Stumped on what to study after high school? Welcome to Planet Overwhelmed. Population: all of us.

If you’re almost finished high school, picking a tertiary pathway can feel like a blur of Uni Open Days, looming UAC deadlines and late night Google searches. Because let’s be real –narrowing down thousands of undergraduate options to find a compatible course and campus, is probably one of the biggest decisions you’ve had to make so far.

In order to give your brain the chill space it needs to do other important things – like er, study for the HSC – we’ve dug up five quizzes designed to help you find a degree that fits. Match a pathway with your extra-curricular interests and discover which of our e-mags is the right resource for you!

And if you don’t get the ATAR needed to get into your first few preferences? There are loads of awesome alternative pathways that don’t involve heading to Uni.

  1. The second question in the quiz “Which area of science should I study” implies that creativity and Mathematics don’t mix. This is a grave misconception. If anything, creativity is absolutely necessary in Maths. I’m deeply disappointed that this website, which aims to promote careers in STEM no less (!) perpetuates this type of prejudicial thinking.

  2. A question in the math quiz asked me to choose an option:

    I am alright at maths and don’t like it
    I like maths and I’m good at it
    I am good at maths but don’t like it.

    What if I like it but I’m not good at it? These quizzes lack options
