    Well I would assume you would study something you enjoy and are interested in and want a career in. Some people are primarily motivated by the financial rewards of studying and training hard for years for a good career e.g. I know many people who wanted to be doctors literally just because of the money, and for a few of them that was enough for them to put there heads down and work hard to get there. But most of them did just okay at A-level and I guess weren't cut out for it, but it also shows that money alone is not always the only or primary motivator. I am also in your position lol, I am lost. I am studying Business Law at uni, but I never wanted to go to uni, but was heavily pressured into it by my family, and because of my poor A-levels i didnt get much choice on unis, which ultimately reduced my course selection. Almost finished my second year now, and i think i know what i would be interested in studying: film, animation and game development. However, I want to study them for the skillz and because I like being creative, not because I want a career in those fields. I want to be in the royal marines and later the SAS, and a personal trainer and bodybuilder. So what I'm trying to say is ... I don't have a f*cking clue what im saying or doing, I'm studying just about enough to get a good degree to please my parents lol :danceboy:

    2. Be motivated
