    Right, so here's the deal:
    I worked hard for my GCSEs and got good grades but took the foot right off the gas for A level. I got A in English Language, C in History and E in Physics. I just finished my first year doing Music Technology at Leeds Beckett. Music has always been a passion of mine, but I didn't enjoy the course and had no motivation to do well so I did the bare minimum in that first year.

    I've been told by so many people my entire life that I would be good at law, and I have a large interest in the subject. But at the time of deciding for uni I was still in this lazy, unmotivated state so I chose music tech, (no disrespect to anyone doing music tech).

    I want to work hard and get my life back on track but I feel like it's too late as I got meh A levels and probably a 2.1 or 2.2 in my first year doing Music Tech, not an academic subject. My options are to continue Music Tech and forget this law idea, finish Music Tech and try and do a law conversion, or drop out, wait a year and try and get into a good law school with my not good A levels.

    It's eating me up at the moment, I don't want to carry on doing a subject that doesn't push or motivate me, but I also don't want to commit to swapping to Law and end up at a uni that's not amazing and get a mediocre job based on the fact I flunked my exams.... can anyone offer some advice?
