“…history? Or law?…”
“…I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT TO DO!”
Half of the conversations I overhear (I’m
nosy inquisitive like that) at sixth form are about uni applications now. It’s that time of year where the one thing we’re all obsessing about is university applications. The main question is: what to study? I know uni’s not for everyone, but with so many of our peers applying, it’s hard not to be caught up in the frenzy.
If you’re thinking of going to uni, the first thing to think about is what you want to study. What do you love? What are you good at? You don’t have to study something vocational that will definitely lead to a job, like medicine. Sometimes, it’s better to study something you really enjoy, like history, or maths. From there, you can work on whether you’ve got the grades needed for the course. Where do you want to study? Near home, or as far away as possible? It’s slightly difficult, because there’s travel to and from home to think of, even if you think that you’ll manage to go without seeing your parents for three years (I barely managed five days on a school trips – admittedly, I was nine, but still).
Once you’ve figured out what you love/what you’re good at, and whereabouts you want to study, then all I need to say is: Good luck! 🙂
