Usually with the large gaps between lectures I'll get some work out of the way if I haven't already finished it in my tutorial sessions. Not sure about some of you, but I'm aiming for a 50% minimum in all my subjects this year. 40% is just cutting it too close.
Was pretty gutted when I found out I got 33/60 on a test I thought I did ok in. As the lecturer said though, 30+ is fair....Guess you can't have the best of both worlds.
Me neither, but plenty of problem sheets.

admittedly there are gaps between the hours given but when you have the odd hour break you tend to do sod all. Also my uni is about a 40 min walk away form my hall so i seem to spend half my day walking up hills. Combined with extra ciricular stuff and going out its hard to find the time to get everything done.
between now and christmas i've got to do 3 essays, write and learn my 3rd oral of the term, do a fat booklet of exercises as well as all my weekly homeworks and typing up my lecture notes (although this is self inflicted). The differences between alevel and uni essays is that you've got to do a hell of a lot of reading and you can't just get away with copying big chunks out of a book. Its relatively easy to pass but its hard to get decent marks. When i forst started i had a real inferiority complex because its hard to be surrounded by lots of people that are very good at their subject.
