a level

I am currently in Year 12, studying Maths, Computer Science, and Chemistry. For the past few months, I have been struggling with what to do after sixth form, because I want to go university but don't know what I would study and honestly just want the experience of moving out. Obviously, that can't be the sole reason I go to uni. It doesn't help that I am also unsure what career I would want to pursue, I've considered accounting but don't know much about it. Does anyone have any advice on how to decide what career and courses I should follow? Also, when would I have to apply to universities?

The best thing you can be doing at the moment is research about different career paths and university courses. You apply for uni through UCAS in the autumn - usually through your school.
hi i know this is 2 days ago but heres some information
usually universities start their open days around autumn winter time
if you're interested in accounting got to these open events at which ever university catches your eye.
during that time you will begin your application for ucas in school and be expected to send it out before 31st of Jan (deadline for UCAS) so in other words you will have about 4 months to visit as many unis as you're interested in ask questions, speak to current students and then make a decision. make sure the 5 choices are choices you're happy with so when it comes to firming your option around april may time you're happy with your first choice.
the only advice i have is finding some uni students who've studied similar subjects they do and find out what they're doing now. and if its something you are interested in. but dont worry school take you through it all.
maybe you're interested in apprenticeships try looking into that aswell.
as your progress teacher in school-the one incharge of your next steps- and try getting answers from them. speak to some y13 students in school before they leave and see what they did and where they are going.
you've got a good choice of a levels that can honestly take you into so many paths.
i hope this help in some way : )
