    Hiya,

    If this is in the wrong section feel free to move it mods, but just wanted to get this off my chest.

    Basically, I am starting to regret the uni I am at, feeling like I should have aimed higher, and could have got it. I see that most people are at higher universities and I feel a massive sense of regret. I got ABB for my grades, yet my course only required BBC, and I know at the time I wanted it, when I chose it, but now I'm here I'm feeling almost constant regret....

    I feel like I'm worth more than this, that I could have gone to somewhere better, and its not like I can talk to any staff at uni about this as that would be a bad move Jokes aside, I really am feeling worried, about my future careers etc. And the personal side of it, and the connotations people have of the university, which would reflect on me, especially as my uni is in an Oxbridge city.......

    Does anyone else feel like this? If so, how do you cope? Also, what should I do?

    Thanks in advance

    You could either consider a transfer to year two if your courses are similar enough... if not, drop out and reapply.

    Is it the university's place in the rankings that are getting you down, or the competence of your colleagues?

    If the former, don't bother moving. If the latter, get your application for a transfer in.

    Both! Which is why it's difficult, it's so easy for everyone to say 'quit' but in practice it's hard. I just don't want to do a transfer and then regret it. Do you know what I mean? Things like this are a big decision, some may not see that but it is to me.... sigh.....

    Is your University Oxford Brookes by any chance?
    I wanted to apply there because the city of Oxford is really nice but then I thought it was aiming too low so I left it.

    Erm, not necessarily, I suppose some must be, but generally the people I talk to are on my level. I'm starting to believe it must be the course, as to be honest I don't have any passion for it, and I chose it as I knew I had to have a course to study at uni .... meh.

    If that's true then why on earth so people tell us otherwise? (people being schools etc)

    Also to everyone, thanks for all your replies, though I'm now thinking its the course I don't like! Think I need to do some serious thinking and talking to people. I just don't want to be seen as 'the person that couldnt hack it'...


    Does anyone have any advice on choosing a course? Because as sad as it sounds I don't feel like I have a passion for anything at all, yet I'd like a degree because I do enjoy learning, just not this course
