I am a current medical student at oxford. I am not sure I want to continue doing this degree, I am firstly not very good at it (my memory is poor), and my interests have changed since I last applied. What are the chances they would let me switch to something that more closely aligns to my current interests (mainly maths).

Only your university can tell what is possible. I don't know if Oxford accepts internal transfers, or whether there is a cut-off point.

But how do I even find out. It seems like a bad idea for instance talking to my moral tutor who also happens to be my pharmacology professor if he finds out I don't actually want to study his subject.

are there any other advisors around? perhaps asking a maths professor might help?

Go directly to student support services if you think there might be a conflict of interest.

Is that what people typically in my position do? I don't know anyone who has switched subject although I know it is possible...
