Depends on the degree and where you take it. A lot of biological degrees don't require you to have A level biology so at first they recap that for the benefit of those who took other A levels. Although they covered my entire A level biology syllabus in about four weeks here... humbling!

a few people ive spoken to said that a2 levels will be the hardest yr of ur life. uni is much more flexible and easier to handle.

Ignore this advice. Uni is not a walk in the park.

I am spending around 50 hours a week studying and I am in the 2nd year. I am only at an average university.

You can doss about at uni but you will lucky to get a pass at the most. To get the higher marks 2:1 or above it is very very hard.

It may partly depend on the course and also standards tend to vary. But if it was easy it would be a farse quite frankly. Degrees are not supposed to be easy that is the point.

University is actually about studying, the social life is just an extra that goes with it. I have found the people that have gone to uni just to avoid getting a job have no motivation and are hanging on there like a thread of string. I have no time for lazy *****.

The beginning of the 1st year started off with recaps, but it goes into more detail, and in biology, there are a lot more cycles to understand. So no, not really; A-levels and 1st year uni aren't too similar, well notfor my course.

Most of the stuff I've done this term (Physics) has been new, so very little was stuff I'd done at A Level.
