Do not do Social Policy or Sociology. Trust me, they stink. If you're thinking seriously about going into social work, a degree in that would be far more appropriate anyway. I have no idea what they're like though, so I'm afraid I'm no help on that score.
I honestly don't know. My head hurts from all the thinking and decision making. How would I even apply via UCAS again? It was easier when I was in school, it was all sorted for me. I think this is just something that crossed my mind but won't actually happen. Everyone is trying to talk me out of it anyway.
First off, unless you really don't think the course is for you there's not much point in dropping out. Various aspects of your degree might be kind of boring or challenging but that's the general nature of them. I considered dropping out in the 1st year, but got a 1st overall =)
I agree Wowza, dropping out should be the last resort, its a touch decision to make and not something you should rush into (well done on the first btw!). Though if you just know that your on the wrong degree course, why stay? In my case it was nothing to with it being challenging or boring. I wanted a challenge and didnt expect law to be easy, but now after eight weeks on the course I know even if I completed first year I wouldn't stay on for second and third. It makes sense for me to leave now.
The course isn't too challenging or hard etc. If anything it's quite easy. Doesn't stimulate my mind. There's a lot of back story as to how i ended up to leeds and doing this course but generally i now think it was completely the wrong thing to do. I suppose, instead of living in regret i want to change my ideas and have a shot at doing something i really enjoy. Who knows though. May as well just carry on and figure out what to do later.
Im doing sociology, and really want to change my course, it is really boring and to be honest way too easy! Plus its all a load of rubbish really!
Hi, I am desperately in need of advice. I wanted to do Pharmacy (MPharm) at University.
I applied to the following Universities:
I successfully passed my Interviews and all 5 universities offered me a place for this year.
I choose reading as my firm and kingston as my insurance.
However I did poorly at my A levels this year and was unable to get the required grades to get in.
I went through clearing and managed to secure a place at London Met University , course: BioChemistry (Bsc).
I still want to do Pharmacy. My questions are what are my options and if i do well in my first year in BioChemistry, will I be able to transfer to another University doing Pharmacy degree.
If not, if I finish my BioChemistry degree and get a 2.1, will I be able to do a Pharmacy Master degree. And if I do, is it the same as doing a Undergraduate Pharmacy Degree.
