    Well this year will be my last semester and i've just 4 subjects left but only 2 exams, the rest is my final project and the other one is just presentation based. I'm also in charge of organizing a tournament of a football matched which i'm quite excited about lol, so quite busy near to the end of the semester. Well, i'm really interested to add 2 additional subjects that i'm really interested in, but if i take it then it will be 6 subjects which will be 4 paper based exams.

    Should i take it? Currently my grades are good. I think i will manage to get a first, but if i add the additional subjects, then perhaps i will decrease my chances of either a first or a high 2:1. Not to say i'm not confident with the additional subjects (really adore the lecturer who will teach me one of the additional subject. She can deliver the lecture well, and i think i can get good marks with her.) Well is just a matter of 'overall' what do you think? The final project and presentations will have more work to it but perhaps i can managed it.

    Any suggestions, advice, tips, anything is really appreciated

    During my final yea I took an extra ten credits (one lecture series) on something that intrested me more. I had a crazy first semester for my final year which was not good. In essence however i really enjoyed it and did not regret it. It helped me get to a PhD as well.

    Its not as easy as you think sorting it all out mind you and you will have to bug a few people. You need to see the head of who makes the undergrad programme in your department if you want to get anything sorted out.

    And finally remember you are going to have more exams to revise for!

    This is true. Not only i've to go to the head, i also need to see the academic affairs department, and finally the lecturer. It's hard work but perhaps it's worth it to get those subject that have my interest..

    so, is it advisable? what's your opinion? Should i just retained my current modules and be done with it or get the extra subjects?

    out of curiosity, what subject did you take as an extra subject?

    I did Geology so I took Basin Dynamics (a sort of advanced Geophysics) which I did very well in. Just depends on how intrested you are in the subject. personally I would just do one that is enough. It is an extra workload but if you enjoy it I dont feel like that matters
