    This has been happening to me I always find myself looking at compltley diffrent courses to the one I have applied. I think what is constantly going through my head is am doing the right thing and then end up going in circles and doing nothing and just feeling unsure and in doubt. I do not know if any one else gets this way. I just do not feel like anything sits right with me. I always seem like I find something but always find a problem to doubt my choice. It must seems like Im crazy but I just need some advise. it would really help

    It's quite normal to get some degree of cold feet when you are making such a big decision. However, it's up to you to decide whether this is significant enough to make you want to reconsider your decision. It might be worth going over what made you choose this course in the first place, and also what you want to do afterwards.

    The school system (and often parents too) expect people to know their entire career plans at age 17/18. Lots of times, this is impossible. There is absolutely no shame in taking some time to decide.

    Remember that you've got plenty of time as it stands. You can continue to pull out at any point quite easily with a quick email up until you make any serious commitment (e.g. signing an accommodation contract or enrolling at the university).

    i get you. sometimes i do it just to see what kind of things they teach in uni in general. but what helps if youre unsure is to think up all the positive things about your course like why you like it, what path it could lead you to and if that interests you etc.to reconfirm why you chose what you chose. sometimes we forget our reasonings in the vast of opinions on ''course superiority'' ''elitism'' ''top unis'' etc, so it helps to remind ourselves.

    I think that's a good ideas I'm going to make a list of serious ideas and put the plus points beside them. In the short of it i don't think I have enough base knowledge about my course to warrant doing it. While they say they will get everyone to same standard
    (Due to it being an uncommon thing and hardly any a levels of said course being there). But the majority of people I bet will have done said a level. I just feel like I'm going to be completey outclassed.
