Theres an assumption that 1st year is a doss and that work really begins in second year. Do i stand a chance if i only just (kind of) scraped through 1st year?? (Got a wide range of grades)

Is the work enjoyable but difficult? I don’t mind if it’s the same word count and everything but if it’s hard and boring I might aswell give up now. I’m scared :/

For my STEM degree, the 2nd year was comparable to the 1st. Both years were challenging, and while the second year's content was a bit more complex, it wasn't a huge jump!

Likewise for my engineering degree, I found the jump between A levels and first year absolutely vast - huge and despite trying to take the year seriously I only just passed, it was a massive let-down. By contrast I found second year a small jump up from first year. Yes the content will be slightly more complicated but your gain in experience from 1st year (even if you don't realise it!) will completely outweigh it. Me and my friends all performed better and were less stressed in our 2nd years compared to our first. And I remember worrying about 2nd year at the end of my first year as well!

I guess the assumption comes from people who treat 1st year as a party and don't put any effort in. They then start 2nd year where it counts and panic as they are not used to working, so find it harder. If you've made an effort in 1st year, and continue making an effort, you will enjoy 2nd year work more than 1st year.
