Unhappy NBS Woes

Hi all,

Am studying Biz in NBS Yr 1. Find it hard to cope as I do not have a background in econs nor statistics. (Came from poly bio course) Should I change course ASAP or just stick through the 3 year programme and hope for a 2nd class honors?

Most people does not have background in what they are doing either and I believe business module are much easier than what is taught in engineering.

If you still have interest in the course, believe in yourself that you can do it.

Interest is the main reason why I'm thinking of leaving the course. I wasn't thinking about what I liked doing when I applied but rather what career prospects I could potentially get if I studied biz

I think interest is really the factor that can sustain you in the long run. I took some business core mods with the NBS peeps (my major is in engineering though) but mostly i can only do well in modules like FM, Deriavatives, etc, because it is closer to what I'm interested in and is the closest I can get to my engineering mindset on optimisation and problem solving.

It is really gut wrenching to be involved in something you don't like or have zero inclination.

Hope it helps, good luck!
