    Hello. My name is Ioana and I am 25. I am starting BSc(Honours) Computing and IT this autumn and also I am a full-time employee. I am looking forward doing 90 credits a year, but I don't know If I would manage or not. How difficult is it to undertake 90 credits instead of 60 credits a year? What would you suggest? Thanks a lot.

    For me, everyone is different.... 90 credits at level 1 is very manageable and 120 is doable. I studied 120 credits per year for the first two years, thus getting the first two years of my degree out of the way rather quickly. It worked out about approx an assignment every 2 weeks. You just have to stay really strict and committed to reading every day, for me it was an hour -2hours after work while in bed.
