I'm currently in my first year studying English literature, I am thinking of changing course because I am not enjoying it.
For A-Levels I did and achieved:
Fine Art - grade A
English Combined - grade B
Philosophy and Religion. - grade C
I think I would be suited to a subject that is more stimulating and creative. With this degree course, there is a lot of reading. It is not a creative subject more academic and studious. It also involves a lot of historical knowledge, and in college, I dropped history for philosophy because it wasn't really me. I achieved the best grade in fine art and it was mainly drawing, taking pictures and editing them, some painting. I did actually visit a Fine art degree course at this same uni which is doing English, and they said it was mad with exhibitions, 'it was crazy' a student there said. I was also thinking of changing to illustration, but there was someone on TV who said it is hard to find work for it unless you get a good opportunity. There is a fine art painting course near where I live, I wouldn't have to catch the train to it, I am good at drawing/illustration as well and don't know whether I want to specialise in just painting alone. The drive with that course is to become a painter or open up your own workshops etc...Also, I have to travel to the university I am at now by train and I have been here 6 months now and I hate feeling like I am continuing wasting my time at something I don't think I'm loving.
Another idea is just to stay on this course until the first year which ends around June and decide then, but that wouldn't leave a lot of time left in picking out a new course for the following September.
