Assignments: the scourge of studying at uni. Well, not really, since at least you have unlimited time at your disposal to finish them, right? Wrong. So, assignments: gift or curse? This semester, I’m leaning towards curse, having my assignments due at the end of semester. Sure, it seems great to start off with, like you have the whole semester ahead of you before they’re due. Only later do you realise these assignments have eaten into your revision time for your encroaching exams. Because these end of semester assignments aren’t an alternative to exams, no sir. They’re in addition. This is my journey from acknowledgement, to procrastination, to progress, and, finally, to submission.
