How much time is everyone putting in/put in for their first year finals?
ah, exams... you crazy Bsc students!
Ive been doing an average of four hours a day and it still seems desperately inadequate. My English Lit student friend did an hour...today...
I aim to do as much as possible. I've done about 10 hours today.
My exams are @ the end of June. Will start revision tomorrow I think...I've passed most of my modules anyway so not gonna stress too much.
Have been doing a couple of hours a day, which is nowhere near enough seeing as I missed practically half of the lectures last term. I haven't even made 10% of the notes I need to yet, though I understand a lot of the work and do have a good memory so I'm not worrying too much.
I didn't do much for my final exams. There were only three of the and they weren't worth much of my whole degree. I was also pretty much guaranteed a 2:1 even if I got 0% in them.
I'm a bit annoyed about this now as I was so close to getting first. If I' have perhaps got just 5-10 marks more in each of the last three exams I'd have probably got the first.
So keep working people. You know how much you need to do. It will vary from person to person and exam to exam, but don't relax with the feeling that 'well I've got that classification in bag'. You might actually be able to go one better with just a bit more work.
