Today was my hardest exam and the one I was most worried about. But despite my worries, I think I did okay in it. That is to say, I think I got at least 40% (but let’s not be toooo confident, shall we?).
The worst thing about being a 3rd year Maths student, is that
1) Most of my exams count for 100% of the module,
2) There’s no chance of retaking them so you CANNOT fail, and
3) Overall, this year is worth 60% of my degree, so if I do badly in these exams, it could dramatically affect my grade.
A lot of people tend to worry after the exam about things they should have done differently or say the classic “I should have revised more” line. But how much more do you really think you could have done? If you really think about the weeks leading up to your exams, could you have done more? Did you want to do more? My guess is the answer is probably “no”.
I have the 1-down-3-to-go approach to exams. I can’t go back and change what I’ve already done (unless someone has a time machine…anyone?) so I hope and pray, and move on to the next one. There’s no point fretting about it!
