I just want to wish my best to all the distance learning students who are taking exams at the end of the month.
Preparing for an exam as a distant learning student is mainly a lonesome experience so it is highly advisable that you form study groups (in person, via Skype, etc etc).
Above all, you have to be disciplined! No peer-pressure, no teacher to push you, you have to be there to convince yourself to go on through it all!
Be organised, focused and willing to succeed.
Best of luck to all of you!
