    I got CCCD at AS, managed to turn it around and got BBB plus an A* in extended project to get into university. Although it's extremely cliche, work hard and anything is possible. You get what you put

    Haha thank you! I just pulled myself together to be honest I had dropped out of college the year before, and so I was really disappointed getting those grades on my return...

    Fast forward three years and I've just graduated with a first class history degree I would just say you need to compromise and focus on your work. So if your social life needs sacrificing then so be it! BUT do not stress yourself out too much because if you put too much pressure on yourself then it isn't going to help anything - so try to always stay calm
