    Motivating yourself to study is always the toughest part especially because you're not in that "learning environment" and it can get lonely, but apart from that I actually enjoyed it lol.

    I should mention though that it depends when your module starts - if it starts in October then yeah exams are in the summer.
    The way that the modules were structured meant that you're studying until about April/May, so the summer (May/June) is when you sit the exam.

    i know i feel so unmotivated but i end up doing most work when im behind and got a deadline. got a TMA due on the 6th and havnt started much of it. its good though as i can study full time and work full time. i chose OU as im abroad this year and may be next year so i was wondering about exams as i would have to fly back to the UK for them.


    i started my seconds module in february and its running till the end of september
