    I started studying Maths at Uni in September. However after a few weeks I dropped out as I felt I would not enjoy my course despite loving the Uni experience. Part of me wants to go back to Uni next year however tbh I feel there are no courses which I will enjoy. My other option is apprenticsehips in fields such as accounting. Unfortunately all the good apprenticeships for this year have started. I therefore do not know what to do this year, be it get a lesser apprenticeship, a job and wait for next year or look for work experience. I'm also unsure what I should do next September.
    I have AAA* in maths, f.maths and physics.
    Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    You get funding for degree length +1 gift year.

    You have used your gift year. That means you have much less room to change your mind, but you still have full funding available.

    As you enjoyed the uni experience its just a case of the right course and when. No panic.

    You have great grades so have an open mind and explore the world of work bia apprenticeship or otherwise so you can id what might interest you. If you dont know the course exactly hen try another angle and look at careers you might like, then get experience/ placements and see how you feel. Earn some money if possible and see how it goes.

    No need to be in a rush and things do pop up. The point is youve done a lot of the hard work, so a gap year or two wont do any harm. Go traveling if that floats your boat or just take a break. For the moment id just be getting some money for Christmas.
