    As the title suggests, I'm starting my final year of uni and have managed to successfully juggle:

    - getting good grades (first class average)
    - commuting to uni (~40 mins each way)
    - two part time jobs
    - society committee president
    - voluntary work
    - a relationship and social life

    As you can see, I've packed a fair bit in to my 3 years at uni so far (4 year degree), so I've got some good tips tucked up my sleeves. Ask me anything you like .

    What uni do you go to? Have you always commuted or did you stay in halls in your first year? If you always commuted, do you feel youve missed out in any way?
    EDIT: also what do you study?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm at the university of aberdeen studying accounting & finance. I have always commuted and haven't missed out in any way. I'm lucky enough to have a decent relationship with my parents though, so it's basically like living in my own house, but my parents are here and I get to save money for a house lol. I do all of my own cooking and cleaning etc as if I were living alone, I just don't have to spend money on accommodation. Other people might not necessarily have the same experience.

    With regards to friendships made in halls, I don't feel like I missed out on that either because most people I know couldn't wait to move out of their halls because they didn't really like the people they lived with, so I don't feel like I missed any opportunities to make friends there. I've made plenty of friends at uni anyway.
