Comment on: Don't be a placement martyr
I agree with a lot of the advice you have given, apart from the 'abundance of free hours' we supposedly have. For example, my commute is longer, I have to work part-time, and I also have a family. Thus I normally have no free time and have to work late into the night to get anything done regarding uni work. This part of the advice is great for if you are an 18 year old with rich and generous parents!
