    Unmotivated? If you're changing the course you're doing say it was because you didn't enjoy it, but now you're doing something you know you'll enjoy you'll be alot more motivated.

    Whoever gave you "slow to adapt to uni life" deserves a pat on the back. :p:

    Rather than replace laziness with another word, trying and spin it a little...:rolleyes:

    Talk about how you found it difficult making the transition to uni life. Moving away from home, a lot more independent study etc.

    Don't just say you couldn't be arsed.

    Why not leave the academic world for a year or so and work? How can you continue applying for a new course when you've just spent thousands on nothing due to your lazyness!?

    Go and get a job, become organised, experience the real world alongside a workforce of adults, drop the laziness....it's as simple as that?

    This! Just say you lacked motivation due to disinterest for the subject area/course/realised it was wrong for you. Or that you weren't ready.

    I said that the course I was doing was not what I was expecting and thus found it very difficult.
