If you are still mulling over what course to study at uni, try this exercise: you’ll find that it will really get you thinking about ‘what’s possible’.

  • Write your A-level subjects across a piece of paper in order of preference/likely grade.
  • Under each subject, write down 4 related university courses in order of preference
  • For each course write down three related careers that you are considering

Here’s an example:

English

  • Which is most appealing?
  • What sort of salaries and employment rates are attached to these degrees/careers?
  • If you had to pick one career, which would you choose?

Good luck!
