Deciding between subjects: How I chose my degree course (Izzy)
I study BA (Hons) Economics and Politics, so here’s how I decided to choose this subject. Growing up, I never really knew what I wanted to be when I was older. I was quite good at most subjects at school, so there was no obvious path for me to choose when it came to GCSE…
