Hello and welcome to my mental breakdown!
So ive just started my first year of studying Biology and day ones got me ready for death.
Well maybe not quite but im feeling all kinds of confused..someone please offer me some guidance here!
Im really not understanding how to study at uni. Sooo much is covered in lectures i barely have time to write anything down. The slides are all posted online and i tried today to go through them after and rewrite them into note form which is the only way i take in information, but even after one day and 80 slides per lecture i can see this isnt doable. What have people found to be better ways of taking notes so as not to get behind and forget everyythinggg?
That and the book situation. Ive never seen such a long reading list in my life...someone please tell me its not as 'essential' as im being told.
I just dont understand how university works or what to do after my lectures. Please help me be less of a disaster.
Thanks in advance kind saviours.
Should I still go?
