    Hi Everyone,

    I'm currently a First year UG at University of Surrey studying Physics (Bsc).

    Next year I'll be moving out of halls and into a student house with some of my current flatmates.

    I haven't heard much about the second year of university and I'm a bit concerned about whether I'm going to be able to cope next year.

    My question is: what is the second year of university like compared to the first year?

    I appreciate responses from anyone and everyone but people doing phyics degrees (especially at Surrey) will be much help.



    I found the step between 1st - 2nd year a big transistion in terms of studying and knowledge needed then the 2nd - 3rd year.

    I'm sure you will be able to cope, just read up over the summer holidays and keep up with additional reading from your lectures and keep the grades up and I'm sure you'll be fine

    it's a step up, definitely, but only a small one ! You get out what you put in like in most academic fields, I'm in my final two months now and feel more pressure then I did in the first two combined. That's just my op x
