Your sixth form should have some sort of guidance person for university applications. Speak to them or at least speak to your tutor for advice on this. What year are you in?

Also, this website https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...tion&s=History lets you look at the best universities for your subject and how you want to look at them, for example, student satisfaction, entry standards, research quality. It's on there all on there.
This website https://exploria.co.uk can also help when writing a personal statement.

I’d recommend first getting a general idea of what course you want to do: natural sciences, physics, chemistry, maths etc, whatever you like best.

If you can’t decide, consider doing work experience in some of the fields, or reading books, watching videos, documentaries etc to see which area you are most intrigued in. Try checking out some university syllabuses too and see which topics you might like to study further.

Once you have done this, then it’s time to look at universities. Look at the league tables for science and pick out a few. Then look at their websites at their scheme of work, student satisfaction rates and teaching styles. The next step would be to look at open days to go to see the university in person. Hopefully by the end of all that, you’ll have a much better idea of what you want to do.

At the risk of sounding cliche, everyone takes different times to decide what they want to do. And your university course doesn’t set in concrete your entire career - internships and other work experience later on in life might put you on a different path.

Hope this helps 😊
