    Basically I regret all of my subjects (English lit, Psychology and Government and Politics) as I feel like it doesn't represent my abilities. I initially wanted to do law but 1. my grades aren't good enough and 2. I now find it boring. I feel like should have chose more respectable subjects like Maths or the Sciences. I also believe that the subject I am going to study for uni Politics/ Politics and International Relations won't benefit me in the future. Moving to America to study not only would the degrees be more respected, I feel like due to their academic flexibility would give me more time to decide what I want to do with my life. So, if possible after exams should I take a gap year then apply to an american universities?

    Sorry that this is long I just feel frustrated with my decisions... Any help is much appreciated!

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    I'm not sure on your decisions but when applying to American Unis you have to write tons of essays and submit either your ACT score or SAT score. I'm thinking about applying to some American unis atm and I'm taking the SAT this summer (nowhere offers the ACT around me). I bought a book from amazon and it's 1000+ pages which is crazy ahaha
    They also look more at your extra curriculars so make sure you have leadership roles/sports etc
    Good luck!
