    Currently in my second year of studying (Joint honours Biology/Psychology) and have completely lost all motivation to attend anything at university. My modules were chosen for me and I found very quickly that I had studied all the content before at college - and in more depth too. Anyone else in the same situation?

    I was in the same situation a few years ago. I went on to uni after college and lost all motivation and stopped going in. I eventually dropped out.

    I think the question you have to ask yourself is would you be happy with this degree. Is it what you want to do with your life? Education and work isn't always going to be fun but if it's something you're passionate about and know you want to do, it's worth it to try and pull through.

    On the other hand, if you know it's maybe not for you and it's making you unhappy it may be best to talk to an advisor at the uni - just try not to make any rushed decisions. I wish you the best of luck

    I do right now and often I think we work too hard or we do it pointlessly and all we get is a piece of paper saying you know so and so... and most jobs don't even meet up to the work we put in or what we know, i.e. low salaries and dull job experiences. I'm considering doing apprenticeships which gives both salary, qualifications and experience without a 5 figure sum of debt.
