depressed about Uni
SolEk | 
United Kingdom Nik0l4yy 
are Sheffield and UEA decent unis? I got offers from both of them to study Business Management, but I feel like they are not prestigious universities at all, and no large MNC will employ someone who graduated from Sheffield or UEA... Really depressed and regret that I didn't take GCSE's seriously, my chances of succeeding in life would be much higher if I just studied hard and would go to a good Uni... Most ppl who go to Sheffield or UEA are dumb motherfuckers who only care about partying and getting drunk... I won't find good lifetime friends there....I already wasted three years in college... And will waste another three years of my life at Uni...

Dude you are living in a dreamworld. Yes, you can go to a great school and get placed out of college for a good job but that's all it offers - a good starting salary. You still need to prove you can work and evolve at a company... College doesn't teach you anything about the real world. Business is all about interpersonal relationships. No one cares how smart you are. You're still going to be a socially awkward tard in a business setting. Think about what you want and actually talk to people who work those jobs. Being a corporate slave at a MNC is not really all it's cracked up to be. That's why they target "top performers" at universities because they know they will work like slaves under a predefined set of rules. They start them at 70k a year with a 6% raise and flow them into analyst roles so they can waste away their lives at a desk. In reality, your actual success in "business" (hunting for yourself) will depend not depend on how quick you can study for a test or cram numbers, but how well you can present yourself, influence and lead people. Stop aspiring to be fed, aspire yourself to hunt.

University is mostly for people who don't have a clue what they are doing with their lives and need to be told what to do, needless to say they will not survive very long in this day and age.. Me personally I have ok gcse grades and are finishing good a level subjects but I will take a gap year to reflect on my life, whether that is the mistakes I made and the opportunities I missed from my own personal problems with depression, anxiety etc.. I'll continue to try find new hobbies other than cs all day and start nofap, exercising etc. Life is so beautiful and to say you give up is for loserfaaggs so don't be like that, stay true to yourself and dont squander opportunities that can one day lead to glory.. thx for listening to my ted talk.
2020-02-18 00:41
Uhh, no. University is the first step of increasing knowledge. If you go to university without a goal, they you're just stupid.
2020-02-18 00:54
What?? 18-20y.o Dunno what they wanna do in 10 years. Our system depends on people to sweep thru the school system so they can pay back to society. How far and long are you in this increasing knowledge stuff?
2020-02-18 07:23
Have you ever heard of the term, "You learn something new everyday"? It definitely has conviction behind as long as you're open to learning. As for me? I'm currently in my first year and I have completed 2 internships private weatlh in around 16 weeks and made about 12k (1/3 of my debt).

Mostly agree with #19 If you're suited for a profession mentally and work hard, it doesn't matter which Uni you graduated. 1. The difference of outcome is connections (luck-dependant and person-dependant) and maybe your first job interview approach (so, one occurance). Almost no difference. 2. The difference of process is that in a more prestigious Uni you will be tied tighter to your tasks due to higher performance requirements (depends on a particular uni and profession, I'm saying broadly). It can be both good and bad. For a lazy and aimless young person it can be very good to have more defined and challenging direction, it will force you to evolve. If you're an enterprising person with own ideas, it may have an opposite effect: you'll get trapped, overrun and burned out in a prestiguous Uni. Your ideas will not recieve your own attention and time to flourish.

But in this day and age, degrees could mean jack shit since graduates most likely are unable to find a proper job after a dozen or more attempts due to how competitive it is. Also uni prestige does matter, at least in my country it matters as it COULD net you a job quite easily after graduation.

i'm not going to argue over details because i'm simply not knowledgeable enough. all i know is when my siblings and i were growing up and my dad was an architect and he simply earned a bit more than the average, even tho he graduated with pretty much straight As and realistically only medicine and engineering physics are harder to be admitted to. now he's in real estate development, which granted is kind of the same field, but he's earning around 7k euro/month which is like his income 20 years ago doubled
2020-02-18 01:24
Was he an architect or a contractor? Because growing up i thought of my dad as an architect as well yet when i got into architecture i learned that he was actually a contractor. My professor did say that architecture grads have shitty starting wages compared to other prestigious majors, however as an architect works case by case or based on contract, you'd get added bonuses from said contract. Also we learned a lot from architecture, and my dean even said that around 20 Percent of my year graduates will actually become an architect as what we learned are broad as fuck so we legit could go to another field and mostly be fine.

barely anyone actually cares what uni you graduated from friend of my friend graduated from oxford but with 2.2 and struggled to get a job on the other hand my another friend graduated from "normal" uni (dont remember which exactly) and now is doing phd at oxford in astrophysics as long as you get 2.1 or 1 you will get a job and after few years in a career no one cares about uni at all, its about your experience and past jobs and getting 2.1 (which is pretty much everywhere minimum requirement for masters and jobs) would be a lot harder at "prestigious" unis

Both Sheffield and UEA are decent universities. The only difference between the "top unis" and the bottom are maybe facilities? There is no guarantee any lecturer will be better than the others. Unis are for when you are more independent, so it doesn't really matter too much what university you go to. Edit: Plus how do you even know what these unis are like?????????
2020-02-18 00:11
the problem is not the universities themselves as I understand from the post, but when they are hiring - people that went to Cambridge or Oxford are more likely to get the job

If you don’t want to go to uni, don’t. It will cost £9k a year in fees, and probably another 50% more on top to live (unless you can live at home and save money). The only reason to go if you don’t want to is if you 100% must have a relevant degree to go into your dream line of work, and even then, maybe it’s time to consider if that’s still your dream. If you’ve been to college for three years already I’m guessing you’re, what, 21 years old maybe? If you feel like you would rather get out there working and earning money then maybe you can build from the bottom towards your ideal job. You sound like you want to be getting out there and doing stuff, so maybe a 9-5 will be better for your general attitude, self-esteem and even your mental health than going to 10 hours a week of classes and spending your weekends in nightclubs trying to put your wiener in some dirty hoes. Uni life can be romanticised a bit by some people. Up to you at the end of the day man. Talk to people you trust and make the right call for you.

Ok fair enough, so you’re closer to 18 (I’m from Northern Ireland so less familiar with schooling across the water). End of the day, you’re an adult under the law at 18 whether you feel like one or not. No one can make this decision for you. Take advice sure, but the decision has to be right for you. Maybe think about deferring your place for a year, getting a job in a field you’re interested in, and see how it goes.

Firstly uea & Sheffield are good unis not top tier but up there, Sheffield is red brick and uea is a very up and comin uni (Norwich sucks dick tho). I was recently involved with hiring students for a placement year at my company guess what the criteria for selection was? How well you performed at the assessment centre, how well you interviewed, how you came across and interacted with other candidates/accessors. Unless your aiming for investment banking or top law firms most employers do not give a flying fuck where you got your degree from. One of my best mates has a business management degree from a poly that’s way worse than Sheffield & uea and he earns a shit ton in management because he’s very good with people.

If you got a vision of WHY studying in a prestigious Uni is important (I don't, because I have no idea about Business Management field; from an outsider perspective the degree name itself sounds like a rip-off, but I don't know the subject matter), surely you can take a year off, study hard and apply next year, can't you?

2020-02-18 02:16
you do 3-4 A Levels in school, and these A Levels will either help or not for your subject; for example some universities require biology, physics, chem, maths for Sciences, geography history etc for others. Maths is needed for Economics.

I highly doubt its the GCSEs thats the problem. Ur IB/A levels take up a bigger proportion, as well as ur personal statement. I did fuck all in GCSE, never studied once in those two years. I was the only guy who had to RETAKE one of his mocks because it was so shit, and i never studied in study leave, me and the bois just played CS and pubg even when we came to school to study. I only looked at my notes the day of the exam, like 3-4 hours before the actual exam. Almost none of that matters, they just look at my IB grade.

Well in the UK some A-Levels are only accessible from getting a B or 6 now. Further maths you need to get an A* or 8. And then obviously some university courses are only accessible with AAB or above in particular subjects so if at GCSE you didnt get that B to make a good A-Level course then your kinda fucked TLDR: Get B's in everything you want to do an A-Level minimum, aim for A's to make yourself look better and then get baseline B minimum overall to make your average look good. When you apply for universities, they can only give you a conditional offer if A) Your end of years are good and B) your GCSE's are pretty good

if ur looking to do further maths u should get an A* in maths without breaking a sweat. If ur gonna take a certain subject in A level, i assume ur gonna major in something similar, and if u are then u should be getting good grades for those particular subjects anyways as i mentioned. And honestly, maybe its just me but, getting a B isnt really an issue either with most GCSE subjects. 90% of the grades in our year were As - our school has no entry test or anything I only got an A in business and I got a C in further maths but i still got offers for economics and business in good uk unis. My point is, GCSEs arent that difficult to the point u cant fuck up that hard where ur IB/a levels cant carry them, and if ur not good at that subject u shouldnt be looking to major/study it anyways
2020-02-24 20:58
Well i know by looking at exam papers recently (from helping siblings) that GCSE's have got a lot harder since 2018 and before. I took mine in 2016 and as i said got mostly A's and A*s but if you look, grade boundaries are going up, difficulty is going up. And the achievement is also going down. The Government did this on purpose, i believe Boris or one of the previous education ministers said they wanted less people getting A's so it meant more

There isn't really a big difference between universities in terms of teaching. Most students in ''prestigious'' universities are also all about partying and getting drunk. You don't need a certain paper to do well in business, you can start small, and if you do well, you will earn referrals for a better company. My gf's father has his own company and he's a multi-millionaire despite his company only having 5 employees. His manager's salary is 120k.
