It’s that time of the year again. The time, I’m sure, that many students have been dreading. If you don’t know what this is, you soon will. When our future rests on good quality internet and, admittedly, on the hope that everybody else has forgotten what’s yet to come. Soon we will all be sitting in front of our computer screens, chewing our fingernails nervously, while we’re faced with the horror of the below screen for what will be the final time for many of us:
Well, the last few days have been a bit of a roller coaster really. And it’s not just the mountain of assessment that I’m talking about. What I’m referring to are exams. A bit pre-emptive, I know, but bear with me. When I took my first glimpse at my draft exam timetable earlier this week, I took it in my stride. It’s true, my exam schedule was a bit unfortunate, but it was something I figured I would just work around. That’s when I saw everyone else’s reaction.

We’re our own class of people, with our own curious habits and experiences. So, for those who are already in the world of study, this is an invitation for reflection and hopefully a few mental giggles. For those strangers to the stresses and excitement of studying, here’s a snapshot of what you’re missing. So, here goes… Enjoy!
