    Last exam term. LET'S DO THIS! (It helps that I had modules in January that counted for 1/3 of my year...)

    I've been back since last Wednesday, and I'm not sure if it's helped my productivity...

    I've had a couple of friends who did it - one had a back problem (so had to stretch every little while) and the other is dyslexic. It seemed pretty easy for them, I think they got told where to go by the Tutorial and Admissions office (this is for Downing, btw).

    My question is, whom do I approach regarding sitting exams in college?

    See here:

    You need to have arranged it with your tutor by mid-way through last term, according to that. However if you went and spoke to your tutor asap, and it was deemed that sitting exams in a separate room was necessary given your needs, I'm sure they'd be able to sort something out.

    Talk to your tutor. I think you'd need to have an exceptional reason to receive permission now. The University deadline was January 31st.

    I'm sorry, I don't know. As others have said, talk to your tutor. I can try and find out from my friends if you want?

    In other news, 2 days until my first exam. Damn Part III and your early early exams Everyone's happy about the Easter break and I'm stuck in revising!

    Wow, I didn't realise anyone had exams this early. Crazy.

    Good luck!

    Good luck! :hugs:

    Does this also mean you finish early, and can enjoy the sun when everyone's still revising?

    Kind of... So I have 3 exams this week, then my project deadline in week 3 (although my first draft's done ), then a viva, and finally the General Paper (a huge exam on everything in the first 3 years of physics) in week 6!

    Thanks for the luck (and Timmona too!)
