Well I made it back to my student accommodation a few hours ago after a pretty good Christmas and New Years. I have come back a little earlier than most so that I can catch up on all the work that I didn’t do over the holidays. I’m not sure if other people have exams this January and have had some solid revision schedules on the go, but judi online enough mine looked pretty promising at the start but failed to materialize. The first day was great, but after that it was mainly drinking and eating pringles, and in fairness I didn’t even look at my notes.
So now I’m back to get as much work done as possible, I’m sure I will be fine for the exams if I get my head down and work. Physics isn’t the easiest subject in the world but after a while things start to click and everything comes together. So when I get going with revision the work starts to make more and more sense as I go along, so it becomes much easier. However, there is the one module that doesn’t interest me at all and the work is incredibly hard, so the outcome of that exam should be pretty entertaining. I have 5 exams in all to do, each with there own varying difficulty.
Maths Module 1 – Should be easy
Maths Module 2 – Should be easy
Astronomy – Should be fine (multiple choice exam… nice)
Physics Module 1 – Tricky but do-able
Physics Module 2 – Difficult and I don’t enjoy it
So thats the general look of it. I’m guessing with the right amount of work I will pass them, but I can definitely see some exams being far less fun than others.
With very little people being in the student village there is not much to do. My schedule isn’t going to be too packed with going out, so its a great opportunity to get some work done. I’m guessing that the next week or so is going to look something like this:
13.00 – Wake up and sort myself out (I sleep late so you know)
13.30 – Browse Internet, see if theres anything new happening
14.00 – Do some revision
15.00 – Make some food, probably curry or spag bol
15.45 – More revision
17.00 – Go to gym, or squash if I can find a friend
18.30 – Food
19.00 – More revision
21.00 – Browse internet/MSN
23.00 – Revision again
1.00 onwards – I just do very little in this time but I end up staying up quite late, probably until about 4 ish.
So there we go. Its probably the worst schedule ever but I make it work. It would be much better to shift the schedule back a bit so that I start earlier and sleep earlier, but my body clock has been pushed around until I’m almost nocturnal since being in Uni, I don’t know how it happened but it did. So hopefully this works out well, theres plenty of time there to work.
I’ll let you know how things turn out in a few weeks time.
For the last few days I’ve been suffering from a slight pain in my fingers, and I’m guessing that it came from typing so much. So thats why I haven’t posted in a while, but as soon as I’m feeling better I will get some more posts up.
I’m going to invest in an ergonomic keyboard soon I think, and also learn how to touch type. At the moment I just use my two big fingers for typing and it seems to have worked well for me up to this point. Touch typing looks so cool as well when you see other people do it, so I want to be one of those people. The ergonomic keyboard should help with my hand positioning too, and so try and avoid and future pain in my hands or fingers.
The ergonomic keyboard for anyone that doesn’t know is the one with the slanted keys. If you notice when you hold your hands out, they curve inwards slightly, which is why the ergonomic keyboard is more suited to naturally fit the shape of your hands. So it should be great fun trying to get to grips with that.
Now anyways, my fingers are starting to hurt, and I’ve got some revision to do. I’ll catch up in about a week or so’s time.
Good luck to anyone sitting exams!
