    That's my first exam. I'm confident on just about everything in the module, I just have appalling exam technique

    I think I'm going to be lucky if I pass our computer and applications module though, my group work was simply awful because the we let the wrong person write the report, I had issues submitting a few assignments and there weren't enough demonstrators to help us with large parts of completely new stuff. I'm pretty annoyed with the way the whole module was run really.

    Hopefully the degree classification will be sufficient motiviation... maybe :rolleyes:
    I had a major group module where two people had to go to hospital due to injuries in the lab.

    I was just letting you know that in the shambles that our inaugural council has turned into, i've taken it upon myself to declare our term at an end as our mandate expired about 4 days ago, technically we dont even have any authority over the league any more.

    So basically, until we've decided on a permanent system of governing the league, the work on a partnership between the EU and the AL will be put to one side, but if im invovled in the new system of govt when it gets sorted (should be about a week) I'll push for it.

    Just wanted to let you know

    Thanks trying my best, but it doesn't help when just weeks after voting in favour of expelling Egypt from the council for inactivity, the libyan rep also becomes inactive, leaving me to effectively govern alone under emergency power :/ Ah well, hopefully this shambles will end with the end of the inaugural council

    Well I guess that sort of entitles you to a valid excuse! What was the lab work that led to the hospitalisations?

    We had a part time student who said they write reports for work all the time (he works at unilever or something) so they'd happily do it, which I thought was a pretty lucky break. On deadline day he gave it to us and it looked like it had been written by a 4 year old

    Bicycle chains and gears lol. Just people being nincompoops. Nothing serious, just some minor gashes that needed stitching I think.

    is politics any good? I've thought about it, but i've always swung towards history...
    It really depends on what you want to do, obviously. I personally prefer politics as it is far more contemporary in many respects and gives me far far more choice.

    Everyone you meet for the rest of your life will think you're a ****, though.
