I'm currently studying Physics at The University of Warwick. I have been on my course for a week and I'm certain I want to leave. My A-Level grades are A*AB in Maths, Chemistry and Physics.I want to change my course re-apply through UCAS. I want to study Economics hopefully at one of the following institutions, UCL, Durham, Nottingham, Bristol and Bath. During my time out I plan to take up Further maths. I have to hopes of going into IB/Consultancy. I have no idea how to begin the process or if its worth it. Would it be worth leaving and do I stand a chance in getting offers from the universities stated above. How would I begin the leaving process and how would my student finance be affected.
Would I be disadvantaged in my application?
With A*AB you don't meet the standard requirements for UCL, Durham, Nottingham, Bristol and Bath which is A*AA at most unis apart from Nottingham where its A*AA-AAA, and no A*AB is not equivalent to AAA. Although Bristol do give out AAB offers for those who are underprivileged if you meet the criteria though. So it would be very foolish to quit your current course to apply for the uni's you've mentioned - one or two maybe as high risk choices, but most should be unis you meet or exceed the requirements for.

You'd need to email admissions and ask if they would consider A-Levels taken in more than 2 years

Despite being to completely new A-Levels? Ok. Would me have gone to University or a week impact my application and put me at a disadvantage?

Warwick is very highly desired for IB too - more so than some of those you mentioned. Not sure why you'd want to leave Warwick...

You having already been to uni for a bit shouldn't matter, but a few of the select unis like the required grades to be achieved in 2 years to show that you can handle the workload. Certainly a while ago UCL said grades not achieved in 2 years wouldn't make for competitive application but you need to email and see what their current policy is now.

There were extenuating circumstances during my exams.
In that case they might be more lenient, but as I said you would need to check with admissions

Offer was A*AA but cause I told them my ECs I got in with AABB.
Worth a try

Would I have to get a new reference from my original sixth form tutor? I shall email them immediately. Thanks for your quick response.
