    I'm at a Scottish university at the moment, I came here through clearing because I unfortunately came out with BCCA* at A level. As most of you are aware, the degree here is 4 years long. I'm in first year at the moment and the first two years here don't "count" and also it has been much easier than a typical first year at an English university (according to friends who take the same course in England).

    My insurance choice from last year came around and said they'll take me into their second year of the course in 2016 providing I do well at my current uni. My only concern is that I'm going to feel behind since I won't have done an "English" first year which seems more intense than a Scottish one. I feel a bit scared to be thrown into second year of a 3 year degree but I'm really unhappy where I am currently. However, one of the incentives of going to the English uni is that I'll graduate a year earlier (as I planned) because there a lottt of further study things I'd like to pursue.

    Should I just go for it? I have firmed them.. But I'm just quite concerned.

    Thank you for reading I really appreciate it

    I tell myself that but it's still a bit concerning. I really want to graduate with a first.
