Too much reading at uni!Watch
When lecturers say “read” - try skim instead, honestly I would never expect my students to everything word-by-word at all as some chapters for journals have 50–100 pages! Try skim reading and making summary notes for each chapter. Makes it a bit easier.
For example, if you are taking a politics module, and one the readings is Pericles Funeral Oration - there is no need to read it over and over and make annotations for each line. All you need to really know is - where and when it comes from; and what Pericles is saying in precis about the nature of governance. The deeper understanding would come in a tutorial when you discuss the ideas around it.
If you are taking a law module - you don't need to understand every detail of a case - just what the key facts were, what the decision was and the rationale behind it.
