You're only in 5th year now? You have MOUNTAINS of time before you need to decide what to do, and when you choose something, you'll change your mind at least another 3 times. Most of my friends changed their CAO forms constantly until the closing date. Don't worry about it now, but in the end, go with what interests you, not what you're "expected" to do. Remember the UK is always an option too! (woo, scotland!)

Seriously though, take a bit of time to see which of your leaving cert topics interest you most and do some research into what courses you can do in this area. Don't tie yourself down to one course either. Even if there's no doubt that you'll get into it, you may still decide you don't like it so "shop" around.
The best thing to do is something you're interested in but be practical when it comes to employment options too. And don't worry, you have PLENTY of time to figure out what you want to do with your life

from a 21 year old who is going back to college in september 4years after i did my leavin (its going to be scary going back il hve to use my brain if i have one accoring to some people i have minus brain) take the time to see what interests you!! do you like to work with people, would sitting in an office all day interest you, or could you sit alone in a lab for the day, can you be ruthless or are you soft and truthful!!

also depending on where you live go see a GOOD guidance cousellor, pay money im going to one who costs 250 for a session but he is good!! dont just use the school person do some investigaion now!! also you have years, say you do engineering and decide you hate engineering at teh end of the 4years you can go off and do your masters in say business or someting, in this day you ate totally not stuck with one thing you have such choice take your time and do research!! but in the end go with your gut, dont listen to people if they say ah you will get way more points than that or you woulndt be too good at that, if your dont like it you can change or if its not for you!!

nothing is cheap now a days, if you go to college at least you can get a grant!! whereas working is expensive, i work and can barely afford to go out whereas all students i kno go out lots and lots!! so moral stay in college for as long as possible, you dont have to get up if you dont wanna!!

EarlyBird : what are your subjects. I guess when we know that we can see what courses you qualify for and maybe have a leaning towards.
