    I am second year law at an RG and struggling immensely. I'm pretty sure I've srewed up my January exams which count for 1/6 of my overall degree.

    I've found uni hard since the start , despite making good friends. I just can't settle.
    I find the course absolutely impossible and I'm wondering if I should seek employment now as opposed to inevitably get a 2.2 in law?

    I feel so depressed all the time these days.

    What you can do is go and talk to student support as well as your tutor. Find out the reasons for things going wrong? is is dislike of the course, student life, things in personal life? have you seen your GP for anything stress or anxiety related? maybe you are just a worrier?

    Rather than leave you could suspend your studies if you cna persuade them there are good reasons. get your head together and decide if you want to go back.

    Your results and grade really matter and you only get one chance, so a suspension of studies is better than mediocre results.

    Have you looked into what you might do ?

    If it were me i would get mu head down and work hard, but I cant guage how mch you are being realistic and how much is just worry. You have plenty of time to make big improvements if you really want to.

    I've had problems from the outset and have kept my personal tutor informed. I've tried counselling but it didn't help. There have been numerous specific problems .

    .
    I find the course incredibly hard. I did well in my a levels and in all honesty didn't expect to struggle thus much. I got a 58 average first year .

    You are going to have to pros and cons both options. Youve been a good student before, so you need to elarn how to study smart, do extra exam papers, make good notes, really get to grips with it. My point stands if you suspend then you can go back more easily. You dont have to return.

    Year 2 resuls are almsot the most important. Go and talk to your careers counsellor and look at your options. I wouldnt give it up unless you really want to.
