Many of the first year exams (and second year for that matter) are multiple choice. You will learn to have a love hate relationship with them. Multiple multiples are evil things that you have to learn to overcome (or at least I did). There is a bit of a learning curve with multiple choice, they are not everyone favourite that is for sure. One thing I found was I had to adjust my study habits and think more critically about the material then I had to in high school.
Clubs also allow you the opportunity to meet people who share your interests who you would not have met otherwise. Take advantage of this, become friends with upper year students. Its a great way to receive advice about what courses you should take and are great sources of Used Textbooks.
