I am joining a masters course in English Literature. I graduated as an Engineer and then have worked for a few years in education and counseling. I feel anxious about unknown things. How will I study? How much will I study? Should I prepare notes in the classroom or just listen to the lecturer unobstructed? How will I perform in the exams? What if I mess this up just like I messed up my engineering?
Even as I am writing this, I am getting to understand that I need to take things easy. In due course of time I will. I think what is causing anxiety is that I am not a literature graduate and hence I do not know how to write. But again I will learn that in due course of time. What I am asking here is any advice that you feel will be valuable for me as a beginner. From your personal experience or from general awareness.
