    So guys, I finished my last year at university in the UK a month or so ago, and I only recently got my results. I ended up getting an honours degree with an upper second class degree (2:1).

    I was hoping for a first, but I'm happy with a 2:1. For those who aren't aware, the way in which the UK graduation system works is a first is the highest you can get, a 2:1 (upper second class) is second, 2:2 is the third highest, then a third is the fourth highest.

    I struggled so badly as I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis during my second year. I missed so many lectures and lab sessions, I didn't think I'd even be able to finish university. As long as you always keep focused, have a positive mindset, you can achieve anything. I went into this course not knowing any programming, I struggled learning it, struggled coping with my illness, but I just kept my head down and pushed through any barrier I went through.

    This applies to making money online, you'll have rough, dry days and you'll just want to give up. It's not about the obstacles you're presented with, it's how you push through them that'll define whether you succeed in making money, and even in life.

    I just wanted to share this as I love BHW and all the members. Just let this be motivation to you guys, just never give up. Keep persevering and you'll get to your goals in the end.

    Thanks guys,

    I was so happy when I got my degree in the mail. Pretty damn proud of it. You should be happy with yourself too. Grats. Funny thing is college killed my motivation to learn anything new. All those 4am study sessions and when I was done I thought "fuck studying ever again" LOL

    Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, glad uni is over and done with. Found the final year hard because the medication I was on was messing up my memory. Glad it's all over with now. I hated the constant stress that comes with studying at uni.
