    So I've been told what the free time of a typical student is like, but nothing about what actually doing work is like.

    I'm doing my second year of A levels atm, and it's quite a bit of work, but I can cope with it.

    What's Uni work like compared to College?

    Btw I'm doing accounting which I find weirdly easy, sort of, and all 5 of my offers are for Accounting and Finance.

    I find I go through spells where I have loads of work or reading to do, and then times when I really feel like I don't have much. I have a seminar for each of my 6 modules, and they're every other week, so I do constantly have prep to do for that. There is a lot more work than you probably think, it is just the fact that it all seems so time consuming!

    There's not anywhere near as much work as A Levels, unless you're approaching a deadline and then all of a sudden there seems to be loads. That might be because I've got used to the work load or my course doesn't give us much work...or maybe I'm enjoying it more than A Levels so it seems like less work.

    To be honest, the people on my course who go out partying all the time are the ones that get bad grades. Use your time efficiently and you'll be laughing.

    You don't go to Uni to study, silly.
How are you feeling about your exams?
