Does anyone have a rather lazy teen that managed to get into uni and turn it around?

Currently year 13, needs to apply to unis in the next few weeks and keen to go.

Great set of GCSEs despite not much with going on, A levels different story. Can't see high grades emerging!

However, if she does manage to get onto a uni course I'm worried she'll still continue in this lazy can't be arsed frame of mind and end up with a huge debt for nothing. Not to mention what it may cost us topping up the loan!

She's convinced she'll step up at uni as it'll be something she's interested in and she hates school. I'm worried it'll be a three year piss up which will cost her dearly .... I still have to drag her out of bed!!

If she's a lazy first year uni student she'll fail and have to repeat the year. Sometimes that wakes them up a bit, sometimes not, but it's an expensive way to do nowt for a year. I've 17 repeaters in my first year this year and over half haven't yet attended a single lecture 🙄
