We've just received our 2nd year timetable. Last night we were discussing on Facebook what time we have lectures, seminars and tutorials. One lass of 19 was saying that she thought it was so unfair that she has a 9am lecture on Wednesdays, as she goes out clubbing every Tuesday night and doesn't get to bed until 4am. She said that she's not going to bother going to that lecture.
As a mature student in my mid 30s I remember that at her age I was slogging my guts out in a factory and working 6 til 2 one week, then 2 til 10 the following week. I often used to put overtime in when I was on late shift and end up doing 2 eight hour and 3 fourteen hour shifts a week when it got really busy.
Moaning about a 9am lecture interfering with her clubbing. Why the hell is someone like her at uni anyway?
...teenagers of today.
Rickster, I'm at a pretty decent university and people still do that. Seems to be a fact of life. Maybe the dim students are too dim to realise lectures are important and the clever ones think they're so clever they don't need to turn up
It annoys me as you know only too well that there were people who were turned down for a place at uni, and some people there just see it as a 3 year party.
How's she going to manage in the real world where if you don't come in to work regularly because of a hangover, she will get the sack?
No idea Rickster, though if she's going to get a degree in Applied Film Studies or Social Hairdressing or something the problem might be finding work in the first place!
Law LLB (hons) degree.
She failed 2 of her first year exams and only scraped through the resits.
She's doomed and it serves her right for having such a lazy attitude to life. WAHAHAHAHA!
