    I am doing a course which requires a lot of hours reading and note taking [law] but I found in first year I didn't make enough time to socialise. What could I do to aim for a good pass in second year as well as make a lot more friends. At present I only have a handful and I look at some people who have already gone away in big groups with the friends they have made from uni. How can I make this me next year without jeopardising my grades?

    Discipline and consistency is a studying tip one of my lecturers gave me one time and it worked wonders. Assign yourself study days - maybe 4 per week where you aim to get a certain amount of work done. Whether it's mastering a new topic or reading ahead. Over the course of a semester, you won't need to study half as hard when exams come around and you will have had tons of time to socialize.

    So 4 days a week I would work and the other 3 I wouldn't ? I think id find that pretty difficult with the course im doing, at the moment I only have 1 day off week -also how does it work when I intend to write up my notes every evening ?
