    Hi
    I'm a second year student and i'm thinking of dropping out of university as i've had a really bad 2nd year so far

    I've been feeling terrible for the last two months and i've had a really bad start to my second year getting really low grades and I don't fancy repeating the year next year

    Would I be able to drop out now or at the end of the year without repercussions?
    ie having to pay tuition fees out of my own pocket

    Thanks a lot

    and please no sarcastic/stupid replies

    Repercussions?

    1). 2011 entry will be record year for places, most likely
    2). 2012, either the end of the world or a hike in fees to up to £9000
    3). Barely any jobs for graduates never mind people that haven't gotten higher education.

    Stick it out, you're a better person for it. Everyone gets demoralised every few months, especially round about Christmas holidays, I always feel like **** in January, but I ride it out. Take christmas off, reset yourself.

    Or you could just drop out.

    Why do you want to drop out exactly? Bad course? Bad people? etc
