Please stick in and try your hardest and also don't forget to enjoy yourself too whenever you can. Both come hand-in-hand with one another.
It seems like it’s just a year to get everyone on the same level or something ??
First year is in an introductory year in so many ways!
It's a year to introduce you to lots of people and make friends, to settle in and to start the basic learning/ understanding on your course. You may find that you did the same/ similar subject at A Level so will re-cap some topics during your first year but also will be learning new topics you have never covered before.
You can also email your personal tutor to find out more about whether or not your first year contributes to your final year grade as it will vary across university's.
