    im currently in my first year at uni
    studying accounting

    problem is that i dont like the uni, and i dont like the course, so was thinking of dropping out and moving unis...

    now the real problem is that i got into uni with 2 A levels (B,C) and an accountancy NVQ level 3, which unis will only accept for me to study accountancy

    ive got a couple of options in mind...
    not sure about this but, could i apply toi the uni i want to go to, for accountancy, then change to something completely unrelated when i start, say psychology, or biology

    i was thinking of maybe doing the accountancy A level, yes the whole A level in 6 months (dont really know what im letting myself in for if i do lol), as im pretty clued up about it and should be able to do fairly well, the NVQ contains pretty much the same stuff as the A level course anyway
    just wondering whether places would allow me to do the whole A level in 6 months

    thanks for any replies
    and i know its late to do an application again now bla bla bla but i can get that done before the deadline no problem

    Your first option is unlikely to work. To change to a course like that you would need to already meet the requirements they want. If you already meet the requirements for the course you want to change to then you obviously have a better chance of moving onto that course.

    Your second option is a possibility and the best idea would be to ring around places that offer an A-Level in Accountancy and explain your situation. I'm not too clued up on admission policies in the middle of a school year so best to ring up. All I will say though is that if a place does let you do the course you will take the exam in the summer rather than January.
