    I do biomedical science and they changed everything gor this year and moved all exams on the computer and i prefer working on paper, so i failed my first exam because i couldnt underline the key words and everyone else got As or Bs and its worth 8% of the module. We have to do a presentation on a topic on anything in science and in partners, the teacher said our topic is too simple and my partner is so ****ing irritating she never turns up amd she rushed though the presantation even though its worth 25%, I hate working with her I want to drop out but my parents arnt letting me and my alevels arn’t the best. I tried emailing my personal titor to see her but shes never in office. Please help is it too late to switch courses to law maybe

    Depending when your term started then I think its almost certainly too late to switch and they may not have space for you either. Talk to the Law department and just enquire if there was any chance. Your weak A levels dont help and they may not be sufficient.

    Switching onto computer sounds a strange reason to quite your degree.

    As for your study partner, then talk to them and keep a diary of complaints where you feel they arent pulling their weight. Go and speak to your department, the head if needed to point out your tutor isnt available and you need to speak to someone.

    Perhaps you can do the presentation on your own? If I was in the situation then I would just prepare it myself ready to go.

    Also go and speak to a student advisor.

    The exam wasn’t on word, it was on a different programme that prevents you accesseing any other app on the computer, why would they put an exam on word, seriously?

    Then you can raise that point with whoever you talk to at department. Dont you have a lecturer you like or feel you can talk to?

    Ive given you enough advice to help resolve your dilemma. Think solutions and not problems.

    Because ive told you what you need to do and how to resolve the situation. What more do you expect? I dont see anyone else who took the time to offer you advice, plus it happens to be the right advice.

    If the person who is there isnt available then talk to someone who is.

    If its been two weeks then why havent you talked to an advisor in the student union?
