    Waste of time IMO. Do things that'll directly enhance your passion for the degree you're planning to study at uni. Small extra-curric things like mentoring hardly make a difference on your personal statement. That's my opinion.

    Do a psychology degree, if you want to be a clinical psychologist best served aiming for top 20-30 universities if you aren't already, get experience at hospitals and build rapport with people. Opportunities come from unlikely sources. While work experience and shadowing isn't actually needed for psychology you'd want to do it as it gets you ahead of the game. You don't need to yet(although would be useful for UCAS) but ideally by the end of 2nd year you should have decent experience.

    Why does Zurich keep posting some poverty chick

    People that work 9 to 5 and gym, do you go before or after? I've been attempting after recently and failing, 1 gym session in two weeks, bloody hell. Need to go back to the mornings
    I'm dying.

    Not been gym for ages but cycle on my bike regularly. Anyway I'm jobless atm but one of my jobs I specifically asked for a late start as in 1-9 so that I can do my exercise before hand

    9-5 just means you have to go gym straight after work. Or you go 24 hour gym.

    I'm a first year at Leicester, studying BA History. Just started 10 days ago.

    Do you have any tips for the first year and the years beyond at Leicester?
    You have a lot free time in the first year as far as I can remember you will have 6-8 hours lectures and another 3-4 hours for seminars so that will leave a lot of time. The reading will increase as you go on the course as well as the difficulty so try to grasp the basics throughly and get into a habit of keeping up with the course as you can easily fall back and then always try to catch up.
    What I would say is enjoy the first year, but expect the external reading and difficulty to jump in the second year so being structured is key Imo. My history housemates tended to have a lot of free time other than during essay deadlines as they use to leave it late. Probably best if you don't leave it to the last day, people don't realise that your first year grade will be used as a basis for any summer internships or placements you go to so getting a 3rd/pass may not affect your degree grade but will affect your chances during these applications.
    Honestly just enjoy your time atm, as you shouldn't be too busy atm and keep up to date as this will be useful later on the course, this helped me to get a First.

    I think it's really good for your CV but not that important for UCAS. I didn't mention one word about EC's in my Personal Statement.



    Indeed. Well done though! That's the sort of job i'm looking for, because nearly everywhere requires basic office experience as a minimum. If you're managed to get that without much on your CV then that gives me hope Just have to keep trying I guess.



    This didn't show up in my quote list for some reason, but i'm nearly 24 with a History degree.
    Did you do History at A-Levels?

    Second year first term makes or breaks your degree imo. The step up is HUGE. I'd say my 2nd year was much harder than 3rd year.

    Yeh. Nailed all the exams, did **** in the coursework because they made you write in a certain style I wasn't used to.

    Thats exactly the same with me. I smash the economics exams but do okay/**** in the coursework. Thankfully a module exam counts as 80% and coursework counts as 20%.
