I'm a first year law student at a top university, where we're currently having mock exams on every module but one (which is assessed by two 2000-word essays, one of which is due two weeks from now). I didn't study at all during Christmas break partly due to some medical reasons but mainly because I'm a lazy bum.
I'm considering not going to my mocks as I literally have nothing to write and my time would be better spent going back to square one to revise everything - as I was a major slacker throughout the first term. Would not going to mock exams affect my academic future drastically? Am I still able to turn the tables at this point of the year? I'm aiming for a high 2.2/low 2.1 at the very least.
And yes, first year DOES count in my field as employers put great weight onto your first year grades.

I don't think missing the mocks affect anything - seeing as they're not recordedLast edited by iamyourmum; 16-01-2015 at 00:45.

I think it'd be good practice for you to attend the exams, but if they're not the actual assessment then it may just be a non-attended session.
Probably better to check any e-resources you have or talk to your tutor?
