So it’s less than a week! I hope you’re just as excited as a kid at Christmas because this time next week you’ll know exactly what’s in-store for you for the next three years! Or if you’ve just completed your AS Levels, congrats! This time next year you’ll be dead pleased with yourself, starting a new phase in your life… it’ll fly by!

So I will try and describe what uni is like, just so you have an idea what it’s like when you come. Everyone always says the jump from GCSE to A-Levels is huge… as you will know- they are right! However be rest assured that although Uni is obviously going to be hard, somehow it is not that big a jump from A-Levels, so you don’t feel like you’re out of your depth and you’re eased into the work as it progressively gets harder!

The first year of uni is like an introductory year if you will, you only need to get 40% overall (passing every module) to progress onto year 2. This sounds easy and it might be in your case, however my advice to you is to try just as hard in year 1 as you will in year 2 and 3 as this will stand you in good stead for the progressive years AND keep you in that mindset that you will definitely need.

So come to uni to have fun, meet new people and create lifelong friends/memories… but don’t forget the real reason you’re there!

Good Luck!
