    It's not the work itself, it's the pressure and the absolute blind terror of failure that some people manage to instil in themselves.

    i don't think that's true; while i reckon i worked reasonably hard last term, i don't think i worked any harder/felt any more pressured than friends from other colleges, although i suppose it varies between individuals.
