Throughout secondary school my education was a struggle but my determination and eagerness to learn allowed me to continue, knowing I had to be there helped the matter. I enjoyed being organised and actually found it fun! Plus it was easy to do well, even if you misbehaved in lessons because the work was not too difficult. I
Goung into my A levels, I faced some hurdles. My two best friends died in the first year and did not see the point in continuing, especially when my friends from the college left. I split up with my first boyfriend of 2 years and everything seemed unsure. My AS levels were shocking and I knew I had to make loads of effort if I was to leave my A levels with good marks. So I got stuck in, put in 100% effort, got fascinated with organisation and reading.
Now upon entering university I have gone downhill. My second year mark is 55.5, a 2.2, the essays I put most effort into I got a low mark, the ones I put least effort I have the highest mark. How does that make sense? I have one year left, needing 2:1’s and 1sts to actually get somewhere. I know I can make more effort, in terms of doing my uni work 9-5 Monday to Friday, as someone once told me you have to treat your last year as a full time job so that is what I will do.
I am terrified, I need a 2:1 to progress further with another course. How am I going to do it.
I really do not want to be a failure.
I would appreciate it if you could write your tips for getting higher marks, organisation ideas, any planners you recommend, anything really.
