    Well I am in my first year, first term and I am getting increasingly concerned that all my homework I hand in I keep coming back with a 2.2 bar one I got a low 2.1 on. But I am questioning now if I am actually good enough for university any more?
    Sorry just feel a bit down.

    Do more reading and work outside of the lessons to improve on any aspects you're not good with. And also maybe look at improving the presentation of written work?

    :curious:

    OP, go talk to your tutors. What types of homework? For essays, write a plan and show that plan to your tutor, they'll rip it apart if it's bad and tell you where to improve it.

    2.2 is good! At least it isn't a fail!

    OP, have you read the book 'how to get a first?'. that is quite good, gives some good guidance on what you can do to make your work better. but good luck

    What are you talking about? It's good (not brilliant now?) because it's not a fail?

    Well, suppose I got a D at A level. Is that 'brilliant'? At least it wasn't a U.. :facepalm:

    Sorry just feel a bit down.
    Also, have you asked for any feedback? That may help you see how you can improve further.

    Firstly, the words aren't synonymous. Good and brilliant are not the same.

    Secondly, if you'd be content with a 2.2 you probably shouldn't bother going to uni.

    The main thing you can do is ask for some feedback on the work that you're doing. What course are you doing? If it's a case of you getting questions wrong, then you need to do more practice. If it's a case of your presentation, etc, then again, just ask for some feedback on what you can do to improve.

    Economics, so I do everything from writing essays to maths to analysis etc. I am asking for feedback my essays are getting a lot better now. Just grrrrrr so frustrating although I have been talking to other people and they seem to be getting 2.2's and very low 2.1's also?
    Just give this term up like only another week after this. Revise hard over xmas and really go for it in the spring term onwards. I mean I don't know just feel a bit lost.

    How Patronising. A 2.2 is NOT good.
