So my friend has failed two of her modules due to personal problems and she went to have a talk with the tutor regarding resits,I accompanied her.Anyway, the tutor asked her "don't get me wrong but do you want to fail the course? some students attend uni and want to fail the course , I've even had students tell me this themselves"
This really shocked me, why would any student in their right mind spend money on their education only to want to fail??I just don't get it? Perhaps they want an excuse to get away from their parents.
Do some students want to fail their course??? Watch

Could be a lot of things, a student who developed depression wouldn't be 100% in their right mind... Though they wouldn't be 'barking mad' either.
Possibly there could be parental pressure to do a particular course on some students and self-sabotage could be a strategy to get off that course without defying the parents.
Academic tutors often aren't great with this stuff imo. Possibly because they generally enjoyed their time at uni and didn't have a lot of these problems.

I don't want to fail my course although I don't enjoy it so will probably fail anyway by not getting motivated enough for it I think
