    Depends on the course, it is going to be harder but it is easily manageable particularly in first year if you have a solid working pattern

    I read history at the University of Warwick. I've achieved mostly firsts, with two being at 81.

    It goes like this at uni for marking- which is different to A level in essay subjects.

    As you can see it is very different, I have however enjoyed first year profoundly.

    Yeah there are past papers for exams, you use the lecture/seminar to provide the foundation for assignments- then further reading to provide the knowledge for the essay.
