    I'm procrastinating now- I really don't have the motivation to finish my oceanography report. It's so dull! Deliberately made a dinner that would take a long time to cook and prepare to get out of writing it for an hour or so. My friends and I then decided to "roast" another friend for 40 minutes. After this, I then spent 20 minutes searching how to make the perfect hot Milo so it wasn't watery (because there's nothing worse than a watery hot drink, y'know, top priority thoughts at this time), made said Milo, drank Milo, immediately afterwards decided I was peckish and rather than my usual "meh I'll wait til later" I saw it as an excuse to leave my room and further prolong writing this stupid report (so did my friend because she left her room to come and get jelly and have a discussion on procrastination as soon as she heard me go to the kitchen). Spent another 10 minutes looking around the kitchen deliberately slowly for a snack. Now on TSR talking about my procrastination.

    I procrastinated on reading, then replying to this thread. I could probs get a 1:1 if this was a BA subject.
    Probably not, BA's are incredibly harder than BSc due to the fact you need to be creative and not just regurgitate information for a memory test

    I procrastinate quite a lot. However, when it comes to assignments I find that once I've chosen to focus on it, I can get it done pretty efficiently. Unfortunately I only really tend to get into this mindset within the last few days of the deadline..

    not true, I did (but didn't complete) a BA Journalism, most of it was memorization and regurgitation :P I'll hopefully be starting BA German this Sept, and since it is a language course it'll most probably be memorization and regurgitation as well xD

    I achieved a first-class without much memorization at all. It was how I used the learning experience to develop new ideas and bring in independent thought. From that I developed strong analytical, critical and evaluative skills I never thought I could have. That to me, is true learning and the difference lies in what you can do with the information other than blurt it back out. How do you take that learning experience to develop further?

    I apologise for my rude post too, I thought you was serious disparaging the BA's. They're just as valid as BSc.

    Good Luck!

    I procrastinate a lot.I think most people find it hard to change state like if you are procrastinating now it is very hard to revise the opposite is true though when I do work I often work very hard sometimes working for 24 hours in a row.This applies to most things in live like it is very hard to go to sleep at night and also very hard to wake up on the morning.

    I am disappointed with my procrastination there is so much revision to do particularly for Physics and I am running out of time just over 3 weeks left till exams.

    didn't see it as rude tbh, just thought i'd have to prove i'm creative or something i kid i kid. I agree with what you said about the skill sets developed in the programme, which is what I'm hoping to achieve on this second try. Would you say though, that history modules can be done without a lot of memorization? I've never been good with academics though, so I'm just setting my bar at a mid 2:1 range and I'll be happy.

    Its all about changing state thats what I find difficult and its the same for most people like once you've started doing some work you are likely to do a lot but starting it can be hard when you have been procrastinating for days.

    Have you ever seen the film 'The History Boys', where they're A-Level students (doing history) and they're slated for writing boring (but yes, correct) essays.

    Anxious to impress, the boy points out that when Chamberlain resigned as prime minister in 1940, Lord Halifax rather than Churchill was his preferred replacement. But on the key afternoon when the decision was taken, Halifax chose to go to the dentist. "If Halifax had had better teeth," the boy points out, "we might have lost the war."

    That is original thinking with information learned!

    I may have a First Class degree but I left school with nothing

    Not about being good with academics, it's about reflection and being open to development and the best you can be. Being motivated and having that desire to succeed. But I guess the key to all that is PASSSION.
