21 Times Being at University Made You Feel Less Intelligent Than When You Started

Sometimes being at university makes you wonder if you’re really intelligent enough to be there. 🙃

1. When you really struggled to complete straightforward activities, like getting out of bed.

“I just can’t.”

2. Or doing the bedsheets by yourself.

I’m supposed to be doing a degree. Shouldn’t I be able to do this? 😭

3. Whenever you attempted to cook a meal. Attempted being the key word.

4. Every time you got lost in a building you thought you knew your way around.

5. Or when you failed to grasp how you could barely get through an hour-long lecture when you used to go to school for 8 hours a day.

8. Or take out a library book properly.

9. When you allowed yourself to lose motivation for something that actually counted towards your final degree mark.

But you could be ready for a night out in a second.

10. When speaking up in seminars always proved too difficult, even if you understood the topic.

That would be a very rare occasion, though.

11. Or when you somehow managed to do the seminar preparation for the wrong seminar.

12. When it took you the whole day to make a start on an essay but you ended up only writing your student ID and the title.

13. Or when you found another typo every time you read through what you’d written.

“How did I not see any of these the first time around?!”

14. And you relied on autocorrect for simple words like “definitely” or “separate”.

Didn’t we learn this at school?

15. When you couldn’t even hit the word limit.

16. And got a third for an essay you genuinely worked really hard for.

17. Every single time you walked out of the hall after an exam.

18. When you realised that you had fulfilled about 7% of the aims and objectives of a module at the end of the year.

19. Or couldn’t explain exactly what you were studying at university to someone who asked.

20. When you had to Google something about your degree that you then realised you had actually already learned.

21. And, finally, when you realised that although you would be ecstatic with a 2:1 at university, 60% at GCSE is a C.

How times have changed 😭😭😭
