I’m currently in my last year of sixth form. I do Maths, Economics, Psychology. My predicated grades will be AAA. The problem is I really have no idea what I want to do in my life. Out of all the a levels I do the most I enjoy is Psychology but what also heavily motivates me is money. And I feel like the money isn’t there for psychology. I’ve been told to do something I enjoy at uni or else I dread uni. I just really don’t know what to do ☹️🤷*♂️

Do something you enjoy fs but it does help if that something is going to contribute to the job pathway you want to go down. Psychology is a very competitive field, the amount of people that do the degree then end up with a totally unrelated job is pretty eye opening.

I agree with above commenter. Furthermore, you shouldnt go into a certain profession only for the pay. You need to find a job that speaks to you, and you believe you will be truly happy with. At the end of the day, its better to work towards a career that maybe doesnt pay as much but will make you happy, than a career which pays a lot but might not be what you truly want to do in life
