    Hi, I just started studying Marketing at University, and unfortunately realised this is not what I want to do for 3 years. I did want to become an architect when I was younger and still do, again, unfortunately I was too dumb to pursue this dream.
    Now that I have realised this I want to go back and try to correct my mistakes and get into a Architecture course.

    I wanted to know what I can do now, keeping in mind that I have only achieved a grade C in GCSE Maths, and did not take any art related subjects as GCSE's.

    From what I have read, the entry requirements are quite simple: A-Level Maths and Arts.

    I do not mind going to college again and taking these 2 subjects. But again, unfortunately I do not meet the entry requirements for these 2 courses, which brings me back down to re-sitting GCSE's to get the requirements, which is a bit too far for me to go back to at the moment.

    I guess my real question is - Are the any other opportunities/possibilities for me to get into college to study the 2 courses (Maths and Arts).

    P.s. UK should really work on their educational system, I mean they gave a 16 year old a choice on what he wanted to become, I didn't even know what I wanted for lunch then....

    If you don't want to study Marketing then leave before you have to pay any tuition fees. If you are willing to spend 2years at college resitting A-levels, can you not resit your GCSEs at the same time? Also, do all universities require Maths and Art at A-level? It would be worth researching the course and seeing whether they are the requirements at all universities.
Brexit: Given the chance now, would you vote leave or remain?
