    Okay. I am in my first year of psychology and i realise before Christmas that i really do not like my course so i re-applied for mental health nursing through UCAS. i have not been accepted and now i dont know what to do. I cannot drop out my parents have made it clear that i am not welcome back home if i do as i moved to about 4 hours away and i had no choice but to go to uni straight away. i dont know what to do as i cant get a full time job without a degree. and part time jobs do not pay enough to live off. What should i do? Also i got really bad grades at A-Level resulting in 160 UCAS total

    You can certainly get a full time job without a degree. Why do you hate your course? Have you spoken to your tutor about whether you'll enjoy later years? Or if you can transfer to a different subject? You applied to this course for a reason :yes:.

    Are you parents doing the thing whre they scare you into carrying on but don't mean it? Might be worth sitting them down and explaining to them that you hate it and why?


    I'd start with uni - can you find a way to enjoy it or remember why you started it. Work out why you hate it.
    Can you transfer to something else?

    Then parents - if you explain to them your situation will they change their mind?

    Then a job - if you really can't stomach it or move home, start looking for full time work.

    Don't 'drop out', change your direction. Start applying for jobs. When you have something lined up and something resembling a plan, go to your parents and explain it. I did the exact same thing. Prove that you're not a quitter or work-shy. Tell them that everything is lined up and explain why it would be better for you.
