    I'm studying history and at my uni we had to pick some other subjects to study in our first year. I chose philosophy even though I've never read a philosophical text and never even spoke about it with anyone before. Just vaguely got a wikipedia understanding of Camus and a couple other existentialists.

    Anyway despite this..I think it seems to come quite natural. People who seem to know a lot more than me, talk very cleverly about it and make me feel a bit stupid and who also work on their essays for weeks seem to struggle to get a mid 2.1. As it's my 'extra' subject I've been doing the minimal reading for the essays and wrote them the morning the essay is due but get mid 60s. I'm just wondering if I should continue with it, as I'm really beginning to enjoy it. Even though It makes me feel so nervous because everyone says really clever things in the seminars and I'm just like :unsure:.

    I'm just concerned with making such a big change to my degree, especially as philosophy is a bit less usual and obvious than history. What do you think?
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
