    Ok. Child of mine has not worked enough in year 1 although did pass. Now is behind and not understanding to the point where they feel all they’ll be able to do this next year is Work and sleep to try and keep up. Seriously worried for their mental health. Tried to speak with staff from the uni about this situation. Like trying to get blood out of a stone. Seriously P****d off with LSE for seeing a bright Happy young adult driven to this. Yes - child made mistakes but mistakes any newbie might make in a first year. Suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

    This is why LSE consistently ranks among the lowest student satisfaction ratings. Where there's smoke, there's fire, but students (and everyone else that should be supporting them) rather bury their heads in the hopes of becoming a banker than face the evidence that it's a bad environment.

    Anyway, first year results normally count for very little, if at all, towards final degree classification. Provided they put their nose to the grindstone in second year, it's entirely possible to do very well overall, and not have much long term difference - so their consideration isn't really that far from the reality. Of course, finding suitable support for their mental health is another issue entirely...
