Why do people on this site use getting good grades as an excuse for everything Watch

    If you see a thread on here about say social life at uni or going to the gym you will get a bunch of TSR gamma males go on about how they can't do any of these activities because 'they need to get good grades'. Loads of people can get good grades as well as do these activities and it's not because they all happen to be geniuses.

    If you really didn't have time to do these things because you needed good grades you wouldn't be spending so much time on TSR drooling over league tables and any girl who happens to put up a profile picture. Seriously if you want to be a complete hermit then fine but stop acting like you're superior to everyone with this irritating, self righteous and blatantly false excuse.

    I've never seen anyone post anything of the sort

    But I do agree that uni is about having fun and doing stuff other than studying from time to time
