4th year student had genuinely forgotten how f**king dull their degree is.
With such long summers here at Edinburgh University, it is easy to drift into the dream world that the summer will never end, that your degree isn’t that boring, and that part of you really is excited to get back to studying. However, when confronted with the reality of doing weekly readings studies have shown 101/100 students cannot be bothered.
This has been the case for 4th year History student, Alan Jacobs, who commented,
“Like, I think I tricked myself into thinking I enjoyed it, this happens every bloody summer. Reading is just so boring, seminars are so flipping long, why ohh why couldn’t I have done something else? I mean I like history as much as the next person, but every single day looking at theories and ideas, and facts that aren’t facts….well it is just a load of bollocks isn’t it. I mean I have 4 hours contact time a week, what is the point?!”
Sadly Alan’s thoughts reflect the vast majority of students on campus, with 12/5 students saying they don’t know what words are any-more. All they can hope for is to scrape through the year, and somehow gain a 2:1 for sod all effort, which will count for fuck all in later life. YAY.
