I am a first year student doing biomed.
i know i'm only first year, and most say "it doesnt count" since you only need 40% to pass.
However, regardless to this, I still want to do well.
My lecturers have given us about 10 extra reading books and usually tell us to do "extra reading" after each lecture.
However, I seriously dont understand this. Each lecture covers about 40 pages in at least 1 book.
Am I expected to make notes on all these 40 pages after every single lecture, every single week up to the exam? (baring in mind I have about 4-5 lectures a week).
I'm really struggling to find the time to make notes on 40 pages. Once ive done 40 pages, I have another 80 for example to do!
I am a hard worker and work every night after uni till quite late but im still struggling to find the time to do this alongside doing assignments and having a normal life! (eating, sleeping, socialising etc)
am i doing something wrong? Do i not have to make notes on so many pages? none of my course mates seem to be as stressed as me?

First off, the extra reading books you're being given will probably cover similar topics in varying levels of depth so please don't try and read them all. The reading is to help you to understand concepts better and to help you to connect them to each other so you don't need to remember all the details of everything you read. Make notes to support your understanding of the lecture. Use the learning outcomes to work out what you need to know and understand and in what detail and learn to skim read.
