    Hi all,
    I have spent my first half term at college studying Maths, Politics and History A-Levels.
    I have just come back after the half term break and have thought back on the first half term and realised how much I despise and hate Maths. It is so boring to me, and in literally every aspect it is totally different to my other subjects. I have spent the last week feeling really unhappy and depressed about it.
    So, I have decided that I think I want to change. I want to change my Maths to Law - I know there will be catch up to do but I am happy (I can be dedicated to studying). I have informed my tutor at college and he says he will discuss it (he seems pretty supportive).
    Does anyone know anything about how much catch up there will be to do in Law? I have a friend who is studying it who has emailed me some resources and notes already which is great, but I just want to make sure I am not signing up for something totally unachievable.
    Thanks

    i dont really know about how much law you will need to catch up on (probably just a ton of facts similar to History), but i just thought i would let you know that I am also changing my economics to physics and i also know there will be a lot to catch up on so ur not the only one, also it will more beneficial in the long run , can i ask also what did u say to persuade them to let you change as i am going to talk to my tutor tomorrow about it?

    I just told my tutor the truth basically - I hate one of the subjects I am studying, it has been making me feel unhappy and stressed and that I just think it would be beneficial for me to make a change now so I can feel better and enjoy myself more. I got my parents on side too, so that if I do have to battle with some imposing Head of XYZ I have some support. I just think that they should have some experience in these sorts of matters, so I'm sure if they have even an ounce of empathy they'll budge and let you change

    Similar to what I said to RS really, just tell them the truth and they should be willing to oblige if they are a decent person. I also have discovered that with Law you only have to answer 3/8 sections on one of the exam papers so I might not even need to catch up with loads of work; perhaps you could see if there is anything similar in Photography that could be a bit of a mitigating circumstance?
