    How far off of getting a first in second year were you? Did you feel that you could've done more, or did you feel that you were putting your all in? I have lots of tips for getting a first, but some insight on your current studying would be helpful first .

    I got 64%, studying Accounting & Finance, I do feel I could have done more/put more effort into revision for exams, but for assignments I feel I did give them my best shot but still didn't manage to get anything above 68%.

    Can you choose your modules? Choose more exam based modules rather than assignments if that is what you perform best in
