In this section we mainly wanted to raise people’s awareness that there is a limited amount of time left until the examination period, and essays and dissertations are due in. There’s only a few weeks left at the moment so thinking about and preparing for this time now is a good idea!!
From our own experiences, we found it helpful to take a look at our average week and work out how to make the most of our time. We highlighted all the free time that we have once we’ve taken into consideration our part time jobs, lectures and seminars and social and recreational activities.
To provide a comparison of where you are in preparing for exams, dissertations, etc we have included a study blog of every day for the rest of this term to say what we have been getting up to (with a focus on the academic!) which will hopefully either inspire you to move into action or to feel reassured that you are on the right track, or even miles ahead of us!
This is the link to our blog…(we have made up names so it’s at least slightly anonymous!!)
