I dunno?

We're not at school anymore so the satisfaction of having time off isn't really there anymore... uni is hardly demanding, even on a law course.

Also, 4 weeks off, then another 3-4 weeks before exams? I should kind of be revising but there's still a bit of time left.

I dunno, I'm really bored at home already and we're less than a week in?!

I have four weeks off as well and this is my second week. As a final year law student I can tell you that I personally need these four weeks to get through all my work. My course is very demanding and I would be worried if I didn't have anything to do when it is coming up to exams

I agree it is quite a lot, wouldn't have minded it at 6th form but uni is basically a big holiday anyway... it's a hassle to come home and face reality :p:p

I would rather have less time off at Easter and Christmas, and get half terms instead.

Really annoying having 4 weeks off then 3 weeks more teaching when we get back, because I can't revise everything in this 4 weeks since we haven't learned it. :mad:

Get six weeks off too. Going to start revising as soon as possible for these exams to make up for my terrible coursework.

We've got 5 weeks off, including the whole of April. I'm planning on coming back after 2 weeks though because a) I'll get bored otherwise; b) I'll struggle to focus on revision away from uni

Having more time off does not actually mean 'more time off' unfortunately :lol:

I've got 1 more teaching week, then 3 weeks off, then exams, then 3 month summer holiday. I'm pretty relieved. I'm absolutely mentally drained right now. So many deadlines D:

I always say uni is a massive holiday. Last year next year in Leeds and I'm going to go wild like every night before the real world back home.

I've got 3 weeks. It wouldn't be so bad but I have no essays due, no coursework to finish, and since we haven't covered all the content yet revision is a lot more difficult. Not a lot to do and I'm definitely bored already.

I've got 3 huge law exams and a small essay. I've never spent this much time revising though. Will start on the weekend/Monday which leaves me 3 weeks of Easter and 4 more weeks before exams.

What are you doing all day?

Yeah I know what you mean! It's so annoying. Like I had my first lec on Wed about the exam.. But we were told to read the text in the 3 weeks... But there's another text we need to read, the lec said we'll look at that when Easter is over... So annoying!

I think it depends on what you are doing.

I've got two weeks off starting tomorrow and there assignments due in four weeks, so for me it's a good chance to get some work done without having to toddle off to uni.

I had no work to do over christmas and that felt FAR too long.

I break up today for four weeks and I'm not looking forward to it as I have a lot of revision to do (9 exams, eek) and sitting in your bedroom revising is so boring and lonely.
