    Quick Question about Uni

    This might sound like a bit of a silly question but do they ever check homework lol. For example, if im doing a math course and they prescribe a textbook to me, would they ever check if I have done all the exercises? Or do you just self study for the course in uni?

I want to get into medicine next year as a non-standard entry student, but that also means I'll have to pick a degree that I will be completely fine sticking to if med doesn't work out. That being said, I'll still have to maintain a high...
