Good luck for your exam tomorrow. Yeah I'm doing some Biology modules this term which sound good - human physiology and genetics so I'm quite excited to start those. What about you?

Sweet! I love genetics. Erm I'm doing cellular and molecular pathology.. gene expression and rearrangement. Starting in 2 weeks.

Thankyou! I've done no prep so we'll see how it goes. Only worth a small amount though. Mean thing is they give you a word count which is annoying under exam conditions!

I'm going to have 11.


I'm really regretting not doing more over Christmas. My notes are all organised though it's just the actual revision which I need to begin.


So are you going to begin revision at Easter? I might dedicate a couple of days a week to revising last term, but we'll see as I'm sure there'll be lab reports and assignments piling up soon.
Most likely I will start in Easter I'd rather focus on this terms material and understand it well.

Ughhhh I hate afternoon exams. All morning I don't feel like I can get any more revision done, but if I do anything that's not work, not only do I feel guilty I fear I'll have forgotten everything. Sigh. Fingers crossed it goes well...

How did you exam go (if you've sat it yet? lol) Ohh do you do Biological Sciences? I'm hoping to transfer into it next year as currently I'm doing Psychology with some Biology modules alongside it. I've never heard of a word count during exams, that's so cruel

That's a good idea actually!

I know, I know. Just rid yourself of the guilt! Best thing is to do something which completely distracts you... like exercise. I love going for a run, then I shower, have food, chill, watch my favourite programme. save your brain for the exam. Good luck!

I'm on my way home now woo it was alright - like it's really hard to try to assimilate a science paper in an hour but I got down what points I could. I did my best!

I do cellular and molecular medicine. Kind of biology but more targeted to diseases and not general biology like evolution etc.. And no plant biology thank god!

Will you have to do additional years when you switch or can you go straight into next year?

Like a true nerd I'm pretty sad I'm only doing 2 modules next term. want morreeee scieennnccceee.

Ohh that sounds really interesting. Luckily the Biology at my uni has lots of module choices so I won't have to do plant biology either thank god lol. I'll be switching back into first year but I'm not too fussed really, I like university so staying there an extra year doesn't bother me.

What year are you in and how comes you're only doing two modules?

Just sent an email to one of my German lecturer's saying that I am not going for the DAAD Research scholarship.
Spoiler:
Show
I sent her another one before Christmas saying that I wouldn't go for it and then I changed my mind so she will probably be annoyed. We get on very well and are friendly with each other so I think that she will understand my reasoning behind it. I've explained everything in the email. The research project stopped making sense in my mind a long time ago. I'm taking classes in both German and French in the local university anyway this semester, even though it's my placement semester. Plus I still get to go on Erasmus with my best friend next semester in Saarbrücken which will be fantastic. I am going to try and see if I can make my one semester Erasmus into a full year Erasmus, must email the International Office about it. We'll see.
Not looking forward to explaining this decision to my German friend though, I got her help on this and hate that I wasted her time. It was never my intention to waste anyone's time but my own! )

Beyond tired right now and physically and mentally exhausted but I have an essay due at 3pm tomorrow and I'm not even half way through There should really be some help/allowance if you've tried your best to meet a deadline but are too exhausted to meet it, especially if you had another 2 essays due that week #rantover

I know. But don't even get me started on extensions. I know someone who got one because she was too lazy to get it in on time (so got a 2 day extension after some ****ty excuse)... naturally it was due in today but that didn't happen. Absolute joke. I did 3 all nighters to get mine in on time. Absolute bull****.

Bit of a joke considering I didn't start my essays soon enough but ploughed on anyway, and I've had a lot of personal stuff to deal with as of recent. Makes me so so angry.
