I saw this post over at Thrifty Vintage Fashion a little while ago; but I felt that I could add a little bit of a philosophical tone to it. As a college student in their final year, these are a few things I have learnt.
- You’ll need to get use to addressing your lecturer by their first name, rather than “sir” or “madam”. And yes, it’s a little bit strange at first..
- The library is a great resource for homework, as well as the internet, in terms of research.
- It’s best to start revision early. Because there is so much ,ore content and new skills to learn-it’s such a step up from GCSE. And I’ve come to wish that I had started this earlier than I did.
- Always ask if you need help.
- You’ll need to be disciplined, in terms of deadlines, coursework, exams. Maybe a planner would help.
- Mocks are mocks, so it is probably better to make the mistakes then, practice to get rid of them, and do better generally.
- Always try and try again.
- Speak to somebody if you’re having a hard time.
- Pack your bag the night before, because forgetting something isn’t always too great.
- And finally; be prepared to laugh along the way.
