    Like the title suggests, mention your biggest problem at uni so far. You could be 1st years,2nd or even 3rd.


    i am currently 2nd year and my biggest issue/problem is friends. Especially with the course I am taking, there a little..nerdy? ! I would class them as friends but not best friends to hand out over the weekend or go pub etc. Still wondering if I will find anyone that has similar interests to me at my Uni or if I just need to grind through 2 more years?

    Non -cool? Wow you seem like you'd be top of my list to make friends with!
    I doubt they want to go to the pub with you if you have that attitude!

    The only things I'm motivated by are food, TV/Movies and intimacy. That's it. Past that I find it hard to give a ****.

    My son, Sheridan has such a brilliant mind as you full well know so no academic problems, but he is facing some money issues.

    He just phoned home asking for money to buy silk pyjamas. Said his friend Tarquin laughs at him for having lower middle class pyjamas.

    Transcription factors, they're horrible to try and remember. It's like reading alphabet spaghetti as there are so many acronyms.

    Yes the tutor has suggested an app called "ref me". But i rather do it manually, and they've given us examples on how to reference different sources: like books and journals. Guess I'm sorted, complaining for nothing really, like I usually do. Thanks for your help xx

    My dissertation I'm hoping the topic is technical enough to get me a 2.1 minimum
    I also haven't found many friends (especially girls) as my course is mainly guys
    I struggle with early starts too. I'm always there on time but by the time I get home I'm too tired to work

    the word version has you input it yourself and just formats it in the correct way and then you can check it against that, might possibly save time.

    My problem was tiredness. I was ready to drop from fatigue. Oh, you can't imagine how long I stayed up translating Old English and Gothic texts. All days, all nights with books we were spending time together. I walked around in a blur....But nevertheless, my time at Uni was excellent
