    hi i have almost finished my first year at university and i found out that i got 33 marks in two modules....in a course where you are only allowed to fail one module. im sure i am going to fail, university i have always wanted to do but i cant afford to throw more money at it as my background isn't great as my family don't have money. throughout my first year i have slowly lost interest in my course but im not someone to give up. i have this thing where many subjects interest me so its hard to figure out what i want to do. what does anyone recommend change courses and start again or quite uni and just work??? any help

    If I was in your position I would quit and get a job or an apprenticeship. Doing something of the sake of it will not benefit you, and if you've already p much failed the first year then I can't really see things drastically changing for you in the next 2 years. 1 year of debt is easier to pay off than 3 after all. Also if you earn something like less that £24,000 they don't make you pay it pack until you earn over that (I think - something like that) so you wouldn't have to worry about dealing with uni payments if the job you get initially isn't well salaried.

    Good luck and I hope things work themselves out for you <3
