2. And realising you’ve committed to three or more years of the constant stress that comes with trying to “make the most of it”.

3. Checking your timetable to find you’ve been given multiple lectures and seminars on the same day.

4. Being consistently poor and afraid of the time when you have to start paying back your massive student loans, yet still being charged to print off your essays.

5. And struggling through the weeks when your loan has run out and you’re waiting for the next instalment.

6. Having to sit in a near-silent lecture with a horrible case of Freshers’ Flu.

It is worse than non-Freshers’ flu. Trust.

7. Trying to learn anything – or even stay awake at all – in a 9am.

8. Realising you’ve turned up to a lecture slightly late and will have to walk of shame to find an available seat.

9. That moment in a seminar when you realise you are lost completely.

“You should remember this from A Level.” 💩

10. And wondering what you’re even paying for when the lecturer clicks through the PowerPoint slides too quickly.

11. The constant fear that there’s an assignment you aren’t yet aware of waiting for you on Blackboard.

14. Dealing with halls cleaners and their strange rules.

15. Being assigned people you don’t get on with in your uni accommodation.

16. And actually having your success or failure for a module riding on a group project.
