This is a mod that changes how the studying process from UNI operates, making it either easier or harder according to the academic performance multipliers and the time spent studying. By default, sims will study for 120 minutes, and their academic performace will increase at a rate of 0.8, 1 and 2 for light, normal and heavy studying.

Details

Needless to say, this mod requires University Life. Choose only one flavor.
It conflicts with mods that edit the AcademicTextBook+StudyFromBook and the Computer+StudyAtComputer XMLs.
Built on patch 1.63 but you shouldn't run into issues on other patch levels.
This mod does not affect the increase/decay of academic performance from activities other than studying.

Masochist30.30.81.5

I recommend pairing this with a mod that slows down (or increases, depending on how much you hate your Sims) the decay of academic performance. The easier flavors translate to your Sims gaining more academic performance in less time, while the higher difficulties mean your Sims will have to study more and their performance will increase at a slower rate.

You must have the expansion, game version or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Haha, I know what you mean XD I also use Nona Mena's No Academic Performance Decay because it's preposterous how fast it drops!
