    I am currently doing my A2's and are studing Maths, Physics and Psychology.

    I have applied for psychology at university and accepted an offer from The University of Kent (AAA). I am now having second thoughts about the subject.

    I am working towards an A* in maths fairly comfortably, however I am struggling to motivate myself to do work for psychology and I am getting worried that I have chosen the wrong subject because I just can't be bothered to plan essays and memories so many studies.

    Is there any way to change my course without taking a gap year and re-applying next year? Or should I continue on with psychology and hope it gets better (or I get more motivated) at uni. Any help/advice would be great

    Yes there's definitely a way to change courses without a gap year. You can get put into extra and find another course that way and if that doesnt work there's clearing after results day

    My advice would be that there really isn't anything to worry about. The universe has a funny way of sorting things out and you will do what's right for you.

    Speaking from experience there really isn't a way to smoothly transition unless the universities are willing to communicate and the course is exactly the same.....

    I simply waited a year and then changed....you might feel that a year is massive but it really isn't.
