Excited for uni, bored of revision? Here's 10 reasons why our A-level community are counting down the days until Freshers.....




1. No more curriculum, you get to focus on a subject you love


Yes, you get to read for hours on end about what you actually enjoy, not on what the government thinks you should know.

2. New semester means new stationery


Getting ready to shop for new notepads, pens and Sharpies...

7. Doing your own food shopping


Supermarkets are the new toy shops for the young independent adult - you can have anything you want. First stop the pop tart aisle, stocking up for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

8. Being independent from parents


Budgeting and spending your own cash and feeling empowered to make your own sensible decisions all by yourself. Not forgetting, testing out how long you can really sleep in for with no one nagging you to get up.
