Starting Uni after a Gap year watch

    • Thread Starter

    Right - So I've had a year out where I've done everything except studying after I finished my A levels last year.

    I'm slightly concerned I won't be able to keep up with the other freshers who are fresh out of A levels so everything they've just learned is still at the front of their minds.

    I'm wondering if there's anyone who's been in this position and could share whether they some reading up before restarting and wether they think it was the right decision to/not to in hindsight.

    If it makes any difference I'm studying Economics at Exeter as I'm sure preparation needed will vary from one course to another.

    Enjoy your time off and don't worry about doing any reading beforehand. Most of what you were taught at A levels and the way in which you were taught will be redundant at uni so don't worry. There will be others in the same boat and there is plenty of support available. However, if you are struggling at uni ask for help.
Do you like carrot cake?
