QUIZ: What Kind Of Student Would You Be?

Swot, or slacker? Hellraiser, or quiet type?

YOUR TIME IN college is up to you. It’s what you make of it – whether you’re a fresh-faced first year, or someone who’s already working and getting an education on the side.

So what type of student would you be? Take this quiz to find out.

1. You've just got the required reading list for your course. What do you do?
Immediately order every book, even the expensive academic ones
Figure out the key texts, and give them a fairly close read

Skim the introduction to each book 5 minutes before the class, make a big deal out of mentioning it, and then stay quiet
Reading list?
2. How would your friends from college describe you?
"Hardworking and conscientious"
"Quiet, but good craic"

"A bit of a messer"
3. Your mates are all heading out, but you've something on in the morning. What do you do?
Stay in. Your education is more important.
Go for a couple, but retire at a respectable hour.

Do the big one, and make it in on two hours' sleep.
Wake up at 2pm in plenty of time to catch Dickinson's Real Deal.
4. Your parents come to visit. You've forgotten to tidy the gaff. What's the first thing they see?
Your coffee-stained course books from last night
Your coffee-stained course books underneath last night's Dominos box

Your course books and worn clothes on the half of the bed that you use as a 'desk'
Nothing, because the state of your apartment immediately sends your mam into a fainting fit
5. Your main activity in the library is...

6. It's deadline time. You've a giant assignment due in a week. How do you tackle it?
Start work now and keep steady
Wait until you can't put it off any longer, then get cracking

7. You get your assignment back. What has the lecturer written on it?
"In-depth research lends weight to this impressive study"
"Strong work, as usual"
