Well then...

They start on the first of September, so where does everyone here want to go, and for what course? huh.gif I'm planning to apply to St Andrews, to do either International Relations/French or Economics/French. Don't have much chance with the former, the latter is my best bet. wink.gif

Think I'll apply to do Law with French at either Glasgow or Strathy. Just depends what uni I feel the most affinity with!
"...You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise....
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise."

Ere, don't worry about it! This time last year I had no idea at all what I was going to do at uni (still don't really know....).

I chose an arts degree at Strathy cos it puts of decision making a little longer - we don't pick our subjects until reg. week tongue.gif ho ho!

What do you like best? Sciences, creative subjects, business-y things? Have a flick through the prospectuses and see if anything appeals to you.

You've still got months left to make a decision, so don't panic! smile.gif

well, i like art and music an awful lot, but they are both very hard to get jobs in unless you want to do teaching.

i hate science, maths, english, computing - basically all academic languages!! not good. wink.gif

the other thing about university which frightens me is all the essays and that - i can't write an essay alone to save myself.
