    I've just started at Durham doing History and Politics. I had an idea that I wanted to change to single-honours Politics before I arrived and the first couple of weeks have confirmed that. I've asked about a transfer but they've said the core module I'd have to change on to is full and not being able to get onto this means I wouldn't be able to transfer at the start of second year either. I don't particularly want to drop out - I'm sure I can pass the History modules I just wouldn't be completely happy on them. I've not said to them that I'd drop out if I couldn't change but would that make them reconsider at all?? Any general advice??

    if its full its full-I don't think its possible for them to move you there, why would they lie? make them aware that if a space opens up u wanna move onto that course- theres a lot of time for someone else to drop out
    as long as you don't lose all motivation for history, and end up failing, it doesn't sound like the end of the world which is nice for you
