Work hard, don't let anyone tell you, you can't do something!

I went to one of the worst schools in the country so I pretty much taught myself everything. I bought old textbooks online and did every exam paper since 1995 or something like that.

I always mention it at my job interviews as a challenge that I've overcome!

Was the thing I was most academically proud of until I got a First in Economics at Uni

But now I work in a really posh office and feel a bit segregated based on class..... I stand out as being not so posh....

Sorry got a bit sidetracked, ultimately its hard work and devoting pretty much all your time to your studies that'll do it, there's no shortcuts unfortunately. Sure you'll do it tho and do well!

Thanks for the reply, well done on the hard work. My main problem with past papers is that I get ~90% of the questions wrong and I am then faced with learning how to do pretty much the whole course to correct my mistakes and I oftentimes just give up.

You need to start by properly understanding the material before jumping to past papers, learn the textbook stuff first and practice, practice, practice
