Doubts about my course

    • Thread Starter

    I've only just started college (around 3 weeks ago) and already I'm regretting about choosing my current course. It looked really interesting on the college website so I applied for it without a second thought. I didn't go to any of the tester days as my parents never found the time to take me as they work pretty long hours. Now I'm only kicking myself for not persuading my parents to take me as all of this could've been avoided. I'm not finding my course interesting at all. I dread going there and wasting my time as I know I'm not going use any of this information in the future. I really want to change course but I think its too late plus my mum would KILL ME if she found out. She spent £115 on uniform for that course for me and I'll just be throwing it away.

    If it was possible for me to change courses this year, I wouldn't know what course to actually do. I have got quite a lot of interests but I don't know which course would be for me. I've only told my friends about this and they're stumped on what to do to help me.

    Please help? I would be so grateful if anyone could give me advice. Thank you! ^.^

    Have you tried talking to your college about it?

    No I haven't. I have no idea who to turn to about this situation. I know it's probably the best thing to do is to talk to my college about my concern but again, I don't know who can actually help me
