    Do you attend all your lectures/classes?
    Do you always give you work in on time?
    Are you an effcient worker or do you leave everything to the last minute?
    Do you do all the subject reading you are supposed to?
    What are your grades like?
    How well do you think you are doing in general?

    I want to know how people rate of themselves as students. I know TSR tends to be full of very high achievers but I just wanted to get an idea of the proportion of geeks to lazy bums. So, what do you think you are?

    - No, I miss lectures in the morning because I don't wake up on time
    - Yes, coursework is in by the deadline because it'd be stupid to lose 5% per day but I don't always get tutorial work done fully.
    - I leave everything to the last minute, I need THE FEAR to do work well.
    - I rarely do external reading but I'm doing a lot more since I actually started enjoying it during my exam revision.
    - Average for my first year last year, results so far are about 2:1.
    - Coasting.

    Based on my first semester:

    I have attended most lectures/seminars
    My work is always on time (despite the two occassions it wasn't done at all)
    I don't do enough reading
    My grades are pretty average I'd say
    I think I'm doing ok in general.

    Going to focus and study harder from here on out though.

    I used to be, then I got a social life and became very lazy. :sadnod:



    Do you attend all your lectures/classes?
    Nope. My attendance is terrible.

    Do you always give you work in on time?
    I try.

    Are you an effcient worker or do you leave everything to the last minute?
    Last minute. I work best under pressure.

    Do you do all the subject reading you are supposed to?
    Nope.

    What are your grades like?
    I think they're good for the subjects that interest me. Everything else, I just don't give a damn and I'm sure my grades reflect this.

    How well do you think you are doing in general?
    Well enough.

    Yes, no exceptions!

    Do you always give you work in on time?

    Mostly. I do the work but occasionally forget.

    Are you an effcient worker or do you leave everything to the last minute?

    A mixture of both I think. It depends on my mood.

    Do you do all the subject reading you are supposed to?

    Hell no, I'm too preoccupied with my EPQ

    What are your grades like?

    In theory good, but in RL probably crap. Dunno, haven't had any test results back yet

    How well do you think you are doing in general?

    Alright, but I'm gonna flunk chemistry that's for sure. Oh and probably the EPQ.

    Thanks guys, this is really interesting. I get a bit freaked out by the amount of work everyone appears to be doing but everyone who has posted so far seems to be in a fairly similar situation to myself. I think the most important thing is to keep on trucking.

    To be completely honest, not at all. Well not anymore anyway, I used to be really 'good' =/

    Do you attend all your lectures/classes? Nope

    Do you always give you work in on time? Nope

    Are you an effcient worker or do you leave everything to the last minute? Gah depends on how I'm feeling at the time

    Do you do all the subject reading you are supposed to? Surprisingly, yes!

    What are your grades like? Above average, nothing to sing about

    How well do you think you are doing in general? I do my best, just not in the conventional way...

    I go through large periods of not doing hwk, daydreaming in lessons, generally not learning much...but then I have bursts of super-motivation and get everything done just before we finish the topic...inconsistency works for me :dunno:

    Do you attend all your lectures/classes? God no. Maybe 3/4?
    Do you always give you work in on time? Lol. If it's work to be handed in, then 90% of it will be. Else I'll just sign in and get marks for that.
    Are you an effcient worker or do you leave everything to the last minute? The latter.
    Do you do all the subject reading you are supposed to? I have none. I am not challenged.
    What are your grades like? 90%+
    How well do you think you are doing in general? Fine.
