I was a straight A student at school, my average now is 46%. Dreams die here, dont come here, people are rude and horrible and no one cares about your problems. Edinburgh takes independent study to a whole new level, I feel bad for students that have to pay tuition because they really arent getting their moneys worth at all!

It has been stressful due to terrible accomodation and unhelpful/ rude managment team. Also we had strikes and over a month of missed lectures which coupled with little contact time in sem 2 meant i dont feel ive gained much from semester 2. Sem one was good. Sem 2 pretty bad.
