    This is new one on me. We take our exams before Christmas (first years only) and in the summer.

    I wish we did that aswell. It completely ruins Christmas etc. and for some reason, seems easier to do in Easter compared to January.

    Depends on the course but generally yes because of how semesters and terms are set up

    It varies from University to University and course to course. We for example do, but i've heard of other students at places such as Wolverhampton University doing them in December.

    When I was at uni we had them in December and May. I preferred that, because it meant you could enjoy Christmas without having to study the whole time .

    No all of my exams are in the summer. I kind of wished we did have January exams so that I could leave my Autumn term modules behind and focus solely on the Spring term ones but instead I'll have to try and balance them both in terms of revision.
