    I am halfway through my second year at uni and the course i am doing just doesnt interest me anymore. I dont go to lectures or seminars and i hardly put any effort into my coursework or exams. I have recently decided on the career that i want to get into after uni and this course isnt related to it. I think if i continue on this current course i will most likely fail and even if i dont fail i wont be able to get into the career that i now want to get into.

    Is it too late for me too change course?

    and the entry requirements for the course that i want to do are higher than what i got at a-levels so will this matter?

    It's not too late really, I'm doing the same thing (though transferring to a different university through UCAS) in my second year.

    If you still want to stay at the same university, then you'll need to speak to someone in admissions in the department that you want to go into, they'll be able to tell you if you can transfer if your grades don't meet the entry requirements.

    As you're a second year, you'll probably have to pay for the first year of your tuition fees on the new course, I'd speak to student finance and/or student services and they'll be able to talk through the finance arrangements with you.

    Hope that helps.
