    i recently got ma results for ma first year and i basically have only passed two pf ma modules... i knw its bad... i am curently doing, i went into law after doing it at a levels, but wen i began uni it was nothing as i expected i really stareted to loose passion for the subejct after realising how hard it is to pursue a carrer in law... so i was really put off about the course.... other than law i really would of liked to do something with intirior deisgn or architectur... and now i feel like i should have done them instead.

    i have been offerd the chance to resit my modules, for law, but i do not want to carry on with law as i would like to change into something else such as architectur or interior design.

    if i was to change would they take into consideration my first year, and if i was to transfer unis and change course would that be possible, i am really confused and i do not know were to start.

    I haven't been in your position, but I'd be inclined to say that they wouldn't take into account your module results since law results would not be directly relevant to interior design or architecture. However, you may receive special consideration as a student who has already completed the first year of another course.

    Hope this helps!

    I suppose you may gain more credit by having passed more of your first year modules, but then it may be a case of struggling on with an undesirable subject for you for a year.

    It ultimately comes down to the decision between extra credit and waiting a year or not - best of luck!

    If I'm honest, I don't think I'm the person to ask here; if I had to suggest something, though, I'd suggest that since there's little point staying where you don't want to be.

    I think you should consider taking a year out to collect your thoughts and then reapply. You would be in a stronger position for reapplying if you did resit your modules and pass them but you are very unlikely to qualify for year 2 entry even for a course in Law even if you do. You are looking at starting again, which, since Student Finance only allows one false start, means that it's really important to get it right this time. There's really no rush. You could look around in Clearing and might get something - but the risk of making another 'wrong' choice is high. Not good for the confidence or the bank balance.
