Academic stress in week 0 at University of Oxford?Watch
Also how bad is it if I haven’t finished reading the books listed in the reading list? There are 3 books to be read in total and I strongly doubt it that I can finish them all in good time.
Is there academic work in week 0? I’m worried I might get distracted and couldn’t focus on getting to know other people and making friends.
Many thanks. I’m already feeling stressed even if nothing has officially started yet 😂

That also means you will almost certainly have no college exams ('collections' in Freshers' Week. (What would be the point?) How important your summer reading is depends on your subject and your tutors, though since you only have a reading list of three books they might all be important – if I were you I'd try to read them all. You won't need them in 0th Week, though – any actual work will probably only start in 1st Week.
It's normal to feel stressed, but remember that everyone in your year is in the same boat – and, after all, Freshers' Week is designed to help all freshers relax and get used to university life.
