    okay, i've posted a couple of questions on here before....anyway, i'm a study abroad student from the US and will be studying at Queen Mary this fall, and I was wondering what this reading week was about. Since i'm studying abroad, I'm want to try and see a couple other countries while i'm there, so i'm definitely trying to find certain times throughout my stay that i can travel for a couple days. Is reading week just like a week to catch up with everything and get ready for the second half of the semester? Do teachers assign a lot of work over that week or tests on the next class back? I'm just curious because if that week isn't too important, i might try to travel a couple of those days. i'm not too worried about classes (i hope that doesn't make me sound like a snob, i'm really not. haha), i'm just fulfilling the rest of my gen ed's and it's on a pass/fail basis with no effect to my GPA here.

    so if anyone could fill me in on this, i'd really appreciate it!

    Erm, I think you want me to explain what reading week is, so here's what I think it is:

    One week of alchohol and clubbing.

    I kid I kid, but rather it's one week of hard studying, catching up on what you don't know, etc. There's a chance of mid-terms during it and so on.
