To have survived the winter break, without a doubt has been a massive achievement. In fact, even that is an understatement.
Admittedly, I did underestimate how tough of a challenge it would be to complete those essays. From the researching, to the writing, reading to the editing and finally finishing with the referencing and the numerous amounts of re-editing, it honestly came to a point where I thought it was never going to end.
Alas! This weekend marked the time where I could finally say I that I was finished and ready to submit those two papers that have literally consumed my life over the past never ending 6 weeks.
Something that you may have already picked up on from my previous posts is my surprised reaction at how challenging writing these essays has been. Understandably, many people consider assessed essays to be 100% easier than revising for an exam, however, this hasn’t been the case for me personally.
There may come a time when I realise that I may experience a sudden fierce backlash for saying this, but I cannot deny that exams are much more preferable when compared with essays! Whether it is because I have become accustomed to surviving exams or that I just prefer to write an essay in three hours and be done with it … I am not sure. However, one thing that I have realised is that I would have rather sat exams this January as opposed delving into the inner depths of the fairness of ancillary relief and the Human Rights Act!
Nevertheless, I guess that I should be careful for what I wish for, considering that I now have four exams to look forward to this Summer …
However, before I leave, I would love to know your opinion on this matter… whether you prefer essays or exams! So please feel free to comment in the box below!
Whereas, I will have to depart for now and finally begin my EU reading….
