studying.

It's very difficult to do well in a degree you have no passion in.

If you need to ask if something is right for you, it isn't right for you.

Try finding a joint honours degree that consists of Mathematics and chemistry...read the modules and see what you think about them.

Other than that don't force going to UNI just to get a degree that you may not like.

Maybe look at Natural Sciences courses. They start broader and then let you specialise.

Or a general engineering course, similarly starts broad and then specialises.

Or, if you like the humanities AND sciences, a liberal arts with science course.

Alternatively take a gap year. There's absolutely no requirement or urgency to apply to universities in any given year.

Or, as you're already doing, look at Higher Apprenticeships.
