Blog 1 of 2009
Well Good Evening there...
I know technically its not evening but anyhow. Here is Blog 1 of the 3 I'm going to be writing in relatively quick succession over the next week after all my exams (Monday I've got 2 so it'll be an evening blogging).
Had my first exam today, I must say that repeating my year has made me stress about these exams a lot more than i usually would have. To be honest I actually feel pretty confident about the exam itself. I knew answers to all the questions which is always good. Even remembering all the equations they asked about which is always a good thing to happen, I just wish i could find out my results sooner rather than later, I got a 78% First in my Statistics and Computation Module (after being weighted down 5% :( ).
The only thing I think I'm worrying mainly about in this exam is whether i went into enough detail. On some of the questions it was 9marks for just putting in an equation and the SI units. But what happens if they wanted more detail? I shouldn't stress over it tbh. This module was 50% Coursework in which I averaged a mid 1st so hopefully that'll help me get at least a 2:1 (hopefully a first) for this module (better than the 2:2 I had in it last year).
I'm pretty happy though how my revision for the other 3 exams i have this period are going, revision wise. I'm confident about answering the Microstructure questions (I only got 23% in it this time last year - lack of revision on my part on top of stressing for the exam that was before it in the day), Physical Properties is going to be a pretty hard exam and I'm feeling ok about Crystal Structures and Defects. Spending 9-10 hours in the library every day for the past 2 weeks to get revision done has helped a lot though! I've not done any revision in the 4 hours since my exam finished. Decided to have a small break and watched the new Smallville Episode on Youtube.
Good thing that they all end on wednesday, I've got a birthday to go to in the evening which i forsee could end up with quite a lot of alcohol consumed just as a massive wind down from the stress of the past 2 weeks. Friday is a planned Pub Golf session with some mates from maths so that should be another heavy evening.
Then friday 6th february is going to be a Playzone session with SUCS so thats something to look forward to. My first sucs event as Publicity Officer. Hope it goes off without a hitch!
