In the first year of University you only need 40% for each of your modules to pass into the next year. None of this counts towards the degree.
This fact led to one of my lecturers in the first year asking the following question…
“Who here is going to get a first in year one?”
We all immediately put our hands up, eager to impress. He then asked…
“Why? Whats the point?”
Year 1 is definitely the only year you have the time to be irresponsible, get drunk every night, and meet new folk … so do it!!!
Year 2 brings hefty amounts of coursework and revision, year three brings even more of the same but with the added bonus of worrying about your future.
So make the most of the “Best Year of Your Life’!
