Thinking of going to university at 18?

You will need to consider your post-16 courses very carefully.  Be aware that the subjects you choose at 16 will have an affect on the courses that you can choose to study at 18.

UCAS, the Universities Clearing and Admission Service, offers students a new advice portal to support young people in their post-16 decision-making.
