I'm a first year undergrad. I was just wondering, how hard it actually is to get a first in a plain 3 year degree? I know its one of the tougher a levels and so far its been pretty hard as well. I put a lot of time and thought into studying and I'm pretty organised too. I got a first in the Jan exams but I don't feel like that accurately reflects the difficulty of the course or the exams since it was mostly foundations and introductory stuff. The content has got a lot harder since then but I've kept on top of it. Even though I'm doing well I feel like there's this mystical aura around it making it seem ridiculously hard and I'm still just going to get baffled by the exams.

It can be hard getting a first just as in other subjects. My advice is try and do well in the first 2 years on the exams. The third year consists a significant amount of practical work which should give you 2:1-1st if your any good at the practical side.
