Leaving university after the first semester Watch

I got a place on my current course through clearing, and I'm basically not enjoying the course and feel that it was a poor choice that was not well suited to me.

As I understand it, the first semester is worth 30 ECTS. Would I be able to take these with me, as it were, if I left before the end of the year? Also, would 30 ECTS be worth anything in terms of applying to another university?

My A Levels weren't very good and frankly I was lucky to get this course, even though I'm not enjoying it.

Would 30 ECTS count for anything in addition to rather poor A Levels?

What course are you on and what course do you want to be on? If they're completely unrelated then it's unlikely you're going to be able to transfer them to a new course. Phone uni's you're wanting to go to, if your A levels aren't as good as they possibly could have been and you need them to get onto a course you really want to do (rather than settling for anything just to go to uni), then I'd suggest going back to college for a year/revising hard yourself+entering resits as an external candidate.
