    Urghh I have my first final tomorrow and then another on wednesday. I think I'm quite prepared for these two but the structure of the one tomorrow means that to get all the infomation it will pretty much be constant writing for the 2 hours. My hand siezes up and my writing goes mental so I'm worried I won't be able to get it down legiabaly (sp!). After that I have two more, I've got all the infomation I need and structured it but I haven't got it all in my head yet! Arghh its such a stress. A week and a half and it'll all be over :D

    I have my first final next Tues and the next one the week after. Only got 2exams luckily but they're double the weight of normal ones.
    Really worried about the first one cos there's no past papers so I don't really know what to revise, and it wouldn't be possible to learn everything!
    Trying to do extra reading at the moment, not much fun. Just trying to get some motivation! Can't wait til it's all over!

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    6 exams down one to go :hyper:

    i feel completely drained but after exams are done dont have to think about it for months :D:D

    I have had...erm...7/11 exams. I haven't actually started revising yet :blush:.

    I *have* to revise for the one on Thursday and Friday though. Otherwise I WILL fail.

    Had my English Lit exam today. Was bollocksssss. The invigilator was so dappy and decided to use her mobile phone half way through the exam to ring up the other invigilator because someone wanted to use the toilet.

    I have my own examination room and the invigilator I had was a joke too last Friday. First of all, he was 30 minutes late so I was left in the room (they took everything from me and locked me in there). When he did get in there, he kept tapping things, texting on his phone and his phone went off too. He also kept walking in and out of the room and 30 minutes before my exam was over he went "are you finished yet?" and I was like "I have another 30 minutes?!"

    I really hope I don't have an invigilator like that on Friday morning :(

    So far, the revision is going slow but its going in if you get what I mean. I'm just hoping I pass my two big final exams so I don't have to return in the summer!

    Sounds like a right knob! I'd ask for someone different. In my own room with an invigilator on Friday for Sociology and I've been told I get as much time as I want. Wahey I guess.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    As much time as you want?! Seriously? That seems really weird!

    I get 25% extra time :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah I know. Was chuffed :D I think it's cuz it's Access course so they make loads of allowances.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I wish they did that here, lol. Despite having extra time on Friday, I ran out of time! I am really grateful for having extra time at all though so yanno!

    Good luck on Friday. Thats when I have my exam too!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thanks. Good luck to you too :)

    I have an test tomorrow for the beginning of the lab and I learned like a mad-man. I probably have a few hundred reaction equation swimming in my head, big parts of the Cation-seperation process, the whole periodic table of elements (had to knew it by heart beforehand) and a dozen things more. Man I know everything and lab will go haywire anyway, because shit doesn't work as the book says,...

    4 weeks, 4 times a week, 8 hours a day hell...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    3 down 1 to go. Might start the revision for that one tomorrow, but it's not till a week on Thurs so not feeling under any pressure to do it yet. Got my dissertation presentation the day after it though which I do need to sort some stuff out for as well so need to remember to schedule time for that in between socialising as well. (Damn all my mates having finished exams)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ive only got 3 exams do this year got my first one on the 4th :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I only have two exams!
    One's a week today, then the other is a week after that, so they're well spaced out!
