Chronic procrastinator over here. Rn in 2nd year of computing and management and messed up this semester for sure as I havent been to any lectures and didnt do any work outside. So I will be Learning from scratch and NOT revising. I have 5 exams starting on monday which leaves me about 3 days, each exam spaced out by about 4 days. I plan to give my all once I am up tommorrow and work on each module for 3/4 days as they come by.

I only want to pass each module (%40) so theres abit less pressure+the fact that I will be given another chance in the summer if I fail any now which I will try to avoid at any cost as I dont want a ruined summer.

I was in similar situations in first year and managed to pull through (maybe not as extreme as this though)

Any tips or similar situations??

You will be fine just do practice papers rather than making too many notes

I was in a very similar position in my first year too (I never learn). Best thing to do is to to tell yourself:
1. You just want to pass it, be realistic no point wanting 50/60%+ its only going to add to the stress
2. Give it all you have but try not to be sleep deprived cos that **** messed me up, sleep at least 6 hours and esp before exam days.
3. Lastly NO stress whatsoever, know that you will most likely be given a 2nd chance in the summer to pass each module. In your mind take these exams as practice ones

Hopefully we pass these exams now coz I dont want to be studying over summer but who cares if I have to

Glad it went good for u bro. My first exam was okay I guess and I think for this one I flopped; I missed one concept that ended up being a large last question so I lost a lot of marks. Probably going to resit it but whatever. Last two for me I'm pretty confident on one of them but the other I have to put the work in. Good luck in your future exams 🙏
