What's the meaning of 'I had work to do?

In my senior year of high school,I was looking ahead to my future and I really wanted to be a social worker. But I had work to do BECAUSE I hadn ’ t applied myself in high school. I made an appointment to see a guidance counselor, Mr. Shaw. He listened to me and looked at me in disbelif. ‘‘You’re not college material,”he said clearly...

Does 'I had work to do' imply 'I had to work hard in my study'? Thank you.
