2nd year Food Science and nutrition student and I have exams in January and I'm really stressed out about them, I'm trying my best to revise but nothing is going in and i also feel like I never do enough.
Its starting to effect my sleeping and eating and i don't really know what to do.
I have emailed my uni but obviously they wont reply till early January which gives me over a week to stress out more without hearing anything...
Can anyone give me any advice?

I've got one essay based exam, which I hate the format of... but don't worry and focus on what you can in the time you have left, and make sure you don't waste time on irrelevant pieces of information.
I'm sure you'll be alright.
Good luck !!

You'll be fine. Postgrad student here, with 5 exams too.

While they're open book, quite alot to revise and understand.

But hey ho, its all a means to an end right?

Just take regular breaks, study in small chunks or whatever works best for you in order to let the information absorb in.

Trust me, open book is harder than closed book. There is no time to waste flicking through your folders let alone going through books.

Joining you guys on this one need to start revision properly tomorrow (or at all). Realised I've not done an essay exam since GCSE English six and a half years ago, and badly then. God help me.
