    Why would I pass up on the opportunities of academic excellence and let those lesser than me to benefit from them?

    Sounds cocky and it is, but it's all about number one when it comes to succeeding.

    Fear of failure and embarrassment. I have already been down that road before and trust me, you don't want to go there. It is literally the worst feeling in the world. That is what keeps me going. :work:

    Exactly right.

    I have my university offer and I know without a shadow of a doubt I am going to get A*A*A*. I know where I'll be next September. I read about people on here whining about how they haven't started revision or they have messed about for the last 18 months - I just put it down to immaturity or being thick. I stay motivated by knowing I am not one of those types.
