    If you want to go to uni, then you need to finish all your schooling before that. You know what you don't like. Now figure out what you do like. This could take some time. Try thinking outside the box of what you think you can and want to do. What are your hobbies? When you are online, what kinds of things are you looking at or reading about? Is there anything that you are good at that you would like to develop into a career (or maybe you haven't even considered of turning it into a career?)
