This wasnt supposed to be a gap year, but the course wasnt for me so left uni and have just worked since and am utterly fed up to be honest. I miss studying so much, but am so worried about starting again in september because i feel so un-motivated. AARRRGGGGHHHH just needed to rant really :tsr2:

I understand, I've applied to uni for Economics and now I'm not sure it is the course for me, maybe PPE is better?
TSR doesn't allow you to spam but can't do anything if we create a threat just for spamming.

Do you need to re-apply through UCAS extra or just go back to the uni you were in and do a different course?

Just see it as an opportunity to earn some money. Good luck!

I am in exactly the same situation. Dropped out at end of October and have worked for 3 months. Decided I've had enough and am going to quit my job after only working for 3 months. Made about 2 k which should help me out a bit at uni. Going to go abroad and live with a family member for a few months and spend the rest of my summer vacation here

I dropped out three years ago and I've been working full time since in a job that completely turns my brain to mush and stresses me out big time at the same time... 8 months to go... 8 months to go....

Wow suek, how did you manage working for 3 years! I worked for 3 months and gave up, and my job involves sitting on front of a computer!

Because I have nothing else to do and for the few things that are challenging and fun, they are well worth putting on the ol' CV etc. It's worked well for me, I guess, since I got offers from all the unis I've applied to Quitting now (it's crossed my mind, there's only so many times I can make tea when I don't even drink the stuff) would mean hassle of finding a new short-term job, too, as I do need money.

But I've got a taste of it now.. what it can be like in the world.. actually liking your job and doing something meaningful, I can't wait to get out there and do it.

I work in an independent computer shop, which means I do everything from handle the accounts and customer repair tags etc to being involved in repairs both in the workshop and on-site (this is the part that I enjoy the most, and that 'looks' the best, along with generally serving customers who often don't have the first clue about computers), so a lot of networking and troubleshooting.

I also make the tea and the lunch and don't get a break to go out and about as we eat here :P

I've gained a lot of skills here definitely, and there are good days, but the majority are mind-numbing. Not to mention computer retail is depressing and even repair work is drying up due to the prices coming down so much. Mostly it's all cleaning up people's viruses.

blondevalkyrie - don't rush into anything! September isn't that far away if whatever you are doing then is what you've got your heart set on.

Are there any short evening courses you could do to keep you occupied? Maybe Open Uni modules, anything like that?

My local adult college has some evening courses which start in Spring which are just short things, nothing like A Levels or anything but, just something to do.

Notts is cool. You sure can have a better lifestyle there on a students budget than London.
