Just like my J1 tips I hand out, I also have a little one-pager for S1. It is a little specific to my university but the idea is still the same: it’s a busy semester and you have to stay on top of stuff. You have to study a little almost every day in order not to fall behind. There’s so much material, studying it all a few days before the test is probably going to send you into madness. Decide early on what you’re willing to sacrifice for your sanity.
