You do get a fair amount of free time as you have lectures only in the morning so the afternoon is yours - unlike science students and medicine who have to go to labs. You maybe have 2/3 supervisions a week you have to go to - 1 hour each and then you get 2 assignments each week - one essay and one sheet of questions e.g. maths so you will have work to do most days but if you are productive you will have plenty of free time to do your own thing and go out.

About 2 assignments each week - one essay and one set of questions. Each takes 6-12 hours. Lectures in the morning only so you can use the afternoons to do the work.

There is no 'norm' I've come across people with 3,4,5 and even 6.

What would you say to people that think studying business or economics is shallow or a waste of time?

I did economics, maths, further maths, chemistry and spanish. I didn't find further maths that hard - I did S1,S2,S3,M1,C1,C2,C3,C4,DE,FP1,FP2,D1. FP2 was the hardest but honestly if you do enough past papers the questions are all the same and you get used to the method of doing it. I found Spanish the hardest and Economics but thats just because I find writing essays hard. Chemistry is mainly maths so that was okay.

How does it feel that you did not get an A* in the subject you do at uni? (I'm assuming the grades you posted are in order)
Also, do you feel Cambridge is overrated or underrated?

I *think* the university would prefer you to have 3 A Levels with better grades than 4 with slightly lower grades.
