B’s - you are the party animal!

Just be wary of your other housemates - not everyone likes the same volume of music as you and they need might need more sleep than you.
C’s - Sorry to say this, but you are the lazy one…
Ah the sloth of the flat! You’re laid back and have a very relaxed approach. You spend most of your time in your room catching up on the latest shows with a takeaway. There is nothing wrong with this, but don’t miss out on the university experience… and remember to help out with the washing up.
D’s - you are the sensible student
You are the perfect student, you always get your work done on time and others will come to you for help. You are everyone’s first pick in a group project. Just remember to enjoy the full experience and you are allowed to reward yourself for hard work.
