Poll: how certain are you that your course is right for you?Watch
Just wondering, because everyone seems so certain about their chosen degree! I'm still not even certain about mine (a bit late now of course but hey!). In September I changed from psychology to economics which i'm sure i'll love but how can one ever really know?
I orignally thought I wanted to do a mangement degree, but decided against it, and am now planning to do law next year.
AND YOUR REASON FOR THAT WAS?
Before college I wanted to electronics but I am glad I have choosen computing now.
im doing law because it seems interesting....then again i have 3 and a half more years until uni
i am so interesting
Cause of the way I felt. When I applied for management I felt that I had to do all the Ucas thing, I didn't really put much thought into my chosen degree. I was in my last year in college and I basically thought I would do well in Management, I glimpsed through some university prospectuses and choose Management. I rushed it, and didn't do it right. I only chose three universities too, they where, Manchester, UMIST and Bradford. But when I actually delved into the degree itself, it felt wrong for me, so thats why I am gonna do law instead.

Could be worse.
my grandparents are from arkansas

Last year I really thought I wanted to do Law, and I applied to Cambridge, but despite my good grades they didn't take because they said that they felt that Law wasn't for me! I was really pissed off and couldn't believe it at first, but then I just concentrated on my exams and I started to realize that Law was in fact not for me. Now I applied for Social Political Sciences, and this time I am damn sure its right for me! I love reading books about it and discussin about related topics, things I would have never done with Law. Do ask your teachers what they think of you, because often they can appreciate the way you think and which subject woudl suit you. Good Luck everybody.
I still have the odd doubt and I'm DOING my degree course... I've always been torn between languages and sciences. Science was the harder option for me but worth it, I think, because I find it so fascinating and, theoretically at least, I can keep the languages up alongside (haven't done a very good job of that so far though, admittedly!). It's only really when I'm fighting with some really difficult questions that French suddenly seems hugely inviting...
I love languages too, but have applied for a science at cambridge How easy is it to keep up to scratch in languages at cambridge? Are there conversation classes that anyone can turn up to?
languages have always offered me a break from the occasional tedium of science
I applied for Comp Sci last year, but changed my mind and I'm doing Physics now. It's hard, but interesting.
Except I'm doing Physics with Computer Science.
