I think it's natural to have regrets about any era of your life, but it is part of the rich tapestry of a long period of time.

For me before Uni - which I knew how to Harvard reference
Whilst at Uni - relaxed a bit more, had a few more cheeky smooches instead of studying 24/7

Always, always before submitting your work check the structure and that it flows clearly - it is a major area where people drop down from a 1st to a 2.1. I would always give a dissertation two weeks to breathe and forget about it, before going back to check it for SPAG etc

That is a scary statistic. But I was just asking about regrets in general whilst you are at uni. Like do you wish you worked harder or worked less hard or went out more. Things like that.

I haven’t gone to university but I wish I hadn’t even considered going in the first place.

I’ve got to go know because of my dire life situation (see post history) as I can’t get an apprenticeship anymore

amybum I think alot of people regret aspects of their University experience, but my education completely changed my life and I've got to travel all over Europe and met my partner because of it. I think people fall into believing they have to dress a certain way, go to certain places, and they should just keep it real and be themselves. I would say 90% of my Uni experience was a regret in that regard

Out of curiosity, what did you study?
