    Does anyone know of any good sites on careers, or have any general advice for choosing one? I'm considering things like Law, Economics or Maths, but I want to find out more about this.
    Do you have any kind of vague idea of where you'd like to see yourself in 10/20/30 years ?

    Get a list of careers and a pen. Close your eyes and aim the pen at the list. Whichever it lands on you go for (each way of course). It works on National Day, I'd assume it will transfer to picking a career.

    That may have come from you being home schooled - you have not had the same social interactions that the majority of your peer group have had. This might change with university - it might not. Which ever is the answer, you'll have a lot to think about going into a regular educational environment. Don't try to get too specific too early.
