So I thought the transformation from GCSEs to Alevels was difficult. The harder and more work. I thought that it would be the biggest education struggle. OHHH how I was wrong! The transformation from Alevels to University work is definitely going to be one of the hardest.
With lectures almost everyday until 6pm and a huge pile of books to read seems daunting. But if you really sit and think about it. It really isn't that bad at all. When you're at school the work load seems horrible because it includes subjects that you may not be good at or enjoy. If you don't enjoy a subject at school that is compulsory to do, it is proven that your motivation for that subject is in fact weakened. As your motivation falls the success of your grades also falls.
However. When you finally choose that path in life to go in the work load that university gives out doesn't seem that bad. When you see that it is something that you thoroughly enjoy, for me it's teaching, you feel more excitement than dread at the work load.
The fact that you will be studying a subject you love and have a passion for means your motivation will increase. So to conclude, I was once dreading the work load at university but after sitting and thinking about it. It doesn't seem that bad!! I am now VERY excited!
