I am truly fed up with exams. I have been doing them every six months for what 2.5 years of uni, 2 years of A level, 2 years of GCSE and whatever was before that...
I just cant revise anymore! It doesnt work. Over the last 6+ years my revision has deteriorated from months in advance to weeks, to days... To be honest i am just begining to fail these next ones.
Anyone else in a similar situation?
Last year of uni is really getting to me - the courses are badly taught, and i cant bring myself to read arround the subject enough...
Work is far, far, FAR worse...
I will be sitting exams for the rest of my life. Fun.
nothing wrong with revising days before (Y)
in the end all the exams and revision are whats going to pay off...you'll realise when you have a good job and lots of money...trust me
hmm really should be enjoying this time of your life?
ive been thinking of doing voluntary work. have to get that sorted out, might give me some motivation. thanks!
One more year. You can do it.
Well it doesnt getting any easier. I was in the TA while at Abertay so my weekends werent a party. Maybe you need something like that. I joined the Army when I was 17 and despite all the uni work I just had to get back into combats lol
I stayed in the hub for a bit which helped but most of the time I travelled from Kirkcaldy in Fife. I ended up doing 3rd year from home (Web Design & Development) and on finishing uni I started my own company ontop of having a little girl with amazing profits.
My point is you sound pretty much like me and I avoided proper long stretches of revision but I'm doing already. You might not be studying an I.T couse that you can be so flexable with but maybe you can change the way you look at uni and studying. I was not keen on the way the course was taught. I done it MY WAY in the end, how else am I going to have confidence if I can't trust my own judgement. Not saying everyone should go off and try their own thing no way but maybe you need to be brave and consider all your options.
For basic revision I used bullet pointed lists and lots of them, browsed notes while travelling or watching TV and just never made it seem like such a big task. Not the revision you mean but its better than nothing. Then in the end mate you just do your best and that is all you can do.
Do you or have you every worked in a job like a call centre or factory?
Exactly the same.
I can't F'ing stand it.
I was, and still am considering going to Haiti to help but my exams are on right now FFS.
Seriously shud I just say F it and go?
I already have adequate grades for uni.
So you've worked hard all your life, surely you can do your very last, most important years? Keep going!
