Example text

I know what I have to learn. I know when I’ve got it right and I think I understand the structure of the course and what bits go together. I never felt that with politics and philosophy. It just all felt so immense and it was like I was always doing little bits of things and I never had any idea where it would lead or how big the thing was that it was part of. I just never felt I had any control and I don’t know if it was just me or if that is what politics and philosophy is like. I don’t know, but maths is different and I’m enjoying it much more.

I was like looking at the league calibre of universities and stuff like that. Waverley was quite good…and I’ve always aimed high so I thought, “yeah, go for it”’. Of all the students interviewed to date, none has expressed such surprise at the reality of university life as Raj. He was living in university halls and described his first term as ‘terrible’. He was quite unable to settle to work because of feeling socially and culturally dislocated: I was like thinking, I don’t, like, fit into this whole university thing, to be honest.

Ever pragmatic, Raj summed up his early experiences as follows: It was probably the worst start I could have hoped for. But, to be honest, I couldn’t realize what it was going to be like because I really hadn’t a clue what was involved in going to university. Hadn’t a clue when I applied and then I came here and it was like the biggest eye opener I could imagine, just being here. Nobody told me, nobody knew and I never knew what to ask, kind of thing because I never really thought much about it.
