Too Good a Time at University

A lot of students get good A Levels/IB, go to a good University, then having been a top student up until then, imagine that the first few months will be spent bringing everyone to the same level of knowledge, or find themselves seduced by beer and sex and just HAVING A BLOODY GOOD TIME!
These people will fail their exams. If you fail your exams and fail your results you are OUT of University.
Typical is the student from Imperial who failed his first year, then rang me from some impossible to get to island in the Caribbean, offering to fly me out their and prepare him for resits.
I would have gone, charging £10000000000000000000000000 per day, but frankly I think I would have ended up teaching him maths on the beach, surrounded by empty beer bottles and he would have failed again.
