I keep saying I am gong to use this holiday to do some serious study/essay writing/assignment completion, reading etc etc.

Now that it is here, it's time to get down to work...

...but too many other distractions!

What's the betting I won't get much done

Anyone else in this position? What is your advice to make sure things get done?!

Yep, I'm a third year with the essay deadline from hell. I'm staying at uni for the vast majority of the xmas holidays, and most of my friends are in the same situation

Did any of you guys do any revision/work over your Xmas holidays in first year? I think I will be going over my notes/ lecture slides to recap for a multiple choice test I have to do when I get back.

I have a crap load of work over summer (I'm a first year too). I have a collection of library books to read in preparation for next term (because I won't get time to read them during term), and have yet to actually get onto any revision which I still need to do.

I plan to but let's face it I'll probably just watch TV and look at my laptop thinking I should be studying while not.

Yup, mocks in January as well as coursework. I think I'll have to stay away from the laptop.

Last year I did SO much work over my christmas break because I had January exams. This year, I can relax; which is nice until I remember that revision for summer exams has to start extra early this year.

In UG we always had our essays handed in by 20th December so no writing over Christmas break and in final year we had NO Christmas/ new year exams so ironically it was quite relaxing.

I'm doing my masters part time and need to seriously get some down time to finish an essay which shouldn't be too bad!
