1st year is great because you ease into university life slowly; the demands of essays and assignments, and have time to you spend finding your feet. Don’t mistake their careful pace as not caring or challenging you. When 2nd year comes around you have to deal with time management as well as balancing several important things at once. But your 2nd year goes fast, and no doubt 3rd year probably goes even faster. I have found 2nd year to be a great time at uni; I am beginning to know what I am are doing but don’t need to make final decisions regarding my career just yet.
