    Hi, i'm a part time law student with the open university.

    I've just completed my second year, did it in a total of two years instead of doing the whole year in one year. So last year I did well in my written assignments only for my exam result to let me down and I told myself I'd do better this year and I have only in my written assignments...

    in a nutshell I'm really nervous I repeat the same thing in my third year, I want to improve my exam performance in law but I'm not really sure how to go about it apart from doing more previous exam papers does anybody have any advice?

    also i'm not sure if the grading in brick uni is different but as far as i'm aware for OU you have to match your exam grade with your assigment grade to get the desired result. Please don't think negatively of me because I have studied hard I'm just not good at the exam portion. Sorry if this sounds whiny also
