    I am currently in my second year and struggling with uni. I have been put into 3 advanced 3rd year classes, and I have to start my dissertation in December.

    I feel like I went straight from easy first year classes to impossibly difficult 3rd year classes without any warning or help. I'm really struggling with it.

    How did this happen and have you talked to your teachers about it? Try getting help from your professors and use all your revision techniques, and if this doesn't work think about what your working for and much you really want it
    Hope this helps

    This is apparently how the course is arranged - I am one of 3 people in my year struggling this way because i took the course full time whereas they usually do it part time. They never said we'd have to do accelerated classes just to participate in a normal 3 year degree. I have spoken to lecturers but they've been of little help.

    Are you saying I should quit? I got 84% last year and that included some accelerated 2nd year modules I had to take. I'm very academic and I'm not giving up on my degree, I just need to find a way to make it work.

    I'm not telling you to quit, I'm just saying what you could do about it, getting 84% is really good and means you should keep going, have tot searched the internet about this to see if you can keep up with the topic and accelerate
    Hope this helps
