Bare in mind it varies massively by course and university.(Original post by elliemayl)
Thank you that helps a lot breaking it down like that, i mean understably it's got to be sort of harder at some point!
My art teacher said she felt her a levels were much harder than her degree. I just want to make sure uni's a good option for me rather than take out a loan and end up having a mental breakdown over the work :'
I find university much much more challenging than any other previous education. But then I'm doing a science degree, it may be different for humanities and arts I can't say as I haven't studied them.
Your opinion of Uni? Watch

Dunno what everyone else is saying, Uni so far has been easier than A-levels by a long way. The social aspect is the hard bit to nail.

University was an extremely difficult and stressful time, but I studied Physics. I don't think even once during my four years I did less than a 40 hour week. Most weeks were more like 50-70 hours, but I nearly always had one evening a week where I went to a society and put all work aside - I only didn't when the coursework load was ridiculous. Physics, maths, engineering, medicine, etc are generally considered to be the hardest degrees. Non-STEM degrees are usually considered to be substantially easier to understand and get to grips with, so they often require less time input.
A-Levels were much, much easier than university, and I did four A-Levels through to completion rather than the standard three.Last edited by Keyhofi; 16-02-2016 at 09:34.
