What did everyone do to prepare for uni? Is there anything I should be doing while I'm still at sixth form or is it best to wait for results day? Thanks!

Yes there is a lot you can do to prepare for uni. Publishers have produced some really useful online guides to help year 12 students transition to uni life. Click HERE to access the material from Pearson - Transitioning to HE, How to learn online & Wellbeing.

Access to this free material is available until August so I would work through this material over the summer after you have completed the work for your A levels.

So many students struggle with the transition from a year 12 of perhaps 300 to a uni with 20,000. The lecturers will be teaching undergrads in classes of 300+ so they simply do not have the bandwidth to get to know students well or even to identify the students that are falling behind. Anything you can do to get set for the move to Higher Education will help.
