So I got into Leeds after working really hard for 2 years after a-levels and I was so happy, I never even imagined someone like me could go to a RG university, I never set my standards that high. But whenever I go on TSR I feel right s**t, people talking about Oxbridge, UCL, Imperial and putting down universities like Leeds etc... makes me feel worthless, even though I’m super proud I made it this far.

Don't feel worthless. Not everyone on here tells the truth. Even if they are you shouldn't let that diminish your own sense of satisfaction in what you have achieved.

Stop putting so much emphasis on other people and focus on yourself. Comparison will only hurt you.

Students here have unrealistic expectations of what it means to succeed in life. You should be proud of yourself, Leeds is a good school.

Thank you everyone, I understand that not everyone posting on this site is genuine, but it’s easier said than done to stop comparing yourself when you see the same posts 100 times a day Leeds is a good uni, I just hate that people on TSR think you’re a failure if you don’t attend the top 5 universities in the country

Lmao, why would they put down Leeds if it's top 15? That's literally one of my dream universities and you should be proud of your achievements. I'll tell you what, those people who are getting offers from Oxford or especially Imperial are mostly from private schools or from a decent family, although there are some who actually work extremely hard to get there. Nonetheless, Leeds is a very good uni, if you want to achieve even higher you can finish undergraduate there and do masters in very very top unis.

Very touchy, I'm sure Leeds will nurture that, not as good as UCL or Imperial but you'll get your money's worth.

Thank you for your responses, I suppose achievements are relative to the individual And I hope you get into your dream university That is very true, most people on my course are from private school too, might be a bit intimidating

Indeed. Hope you’ll get your money’s worth putting people down on TSR at 1:36 am

Private school kids have a sheltered life in a lot of respects. You'll probably have a lot to teach them about life.

To be fair most employers don't care what university you went to or know how much effort it was. It can actually be an advantage to be at a lower ranked university because you will get through the course much easier. I was at an average university and it was hard work 5 days a week but I know others who were at low ranked universities and they were only in for 2 or 3 half days a week yet to most employers they will see no difference in the extra effort

If only death was relevant to life.
