    Hello,

    So I was wondering about going into second year, as it's all come around so quickly! Any good advice about second year, could be anything? Also wondering whether I should read any books in the remainder of the summer holiday I have or just chill and do it when it comes around?

    Hello

    I've just finished my Second Year and from personal experience I'd say really start to get your head down. Focus on your work and at the same time, really enjoy what you're studying. People sometimes lose the joy of studying their passion but attempt to hold onto that and work hard! Really work towards the grades you want.
    I'd suggest starting read now, not hard core reading but purely because you want to further the knowledge of your passion so just read for fun in your spare time.

    Best of luck

    I just finished second year too I'll give you some advice that I'd give my first year self if I could!

    Study advice
    - Yes, get some of the reading done over the summer. It probably not worth doing it all because you'll likely forget a lot of it. But it's always best to start second year feeling prepared to do the work.
    - Set yourself daily goals to make sure you aren't over-procrastinating or managing your work/play time poorly.
    - Get a planner/diary - really helps to stop you forgetting deadlines and important stuff like that
    - Get organised - buy new stationary, get organised for the year ahead

    Other advice
    - Know who your friends are - you may need those good guys for advice or support at some point
    - If moving into a house - don't forget to pay the bills! Or you'll get fined. The diary/planner helps prevent this too
    - Learn new ways of saving money/budgeting so you can save up to go travelling or buy manga

    Good luck for the year ahead
