    So I'm going into my third year doing a computer course I'm not saying where but it's not a good university and I did well in my first yr I got a first but I only got a 2.2 in my second yr and had to resit one of my exams which is my whole degree so I was going to change course but now I feel like I'm not gonna do any better in the other course and its not what I want to do..I don't like my course but I don't know what else I'd do because I don't have good GCSE's or A levels and I don't just want to work in a shop or do an apprenticeship. So should I stay even though I feel like I'm not learning anything and getting help off my friends or quit and just get a job??

    You've done 2 years and the academic year is so short you'll be done in no time. It doesnt matter what your degree is in, having one is better than not. Obviously if you are not comitted there is no point but you'll be kicking yourself this time next year if you dont. Why not just suspend or defer now and get a job for a year?

    I had to suspend last year (sfe problem) and only job I could get was in care. Spend a year wiping arses and changing cathaters and you'll be running back to uni for some imtellectual stimulation.
