    Hello, I'm currently a 2nd year doing a BSc and I've repeated 1st year, not doing great in 2nd either. Basically I have no chance of passing and I've wasted 3 years of my life and finance.
    I know why, I have issues and asking Uni for help is not an option.
    I do feel gutted, but I've made my peace with it and I will not continue.
    What can I do now?
    I did the course because I liked the subject matter but the teaching system at Uni is just not made for me.
    I thought about going to college and get an HND in Applied Science.. Can I do that? since I have passed 1st year would I go straight to the 2nd year of an HND
    IS there a chance of getting a job with that? or do something completely different with the 2 years finance I have left? I wish I could just go off into the world of work and be done with all this faff, but can't do anything without qualifications, right?

    I dropped out due to anxiety (although you've done incredibly well compared to me - I lasted 6 weeks and have taken so long to recover to a level where I'm hoping to continue my study). I've now decided to do a HND at my local college with the possibility to top up to a BA degree but without the pressure. It seems to be a good way to become employable in that it gives you skills that you can directly use in the workplace. And you should be able to transfer to year two but it's best to check with the individual college you're hoping to attend so they can make sure you've covered the relevant topics in the first year of your degree. You can also transfer credits from year 1 of study to get you onto year 2 of an Open Uni degree. That way you could study from home and work at the same time if you wanted to.
