    HI, I have a question - In short.

    For people who have finished Uni, currently in or planning to go University.

    Just purely focusing on the academic side of uni

    1) Are you supposed to remember/know/understand all or 90% of EVERYTHING they teach you? AFTER UNI, and a few years down the line

    2) What % ^^^ do you HAVE to remember

    3) To those who FINISHED UNI and have a job What % things you learnt in UNI, are used in your actual job?



    Than you very much

    Depending on the degree and the career you go into (it's rare that you'll study specifically for the job you want to do) the vast majority of the things you learned go out of the window.

    It's more about having the capacity to understand the subject during university, then professional training takes over afterwards.
