Lol,no I'm not offended. Don't feel inadequate. I've GOT to work year round,I can't just cram at the last minute, I'm not smart enough for it(plus,I like my sleep too much and the thought of staying up all night cramming is my idea of hell). I wish I could be, so many of my friends are so lax about their studies and I'm not sure whether it's a public facade or true but...grr.
I have one friend who is just amazing though,she takes her books to the gym to read on the stepper, she leaves our social gatherings at random intervals to go work...if she gets below a first she demeans her 'low marks'...while little old me has to study 'just' to get marks in the mid-60s...grr.
I'm a panicker,panicking gets me through things and makes me start early.Lol.
Anyhoo,this evening I intended on doing lots of work,ended up doing about 40 minutes,made three cups of tea,got pick n mix and came online,I can't seem to concentrate. I did make the mistake of looking at past exam papers this afternoon though..
By the way, good luck Robbie, are things really as bad as you describe? Why don't you claim mitigating circumstances if you're really worried?
