    Nope. But then, I've always relied on effortless superiority.

    because i would be a fresher, and lets face it. You're going out to party 5 days a week and hangover and rings like that would happen. Missing class is what i would be expecting(trying not to). Im half way done of my MASSIVE reading list.

    You can read a couple of introductory texts, but don't bother with any serious study - enjoy your holiday, you'll have enough time to study at uni.

    I'm not at university yet either but I'm planning to be a good student and attend every class. :cool: What course are you planning on studying? And which university are you doing this course at?

    Yes, but only casually.

    I'm going into a very competitive course so want to be as fresh as I can when I start.

    But I'm not going over the top, work isn't going to get in the way of me earning money, seeing my friends or going out with my family!

    Well, I'm doing medicine where you get ranked and a percentage instead of a grade, so I will just be aiming for the best I can in that

    I'm going into my second year and I cannot stress the importance of working through the reading list over summer if you have it available and have the time to do so. Of course, if your aim is only to pass first year, then don't bother, but if you want to get good grades then getting as much reading done in summer will leave you with more time during the term to do the extra readings and study the topics in more in depth. That's what gets you good grades.

    Also, doing the reading before the relevant lectures is great anyway because you are familiar with the topic but you also know which bits are heavily covered in the text and which bits aren't so much, so you can take really effective notes based on the content you already know you have.
