    Was that Civil I by any chance? I much prefer problem questions, so when I opened the paper and saw that I was just going "crap, crap, crap" in my head. But I think it went OK
    It was! I'm conflicted: I do better at problems in supervision work but in the pressures of a real exam, I've made some shocking errors. So, exam wise, I think essays are better for me. Also they take (me) less time to do in 45 minutes. I entirely regret not doing the essay I was prepared for in tort and doing a problem I messed up instead.

    How are you feeling for tomorrow? My ability to give a damn reduces with each paper.

    Yeah, I always seem to write far less for Civil than for anything else, which my supervisor has assured me is OK but I'm never convinced

    I am dreading tomorrow - consti is normally my worst subject anyway, and like you I too am losing motivation at a rate of knots, I'm on the verge of essentially writing off the whole paper. Ah well...

    My supervisor stresses the same. Being concise rather than rambling is a good thing - especially if he happens to be grading at 2am.

    Well, if you did the usufruct question, I'm not sure there was any other way to answer that than being concise. Or making stuff up, I guess.

    Yeah, I dragged the usufructs out to a page and a half but felt bad for it.

    I too fancy joining the Nutella/procrastination party...

    It's nearly over - you've only got about a week left (maximum!) and you'll be free. May week, tea, relaxing, cake, whatever you want to do and you can basically do it

    We're already planning on getting a projector and a huge game of FIFA set up a week on Saturday for an evening

    Good luck! Ho Chi Minh, I'm assuming you're saving it until after you get out, rather than taking it in in lieu of water...

    Thanks Hah yes, although it is very tempting to imbibe the beautiful liquid during the exam to lessen the pain both of inevitable hand cramp that comes from rapidly writing essays for three straight hours and the pain of having to write essays for three straight hours :P

    I was walking into town from Castle Hill after seeing a friend, and a girl going in the opposite direction was a mess. Felt pretty bad, but I guess it must have been exams too.

    Good luck.

    Aww, thank you. As it happened, it wasn't the train wreck that I had envisaged. It wasn't great, but it was as good as I could have expected. 1 left!

    I'm a lawyer, so I've already got a training contract with a firm lined up - it's conditional on a 2.1, but I really couldn't have done any better in the exams, so I don't "mind" what I get. In theory getting a 2.2 would mean it's all up for re-negotiation, but I'm trying not to think about that. :p: I don't have much planned for freedom except my college's May Ball - most of my friends finish a week later than me, so I can't organise much yet! I'm hoping that I can tag along with the first year lawyers at the pub tonight since they're done today, but we'll see...
