Is second year of university really THAT hard?????? Watch
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!
Thanks so much for your reply. This gave me a little hope!
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.
