University - One (academic) year in

I have finished my first year of university! I finished my final assignment last night and I am handing it in tomorrow (As well as giving my sister and our friend a tour - They're entering their second year of sixth form, so need to start making university decisions). I have completed 12 assignments: 7 essays, 3 exams, 1 practical and 1 presentation. My grades have been good and so much better than I thought I could do. I haven't found the lectures any harder than my A Level classes, but there's a lot more independent learning, and it has taken a great deal of motivation to write my essays! I didn't believe I could handle university, but I am beginning to. I know my second and third years are going to be incredibly harder, but I'm trying not to think about them just yet and enjoy my Summer. Overall, I like university. I have greatly improved my writing skills and it is giving me confidence - Academic confidence and confidence around other people.
I don't know what else to say! Sorry for such a short post! If you have any questions about university or my experience, you can leave me a comment or email :)


  1. Yay, well done, Louise! You should definitely have much more confidence in yourself, as you can clearly succeed well :) x

  2. Great post! I'm starting uni in september and I am totally terrified! I've done 3 years at college so I really shouldn't be, but it's just totally different! I'm sure that you'll do great in your second and third year!! :) x

  3. I'm glad you're coping and enjoying university. It's such a huge decision to make and it seems like you made the right one. xx
