I don't know about anyone else but I'm definitely feeling the stress of having imminent first year exams. Arrrgh!!!
Does anyone else think the Oxbridge system of exams and the 'all-or-nothing' finals does their nerves no good at all?

It isn't a good system but you'll feel wonderful when they are finished.

I thought the system was great. Yes ok, there's a few weeks of stress every now and then, but the rest of the time you're stress free. Also, from an academic point of view, you can learn stuff slightly away from the sylabus if you haven't got looming exams which gives you a more rounded overall education. Personally I hate constantly learning how to get marks in a certain exam - its very different to actually learning a subject.

what is the 'all-or-nothing' system? does this mean it is possible to fail at the end of the year and be rusticated? argh... do many people fail?

im not at uni yet (have the fun of doing my a levels this yr), but i think the 'all-or-nothing' system would suit me better than what im doing now - working on coursework constantly, and we havent even had the january module results yet but we already have mocks for the june exams (yes, june - 3 months away!!! :-/) next week.
i would rather have one lot of exams at the end than be under alot of pressure for the whole year, but i guess everyone has their own preference.
hildabeast - please dont worry too much! keep your chin up and it'll all be fine
