    I feel adamant about this course. I have to enrol on Monday - I move in on Saturday. But I feel so scared. I'm scared the course isn't right/it's not what I desire.I feel like A Levels have sucked the passion out of me for these subjects. I am scared of seminars, lectures, the independence.. I am sorry if it sounds pathetic. I wasn't planning moving and after results, I had no choice! I just don't want to hate my course. I am not 100% sure if it's for me. I don't like sources, whereas, some people I have spoke to are 10000% sure and that's got me stressing. If I did take a gap, I would still be indecisive and I would find it a waste of time, so I won't bother. But I guess I am asking... Is it right to feel like this, to feel unsure and scared? I guess I can drop out before Saturday but I don't want to waste a year and I wouldn't probably want to go to uni after a year out, haha.

    First of all, don't say that being afraid of moving into uni is pathetic, because trust me, it isn't. Everyone is afraid of giving such a big step at first, but once it truly begins to sink in you realize that this was one of best things you could do with your life. With regards to having second thoughts on your course of study, well, all students do so at the moment. Some, like me, realize that the course they originally choose was not the one which best suited their needs or wants and just transfer; others, decide to remain in the course they decided upon, even though they don't like it. Look, don't drop out before starting, because otherwise you will regret it. Give your course a chance and if you don't like it, you can always ask to transfer onto another course during the first weeks of the year.
