    Hi guys,

    I am a second year undergraduate at the University of Hull. I am a local student, so this is the first year that I have lived away from home. I have not managed my finances very effectively and am currently about £3000 in debt. About half of this is interest free because it is on a student overdraft. I receive a £50 standing order from my parents every week. Due to the recession, it is very difficult to find a job, particularly with no experience. My A-level results were AAC. The A-grades were for a double award subject in Information Technology, but I managed to average a first in year one. This year, I have also missed two assignment deadlines, so need to repeat the stage. I am considering leaving my course. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Personally I would leave. Finacally is it possble say to move home? I mean your third year is by far your most important and your work load may increase.

    I wouldnt give up on University and hopefully someone has more finacial knowlegde. At the end of the day you'll have a good degree as you said you did well. Everyone can miss a deadline so dont worry about it just try and get them in next year. The third year in most uni's is wieghted alot higher.
Which accompaniment is best?
