This First Year student was not doing well in exams. He was not enjoying his university experience.

“I don’t think College is for me. I think I should have started working straight after my Leaving Cert”

He told the counsellor that he finds it really hard to go to lectures as he is not doing well and has no clear idea of where he is going.
