So basically during 6th year at school I didn't really know what i wanted to do. I somehow decided to apply to Robert Gordon University to do mechanical engineering, now i regret it. I dont like the course, i dont like lecturers, im not too sure i like the uni, it seems like there is no prestige to it whatsoever (est 1992) and it seems to be looked down upon by a lot of my mates at Aberdeen uni.
Recently ive not been attending many of my classes and i have to go in for a "meeting" tomorrow. I think i would be much happier if next academic year i transfered to Aberdeen uni and also changed course. I was looking into Economics and i think I would actually enjoy it. Is there much point in me staying till the end of the year and sitting the exams? My flatmate said it might be easier to get into Aberdeen if i have a year experience of university.
I'm feeling really pissed off about everything right now, like as if im just wasting my time being here.

What makes you think you'll enjoy economics?

As you're so close to the end of the academic year, it would be a shame to throw away all that time and effort you've already spent at your current university.
Your friend is probably righht, it would look better to Aberdeen if you stayed and completed the year rather than trying to explain why you dropped out right before the end.

This is a pickle. If you haven't applied to Aberdeen you might have to wait till the next UCAS cycle.
