Be aware the Psychology market is saturated and its unlikely you will get employment related to the degree.
marketing or HR sound a lot more stable. Maybe HR with psychology? That way you can do the professional HR exams after?

If you are really confused you can take a gap or do an apprenticeship.

Dont decide until you are sure as you only get one degree of full funding in most cases. No need to be under pressure, if not sure then dont go and do more research or experience. For now you should focus on exams.

These books are good at helping you decide on a career from scratch.

Careers- See if you can get any of these books at the careers library or they will have similar for you to read. Try and get ones aimed at your age group. If you cant find then just get second hand from Amazon.
