So I’m in year12 and i do maths, economics and psychology. I am still very unsure on what to do for uni or even if i do go uni and may just do an apprenticeship. I’m thinking about doing taster courses but any suggestions? Psychology i probably enjoy the most but it has a low salary and ofcourse i want a good balance

If you're unsure about what you want to do at a place where you're going to have to do something you've chosen to do for the next 3-4 years with a heavy weight of a potential £30000 loan you'll have to pay back as soon as you land a decent job....please be patient and think things through. You'll end up dropping out aka wasting time and money, getting bad grades aka wasting time and money and costing your self-esteem OR having a degree which will land you in a job you hate. Take a year out after you finish school if you still feel the same way and start work I'd say. Save up from that. You have the time.

Edit:
Thennnnn make a decision after a year.

Go ahead with an apprenticeship first. If you don't like it, you can always go back to university.

Whereas if you started with university and decide it's not for you, and you move over to an apprenticeship and then also decide that an apprenticeship is not for you, then you will not get funding for all university years and may be unable to complete your degree.
