Lies Students Tell Themselves – And Others!

Anyone who’s been a student and lived away from home will know that it’s far more than just gaining an education, it’s also a life experience that will never be equalled. However, it can be a shock to the system because suddenly there are important deadlines.

Sure, when at school you had to get your homework in on time, but it was never so important that your future life really depended on it. But with all the work you’ll be expected to do on a degree course, it’s essential you get it done right and in when it’s supposed to be.

However, it seems many students have a whole range of excuses for not getting things done right now.
