Oh no! Did they put up the wrong date or you just misunderstood?

Work hard this week and hopefully you'll be fine! Good luck

past papers- look through them and prepare stock answers because quite often the same questions come up again and again. Don't attempt to revise all topics but equally cover more than 2!

Had a meeting with my tutor yesterday (the one who knows about all my personal ****), and he's actually made me feel a lot better about my degree. He laid it out pretty clear, basically just asking me if I was ok with a scumbag ruining my life and my degree. I realised actually, nah, I'm not ok with that. So right now, I'm applying for that masters degree I've wanted to do since I started uni. I'm at the 500 words on why I wanna study it part, and kinda stuck, but I'll get something down.

I'm not even sure if I'll take the offer if I get it, but at least I'm giving it a shot. I feel like I'm making progress. I'm gonna get over this **** and get back on track. I wanna get back to being a geek.

(Assuming this is for an essay subject)

I disagree with the 'stock answers' advice - only do that if you're very, very sure the same questions are going to come up, for my uni that wasn't usually the case. You do need to use past papers to pick your revision topics, though.

I think it's best to pick a certain number of topics per exam (based on how many topics there are on that module in total, what tends to come up in past papers, and how many questions you will get to choose from in the exam) and then revise a number of author theories/empirical examples/case studies for each one, whatever is applicable to your course, so that you can then potentially apply these to any question that comes up.

If you just have stock answers you'll be **** out of luck if those questions don't come up, but if you actually know the material you should be able to apply it to anything and provide better analysis of it in the exam.
