    Hello, basically I have done my first year of uni and I decided I don't want to do my course anymore. My current course allowed me to commute so I needed a car so I took one out in finance (Which I have paid nearly a year of).
    Now with second thoughts about this course I have decided that I want to move out to another university, live there and start again. I've rung up many universities and it is possible through clearing. The only thing holding me back is the price of my car which is £190 a month and I'm stuck on how I'm going to be able to afford that a month with living costs.

    Any help would be grateful!
    Many thanks.

    Have you looked through your budget and looked where you can save money?

    I've had a look at budgeting with the car it becomes very very tight, I'm not sure which areas there would be for saving money but I have taken into consideration cheaper accommodation. There's a possibility of a job transfer in my company as they've had people do it in the past but it's not definite so I don't want to rely on that too much even though the transfer would make it all more than affordable!
