How do you feel with exams approaching?
The thing I dread most about exams must be the hibernation part, and staying in all day cramming in as much information as possible, while working on other assignments and projects, which would be due in the same period of time.
Most times the lecturers’ notes are good enough, but if one is aiming for a high mark, research is essential.
I find it very helpful that the library has extended its opening hours because there is a good environment in which the students can quietly study together. It gives you a sense of motivation and determination to get things done.
While it’s been the most hectic year so far, it has also been the most interesting and fun academic year because we have more practical work to do. Personally I learn more like that rather than just sitting down and taking notes. Francesca Sultana, Bachelor of Communications (Hons) with Psychology, 3rd year.
During the exam period what I dread most is being stressed and late-night studying. Since I refer a lot to books and articles, I find it really helpful and motivating that the library remains open until 11 p.m.
Even though exams are approaching and I am extremely busy, I look forward to enjoying my last year of the course and being successful in my studies. Julia Grech, BA (Hons) Tourism Studies, 3rd year.
When exams are coming I find it challenging to manage my time between doing assignments due for the exam period and studying at the same time. The tension and stress is nearly unbearable.
Although we are given many notes during lectures, conducting further reading on your own is vital to achieve a high grade.
