I am currently in year 12 and I'm really struggling to decide what degree I want to do, or even what career I really want to do.

I'm currently studying Maths, Chemistry, Computer Science and German (and planning on may dropping one, definitely not Maths though). I've had a look at a couple of courses on various universities' websites, but nothing has really caught my interest.

I don't think I want to just do one thing, like just Maths or German or Chemistry (because I think I'd die lol)

Ideally in my head, it would be a degree that is primarily very useful and well regarded, that would involve some applied maths (but not just be maths) and would involve problem solving, but not mathematical problem solving, more like logical and argumentative - solving a real world problem.

I'm sorry if this was all a bit vague, but I'd really appreciate any advice you could give

Best way to acheieve this is joint degree I would imagine or a course where you start broadly then pick around. I would have a look at a few university pages to see what they offer on terms of these style.
I would suggest having a look at MORSE - Warwick/ Southhampton -MORE - Bristol and I think a few others
Or perhaps Maths with Computer science/ Maths with economics?

You could consider a joint course with maths?
In terms of applied maths, physics would be great for that, (but I guess that’s not what you wanna do since it’s not an a level for you). Computer science has some applied maths too, right? Have you considered an engineering type of route?

You could consider a degree in Liberal Arts and specialise in one or two subjects. (This is what I did and I personally loved it.)
