    I'm currently at University, having just completed my first year. I haven't done as well as I'd hoped. I think a lot of it is to do with the fact that I have a part time job. I love where I work and I love having that little bit of extra money but I also think it would take a huge weight off my shoulders if I were to leave and completely focus on my degree. Can any body give me some advice on the subject as I'm really torn as what to do?

    Could you change your attitude to the results you are getting? If you are passing how important is it, really, to get better results?

    Could you improve your study habits/exam technique so that the time you are studying yields better returns?

    Could you reduce your living expenses and thereby the need for the extra income?
