I bet looking back on your GCSE’s now you’re thinking that compared to A Levels they were a piece of cake and you can’t believe you ever moaned at the stress and workload! Well uni is the same! However you’ll be glad to hear that the jump from A Levels to uni is not as great as the one you found when you started college.
I honestly cannot stress enough how important organisation is at uni, you are responsible for your own learning, achievement and development! But of course you are not in your own, from my experience at uni it is very easy to get distracted and procrastinate.
In one of my recent lectures we were spoken to about the importance of our mental wellbeing by Megan Blissett, the student mental health adviser. The amount that stress and pressure can impact on you is unbelievable! It’s sooo important you look after yourself in every aspect both mentally and physically!
Things such as a good nights sleep, not drinking energy drinks and managing your work so you have some time to do what you want will REALLY help you at uni. But if you’re struggling it’s always fab to know that there’s a team at Edge Hill that you can use free of charge that will help and support you!
If you want to get in contact with any of the student services team please look here and they will be more than happy to help you or point you in the right direction if you need any help!
Remember, look after yourself!!
