throughout school ive always felt ive never achieved my potential, probably because of addictions to stuff, which made it hard to focus on school.ive done ok though, got mostly bs and few cs.
but well, i sorta feel like i have no other chances to really work hard because in uni ou dont graded like in school..but at the end you can get a first class degree.....though imgoing to quite a bad uni, so is it easy to get?? is it worth the paper its written on??
i think ill be more focused now so i dont have addictive distractions liek i did in gcses and alevels, and feel itsmy last chance to do well instead of average joe grades i normally get
Bs and Cs in A levels or GCSEs? Either or, they're not bad grades and a 'bad' uni (eurgh, hate that term) would be looking for Ds and Es
How bad a university are we talking? If you're talking London Met, say, then my guess would be pretty much.
Doesnt matter if its thames valley or south bank, dont assume you will get a first class degree. Only snobbish ***** would think so.
How is it easy and why is the uni crap, I think that's a matter of opinion tbh.
It's just what suits you. Just because a uni is more prestigeous, doesn't mean it's any harder. If you're into theory based subjects, then you won't find the work at a so-called prestigeous uni very hard. And you might find vocational stuff a challenge.
Agree with danni and Ronar. A uni is still a uni, unless ur aiming for jobs where they want you to be in top 20 unis for graduate schemes, who gives a ****.
Keep your expectations after uni realistic to a point and your a winner.
Go for a first but don't assume it will be easy.
People may well tell you that it wouldn't stand up to a third from a more prestigious university. These people are utter snobs and it's unsurprising that the spoilt brats congregate on a website with so many privately educated students.
It would be an excellent thing to have.
you still need to get 70% or above so you know, its not that easy
you need to put work in for that, if you don't put the work in, you won't get the results and you won't get a 1st
you need to work for it
if you going by league table's, they are bull as they all tell you different things, these more to uni then just getting a first, people can walk out with 2.1 but be built for the job market as they spent their time at uni well, not just hitting the books 24/7, but playing team sports, joing societies stuff like that
Your education is waht you make of it. Just because a uni isnt deemed execllent doesnt mean that you have a better chance of a 1st.
Whoop whoop, I went to a crap school and a crap college, worked my arse off to get into a decent Uni, and just graduated with a 1st. Bragging I know but who cares, it shows it's possible for people from "normal" backgrounds.
easy for an e.g Oxford student to get a first at e.g MMU? Yes, incredibly
I assumed that they would have the same exams for each uni? I.e. Maths papers are the same at Oxford as they are in Chester.
