Our student bloggers share their best tips for studying, revision and making it through the exam period
One of the biggest benefits o studying a writing degree is that there are no exams whatsoever. I hate exams. Honestly, what’s the point? You cram, stay up all night beforehand worrying, then you spend a couple of hours in a worryingly smelly hall and it’s all over. 30 or 40 or 50 percent of your module is balanced on those moments.
I think one of my favourite things (heavy, heavy sarcasm) is coming home from University, sticking my feet up, turning the tele on with a nice cuppa in my hand only to realise that I have 3 deadlines coming up in the next 4-6 weeks that I haven’t started. Feet down, tele off, coffee made extra-large. Oh, what a joyous time. And despite all of my emails to the University explaining that 3000 word essays “aren’t very Christmassy”, they still persist to lay them on us. Therefore, I’ve managed to come up with a few helpful tips and tricks to help stay on track over the holidays. Be it Easter, summer, Christmas, or Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you).
