Hey everyone,

I currently hold a place for doing a Childrens Nursing degree. However, I am not 100% certain on it like I was. Do I await for results day? This is because I'd like to switch to a different course within the same uni but unsure if I can until I receive my grades.

Any help is appreciated, very nervous and feeling sorta trapped.

I'd be telling them that you want to swap now if its the same university you want to be that, there's likely a waiting list for nursing so someone else would appreciate the place.

Do you mean you'd need to wait until results day to know if you have the grades for the other course?

It may still be worth discussing your situation with the uni now- what's the course you would like to switch to?

you can wait until results day, mind if I ask why you're considering swapping and what you're thinking of swapping to? I dropped out of a mental health nursing degree after 6 months because it wasn't right for me but I know I wouldn't have known that without trying, although I had no doubts before I started the course.

Basically, If I wasn't to do nursing, I'm interested in switching to a marketing degree at the same university. However, I'm unsure if I can meet the entry requirements & as I need an A in business however for nursing I only would need a B. I'm just feeling overall lost university wise :/

That's interesting to know & I'm interested in switching to a marketing degree. Id ideally like to give Nursing a go as I was quite set on the idea etc and future plans. However, now I'm having doubts suddenly and if I was to apply for another course next year after trying nursing, it would be harder to get into and id have to take a year out. X

marketing degrees aren't too hard to get into as far as I'm aware, you need to see if you can figure out exactly why you're having the doubts if you can.

Thank you, Its just the university I'm still wanting to go to is Russell group and not really wanting to go anywhere else, therefore I'm ever so worried about getting in through clearing because of my results etc. X

the Russell group is more a marketing thing really, but yes you can hang on until you get your results to make a decision.

Getting into a RG uni won't matter for nursing but if you do want to switch to a different course after you get your results, it should be possible in Clearing. There will be lots of people around on TSR on results day to ask for help if you need it

If you're feeling lost then I think it's important to think about why you feel lost.

Do you feel sure about marketing as a choice, and it's just your grades you are worried about? Or are you unsure about both courses?

Switching your course at your firm choice does NOT use clearing. If you ring up and ask about applying for marketing through clearing then that will confuse and delay things.

When you ring open your conversation with “I have [uni] as my firm for children’s nursing and want to change to marketing”.
