Not feeling like the course fits?

    I study first year illustration in Cardiff Met and I've got to say that the thought of leaving has probably crossed my head more than 20 times this past year. I feel like I've learnt nothing and feel stressed 24/7 because I just don't know what I'm doing anymore and why I'm even doing it. The tutors are nice enough don't get me wrong, but there is such a vagueness with everything they do and say that I do not know what is expected of me and feel like I am not achieving the grades I should be. I don't know if this is standard frst year blues but I don't have a lot of motivation with the course nor do I have a lot of motivation with what I largely regarded as my passion. Any guidance or help would be greatly appreciated.
