    Hi, I'm a first year English student

    At A Level, I memorised many many quotes to support whatever point I was trying to make. This was with many texts, having to know some of them in especially great detail.

    However, at university, 2/4 of my modules are coursework, and the other two are examined. Even in the two modules which are examined, there is far more content to absorb than at A Level (well, duh).

    My question is: what is the best way to go about preparing for examinations at the end of my first year at uni. Learning everything for rote no longer seems feasible or a good idea. Instead, maybe its best to pick evidence/key scenes/moments to refer to?

    Can any current/past university students help advise here?

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
