    Hey.

    I applied for medicine 2009 entry, and only got my 5th choice which was Biology at Southampton (BBB). Ive been at Soton for a few months now and i absolutely LOVE biology. So much that im thinking about taking it as a primary degree.

    Which has got me thinking, I got 3.5 A's at Alevel, and loads of UCAS points from Music and Drama, about 550 in total. I was wondering whether i should reapply for some higher universities like Imperial and Cambridge, my UCAS level is above average and i know that i love the course.

    Will admissions people look down on the fact that ive 'dropped out' of soton - even though its in pursuit of a more intense challenging degree?? Any opinions would be great

    Thanks guys

    No, that's fine, make sure you're getting good grades in your current course though as they will look at that.

    I doubt Cambridge will accept you unless you did their “special” program and you have basically all A*’s in your GCSE’s and three A’s at a level. If you drop out you will have to pay back all your loans and grants with the loans typically being on a higher interest. You can get transferred though but I’m unsure how that system works. Best advice I can give you is to stick with your degree unless you’re not enjoying it. It may seem easy in the first year but the second and third years are a lot harder.
