    there is no change in routine

    If school leavers go to university straight after school, it will be easier for them to study because there is no change in routine.

    Does the bold part of the sentence make sense?

    Re: there is no change in routine

    I don't think you can equate the routine of university with the routine of high school/college. They are fairly different styles of learning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would not use "school leavers".

    Re: there is no change in routine

    In my presentation I provide sound arguments why they're quite similar .

    Mike, why wouldn't you use school leavers?

    Re: there is no change in routine

    How do you usually refer to high school graduates in the US then?

    Re: there is no change in routine

    And here we have another BrE vs AmE difference, so it'll depend on who you're speaking to. In the UK, we graduate only from university. We don't graduate from school or college.

    We finish/complete secondary school. (Age 16)
    We finish/complete sixth form college. (Age 18)
    Note that the school leaving age in the UK will soon go up to 18 so kids will be obliged to stay in education until at least 18 and won't be able to leave school at 16.

    "School leavers" currently refers to 16-year-olds but when the above-mentioned law change takes effect, it will refer to 18-year-olds instead.

    We graduate from university. (Age 21/22 or older for a mature student.)

    The number of differences are amazing. What is sixth form college?
