    Some say it's linked to tuition fees.... are students not finding their courses a worthwhile investment? Are you disappointed? Do you feel like you're getting the right support?

    How is uni going for you? Have you considered dropping out?

    So many questions for a Tuesday morning :lol:

    Seems the drop out rates are slightly increasing, but they are still historically lower than in previous years.

    I'm satisfied with what I get for the money, and I'm sure the degree will 'pay off' in the end.

    Thankfully, I haven't had the need to access university support yet (in terms of MH etc.) so I don't know what it's like.

    The most obvious answer is that people who aren't academcially inclined are given places. You do have the rare outlier that'll do poorly at A level but will then succeed at degree level. But what do you expect when Universities allow students with EE at A level to attend and those with the highest drop out rates are those who fall at the bottom of the league tables. They'll allow admittance to anyone who has a pencil.

    The reasoning is simple! Over the last decade the amount of pussy has drop substantially, this provokes a dire situation in which students can't partake in their desired events. Hence the increase in dropouts. Many like me only go to university just for the pussy, however these days its simply better to hire a prostitute due to the fact university cost £ 9000 a year, however for a year pass with a prostitute is only £6000 a year. Furthermore a prostitute guarantees pussy however university doesn't (I can get pussy from both).

    A zero-point-whatever increase is not worth talking about.
