How do i know if i'm "good enough" for university? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I mean, how do i know i'l be able to do the work? AT the right standard? I mean, a level exams are so different aren't they? They seem so spoon fed where you can basically learn a textbook and get an "A" grade etc..

    SO if you get the grades do you basically know you'l be able to do it?

    I don't know what else to write,

    Thanks in advance.

    first year sorts you out - or is supposed to

    If you are given an offer and achieve the required grades, then theoretically you're capable of doing the course, or at least starting it. As has been said already, though, the first year is where you really tell the difference and is about entering you into the way of university life and work and is supposed to be a transition period.

    If you can read and write well enough to post in a forum, you're already more qualified than some of the people I know who ended up at uni.

    Don't worry so much, I'm sure you'll be fine
