What annoys me is when you get good grades/marks in your exams and people instantly think you are "bateing the books", and you only did a bit of study and do well.
It's not about the amount of study you do, it's your capacity to retain it. I don't study as much as people think, my parents think I'm doing too much and I think I'm only working at about 50% activity level(good aul flexible budgeting) but I have a good memory (that's what I think is the reason!). i don't do 3 or 4 hours a day 7 days a week!I do study before a test but what is more annoying to me are people who are annoyed when you tell them you're not studying as much as they think and they don't believe you.
Can you not accept that it's not about the amount of study you do, it's your overall work ethic and how you worked over the two years. Study ain't everything mes potes.
