It's not drastic, but you do need to be SURE about your change of direction.

You will have to drop out and reapply. This has financial implications. You can only do this once and still get full funding from SFE. You will also not be funded if you need to repeat a year due to failing exams etc.

Oh wow I see and you know how you said drop and reapply will I have to wait another year? And are they strict one which subject you want to take or would they let you pick any course? And how quick would I reapply? And is the fungicidal implications stressful In a sense I have to wait for funding sorry for all the questions :/

You would have to reapply for september 2014 entry, yes. Universities don't let people transfer onto unrelated courses in the middle of the year, as they will have missed a lot of course content. You can't just pick any course, you would still have to meet the entry requirements of a course to transfer onto it. If you are transfering to a very similar course (e.g. biology to biochemistry) the process might be a bit easier, and you might not have to formally reapply via UCAS.

As you would be reapplying next year, you would apply for funding as normal, so this would be less of an issue.

It happens quite frequently, some people change into other related courses and some people appreciate that what they originally chose just didn't meet their expectations.

I can't add more than SlowlorisIncognito has, which has been excellent advice. It's fine to do, just try and be sure of yourself and do whatever you do for the right reasons.
