Probably a bit easier than a levels, at least first year - way less work!
Essays are a fairly big step up, forget getting full marks for some ****** essay you did during morning break, or even a high mark.
Pretty difficult, I've tried my best on a fair few essays, sure I got one 74 but mostly get 2:1s (bear in mind I got very high marks at school with no effort (not trying to brag))

And yeah, of course it's possible to have a life and get a first

On an open day visit, I asked the students about the jump from A Level to university and they said the jump from GCSE to A Level was a lot higher than A Level to University. So if you can get through A Level successfully, I'm guessing you should be fine at university aswell (don't quote me on this though)Last edited by samanthaaaa; 01-02-2010 at 00:27.
