Default Exams! Wish me...

Luck? Prosperity? More intelligence? Perseverance?...

You pick! I'll take whatever I can get!

My first exam is tomorrow... English Higher... Two papers... One and a half hours and one hour forty-five respectively...

Then four more subjects over the next three-ish weeks...

I'll update as I go along!

To quote Spock... "I shall simply say: Good luck."

What a bummer for you. I am thankful that my University days are long gone.

All I can say to you is that among my college friends the 'partying slackers' have achieved just as much success as the hard workers!!!

Soon this will be over! Study for 15 minutes, then rest your brain for 5 minutes. They say that's the most productive way to remember stuff.

Good luck to you.

But if you study hard you will not need luck and just apply your skills.

I remember finals week in college in the 80's.

Sometimes it feels like the rest of the campus is partying while you are the only one studying.

But the people who study enough to know the material and ace the class ROCK all others!

WHO do YOU want to be?

I'm so glad to be past all those exams - you eventually realise they are not necessarily make or break for your future (though you do need to work really hard on them!!).

Good luck, let us know how you get along!

Thank you very much for your kind words!

I am actually not at University level yet! I am currently in "High school" or as we say: Secondary school. The Higher exams are the exams that one does at the age of sixteen/seventeen. Kevin, you'll know what I'm talking about!

And as of this morning I sat my Higher English...

And I think that I did Quite well!
