Currently i'm in 2nd year architecture in Bolton St, and I am seriously doubting my suitability to the course, also the fear of dropping out after 4 years and not even getting a piece of paper is always at the back of my mind.
In saying this I did reasonably well in first year getting 60% in my studio work, which would have been better than average for the year, while i managed the subjects quite well.
I would like to hear from someone who has had the same thoughts or fears during their time as a student!

However if after you have done a few years and the mania still hasn't kicked in, content yourself with the fact that ,if nothing else, architecture is a very good design degree and many qualified architects end up in the most unusual professions-from politian to artist. It teaches you design appreciation,inititive,judgement, lateral thinking etc,etc-in fact it is one of the few courses available which broadens your field of knowledge rather than specialising into obscurity.
