Who has done this/considered it?
I'm halway into my second year and I've been certain for nearly a year that this place isn't for me. I dont like some of the teachers, the majority of the students on my course are morons, and I just dont feel challeneged at all in the way I did at school. The majority of seminars I just come out feeling bored and uninetersted.
I could have dropped out after my first year but I didnt think it would do me any good. To apply to a 'better' uni would have been silly - I was rejected from brzzle, oxford and durham first time round. Equally, I know that englit is the subject I want to be doing, so surely that smacks of a lack of dedication on my part?
So now I'm halfway through the second and I cant see the use in dropping out now - its not as if I can start a new course. Do I keep going until graduation?
Also, my disillusionment has definitely affected my marks - I just dont care about doing well here, which when it comes to academic matters, is SO unlike me. I got essays back this week and last and got 2.2s and 2.1s when I know that I can get firsts - I know I can do it, its just the apathy I feel towards my course that is making me lazy, subsequently I dont try, so I feel worse etc... its a vey vicious circle. Note: I am not stupid. I know this. I'm just lazy about things when I dont care about them.
Oh Dis, what to do? I would really appreciate some advice on this matter. I know my ramblings havent been very eloquent, so if perhaps your replies could be, that would be ace :)
