Narrative:The student pilot joined the airfield circuit from the east. As he was about to enter the airfield circuit on a base leg for the paved runway 31R, the controller announced a change of runway. The student understood that runway 31L was now in use. Instead of turning downwind for runway 13L, he continued toward runway 31L. The controller cleared him to cross-cut the centrelines and merge downwind for runway 13R. The student explained that he was turning too early on the base leg. Feeling too high on short final, he applied a steep nose-down attitude. The nose gear struck the runway and broke off. The propeller touched the runway. The aircraft went off the right side of the runway.
