I'm in the same situation as OP but I'm in my third year. I'm going to take your advice cos' right now the only thing keeping me at uni is the money to keep on doing what I really want to do outside the course. My course lecturers are completely clueless. I've been considering dropping out too and would have if my enrolment didn't get sorted on time.

Here's the thing. You're allowed one false start and it's really important that you don't do any more than this otherwise if you decide you want to go back to university, depending on how many years you did before, you will have to pay up to £9k per year without a tuition fee loan to cover it.
What you decide now is really important. If you think you can grind your way through to a 2:1 then go for it. If not leave now and don't go back to university, if you want to go back, until you're certain of what you want to do.
The worst thing you can do is to drop out in 2nd or 3rd year (this is what I did)
Why don't you look at going to Uni as a job?

Change uni or change your course within the same uni (a lot easier) and do it sooner than later. If you dont like the course you need to change. Dont let it put you off other uni's.
I know its easier to just drop out entirely or to change nothing and continue but either one of those options are not really what you want. You took that course for a reason, its just that you now need to apply what you have learnt and make a change. I would say this is actually quite common. Many of the people I knew on the first year disapeared on the second because it was most likely not for them. That being said you might like the second year better as you will have different lecturers that know they are teaching people that are totally new to the course.
