It’s that time of year again. The time of year that strikes fear into the heart of even the most committed student- revision. Exams are looming, all the chocolate has been eaten, and now is the time to get some work done.
At Leicester we have two times for exams each year, and with January exams already over, then it’s making me feel a lot more confident about May. I have three exams this time, two worth 80% of a module each, and one worth 50%. The rest of my mark is made up through coursework and problem sheets that we complete each week, and it’s very reassuring to know that not everything relies on the final exam.
I have been studying for these exams, and although at first the amount that we have to learn is a little bit scary, I’ve been summarising and writing all my definitions and hopefully I’ll be well on my way to learning everything I need to by May. I’ll be writing more about how I’ve found the exams and what happens afterwards in later weeks.
