    I did Maths at uni and my degree was a million times harder than A-level, I imagine it might be a little different for some other subjects though.

    Do you remember what UMS you got in Maths and what uni did you goto?
    Do you want to do a masters?

    I can't remember exactly what I got but I know I was 6 UMS off an A which was pretty annoying. I'm not doing a Masters, the stress of the Bachelors really got to me and I just want a job now.

    So I've heard from many people that they found a levels much harder than uni work. As i havent experienced neither of them, i cant make a judgement..anyone who agrees?(im about to start sixth form)
    I got a masters degree aged 21 that was a 2:1 (1st 3 years of degree was first but tonnes of stuff happened in last year which lowered my grade) and I found that a lot easier than getting

    BCC in A levels with a U in AS psychology
    . heck, my professional registration exam, which I needed to score 70% just to pass was a lot more straightforward than A levels.

    In hindsight, it could be because I was in a crap highschool

    38% 5A*-C / 11% 7A*-C way back then, and my 6th form had useless lecturers who didnt teach well / expected students to know how to reference coursework from highschool...I didnt learn it till my 3rd year at uni and relied solely on exam scores and for my 1st 2 years as I kept loosing 25% overall for improper referencing

    Can confirm this. A Level Maths is all kinds of easy compared to the real thing you do at uni.

    haha i suppose it all depends on the degree then.
    The sheer volume is insane and the work is pretty damn hard, but work is just one aspect to uni and medschool.

    There's so much more to do outside academia and I've certainly enjoyed my uni years considerably, far more than my a level years that's for sure!
