    What did you end up with? What topics did you study?
    For A Level? Early 20th century Britain, Germany between the wars, Cold War & Tsarist/Communist Russia.

    Lmao yeah ABU and the U was in psychology! It's a very underrated subject, quite difficult actually. Who knew there was maths in it under a topic called 'inferential statistics' still feel hard done by by the grade...but anyways lols.

    I have absolutely no idea what I want to do for a career and i'm not sure how i'm going to find out. I just look at all these things and think that i'm not remotely good enough, even though i'd probably do well if I got given a chance. Everywhere that looks interesting requires a relevant degree, relevant experience or some other requirement that I don't have.
    Feeling the exact same. Although I sort of know what I want to do and I do currently have a job which covers part of that role, it’s still not enough experience to make me move forward with anything. And now I'm 24 :closedeyes:.

    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.
    Agree. First year I did ok, got good grades without too many problems. Second year I cocked up so hard.

    Did better in coursework than exams. Courseworks was good/ok but exams were atrocious.

    Yeh it completely reversed when I went to uni. I think it's cos at A Level I was so desperate to move out and start fresh that i'd spend every waking moment revising. At uni i'd do every essay the day before it was due and i'd always get a 2.1. So I always knew half my grade before i'd sit an exam, meaning much less pressure to do well.

    I ****ed up so badly in second year. There were two essays that I didn't even hand in so I got 0 for both of them. Had so many problems that year both academically and socially, luckily some people helped me to see some sense and I knuckled down for final year. Just about scraped a 2.1 overall when in reality I should have got a 1st with ease.

    **** that though. 24's too young to be having to stress about all that unless a situation's been forced upon you.

    Nah man 24 to me is an ideal time to start getting into a long-term relationship and think about marriage etc. Allow being an old dad...

    Yep. Maybe it'll change in the next few years since I'm only 18 but right now the idea of being married with kids in 6 years is kinda terrifying.

My student loan still hasn't come through yet so I'm broke af lmao but I work part time in Top Shop so it's not all bad. Decided on what u want to study?
