    Usually (at least for the lectures I had) they gave the recommended reading at the end of the slides. So I'd go and borrow those books from the library to read and make notes on the lecture from the recommended reading list.

    Regarding the friends question, it depends, as it's different for everyone. Some people just fine people they immediately click with and get along with really well while others take some time to find people whom they get along with. You need to bear in mind that these people may not even be on your course, you may meet them at socials, in societies, at halls etc. so just try to put your self out there in a way good luck out there!
    thank you!

    you've only just started - don't worry so much

    it's normal to feel out of your depth at first at uni, the approach to learning and studying is so different to during A levels and school it takes some getting used to - but you will get used to it... the first assignment will be terrifying and you'll worry loads about what you've done wrong and if you've totally missed the point but that's why first year doesn't count on most courses - you can take a year to work out what the tutors want from you and how to achieve that

    as for making friends... again it will take time... It's worth making an effort though, try and sit next to someone and ask their name and which halls they're in/where they're from etc

    Hi,

    Can I ask you something?
    What is uni like?
    Currently, I am doing my GCSEs and LOL have not started to revise but I really want to know what uni is like. Also, thinking of Uni makes me feel old and mature. But i guess that's because I am only 16.

    Final question: R u a boy or a girl?
    Btw I am Tamil and sorry for this messy message (my english teacher is going to kill me if she reads this, soz Dr Wilkinson)
