    I'm about to start my second year of studying French at university. And it has become abundantly apparent that I'm not pleased about it. Over the past year I'm done very little work, not taking the trouble to learn an awful lot, not out of laziness but because I just don't care about the subject. Surely this is not supposed to be.

    I want to switch Ancient History, which was the subject I initially wanted to apply for here but didn't because I didn't think I'd make the asking grades (I actually exceeded them in the end). Term starts in just under a week. I know it's late in the day but do you think there's any chance they'd let me switch outright, even though obviously I'd have to be a first year again? I'd really like to stay at the university I'm at. And I don't want to quit the course I'm currently on only to reapply next year, not be accepted and end up courseless and stranded.

    They're not obligated to, but there's a chance you could get a course change if they have any spaces on the course. Email the Ancient History department ASAP. Explain the situation and give them your A level grades. Best of luck.
