So what do your answers mean?!

Mostly As

The Square

You’re attending uni purely for the educational benefits. You have no interests in socialising and only bother with activities that will look good on your CV. And whilst you will most likely come out of the experience with fantastic qualifications and a great job lined up, you could probably learn to relax a little and enjoy yourself once in a while.

Mostly Bs

The All-Rounder

You want to do well at uni but you’re not going to sacrifice your social life for the sake of an extra few marks on your essays. You get your work done on time (just about…) but you also want to enjoy your time at uni and make friends. For you, it’s all about finding a work-life balance.

Mostly Cs

The Party Animal

Who cares about exams and assignments when you can be out drinking and making new friends? Life for you is all about socialising and partying. And although you’ll have lots of funny stories to tell your grandchildren… you should probably try and slip a little bit more studying in to your time at uni!

Mostly Ds

The Athlete

You look great and you’re super healthy. Good for you! Just remember to balance your commitment to exercise with studying and some healthy socialising. Life is there to be enjoyed!

A mix of As, Bs, Cs and Ds…

Congratulations! You’ve somehow managed to be a hard-working, popular and extremely sociable student whilst also maintaining the perfect healthy physique. You are the holy grail of humans, and you probably lied in some of your answers…
