Hi Everyone, After browsing for a bit and finding this forum to have some very smart and helpful people, I have decided to post my query here. After completing my A-Levels in English, Maths and Phsyics (U.K. Education) where I got a B,A and A respectively. Thereafter I worked in odd jobs for 2 years before deciding to pursue a Meng in Electrical/Electronic Engineering to improve my career prospects. I am now 21 and have just completed the 1st year of my EE course, and another 3 years of torture awaits. Overall I have mangaged to do well in all aspects of the course, gaining an average of 67% for the whole year, but every week has been a struggle. My social life is now worse than when I was working, I have little time for any extracurricular activities and most importantly, I no longer have the passion and desire I had for Engineering as before. I have three options now. 1. Start again on a New Course, first choice is a joint honours degree in Physics and Philosophy. Both subjects interest me a lot and I still love Physics. I have enjoyed learning about the scientific priciples behind EE but have struggled with the engineering aspect. The physics department is willing to accept me into this course too. 2. Force myself and continue in the currrent EE course, hopefully keeping the current grade. I have been advised by the careers office that with a good EE degree I can move into other fields not related to Engineering. 3. Leave University. I really really do not want to take this option. I've been struggling with the decision for the past 3 weeks and have about a week before the Physics & Philosophy option closes and I'm stuck with 2.
