but what the....i'm revising my arse off aiming for a 2i, that would be amazing if i got one of those! What on earth are you aiming for in these exams?

Tbh I think I'm almost maxxed out on the revision...I just have to hope for a nice ML question I can make sense of (and figure out a solution to), a nice discrete maths question covering material mainly in the part i've revised, and then other nice questions.

so put simply, I'm leaving a lot of this to chance!
I don't know what I'm aiming for. I started my year aiming for a first. After the Jan progress test I know 2:i should be a minimum. But now. I'm sitting here, reflecting what I've done for this exam, I don't even care what I have anymore. I need a 2:i to get a intern next year. So 2:i is the thing I'm looking at.

I don't know what maxxed out feels like. I gave up before I'm maxxed out.

maxed out is when you go to bed at 8am and get up at 12pm because they *might* have something decent for lunch, and anyway you were too tired to go and hand in your maths supervision work at 8am because you'd been working (and facebook-ing) since 7pm the night before. on no proplus or coffee. and then you realise "actually, i still know f*ck all".
That's not a good way to prepare for exams.

even if you do loads and loads of revision you kind of have to leave stuff to chance. it's physically impossible to know *everything* here, especially in natsci!
I dunno if that's comforting or not. It would be if it were true, but I know people here who do know everything on the course. Or at least ten questions per paper, I'm only aiming for 9,7,7 per paper

I don't. I just can't be bothered to care about the results anymore. I want to live. Sure, getting a 1st would be great. But... I just want to watch Scrubs, Family Guy and Ally McBeal... and One Tree Hill too.

YAY for someone who gets the "you only have to pass" thing. Seriously - if you do well this year it only means you have to work harder next year to better it!! get a 3rd this year, a 2:2/2:1 next, and a 1st in your finals - consistent improvement!!



ps if your a first year that is if you're a natsci you are lowest of the low - nobody really cares what class you get as long as you pass.

the money you get for a 1st wouldn't go amiss though
