    I currently take Maths, Economics, IT and Polish for my a levels but i do not like any enough to continue studying them for uni. Out of the 4 I mostly enjoy maths, but maths at uni is so hard subject wise and hard to get into as I will not get an A.

    Can anyone help me out on what to study? Maybe there is some general course that will help me out in any field?

    I do not want to spend £27k on something I dislike and then suffer with it for 3 years

    You mean what to study for A level or what to study for a degree?

    There are hundreds of different degrees.
    Have a look, but get an idea of what interests you or what job you might like to do and work backwards to get the required degree .

    Just look through uni websites and get an idea of what things interest you. more you do it then the more it will make sense.

    You can also get work experience and take a year out. its smart to avoid starting a degree you have no passion for.

    With economics and maths, you can study a joint honours with maths and something else, or like finance and management. You can then go into the financial sector as a career

    Lots of TSR advice here : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...-what-to-study

    There are lots of subjects that need Maths like Computer Science, Economics, anything 'with Quantitative Methods'. And there are subjects don't need specific subjects but value Maths skills - Social Science, Law, Psychology for instance.

    Deciding what to do in university can be extremely daunting, but there is a huge range of courses in all the universities that you may not even realise!

    I know when I was applying for university I tended to only look for subjects I was offered in Sixth form.

    Check out all of our Undergraduate courses here, and see if there are any that you would be interested in. http://www.hope.ac.uk/undergraduate/coursefinder/

    Hope this helped!
