    RP I'm concerned, I still haven't started seriously studying (apart from half-an-hour yesterday at a mate's place) and it's not long now till the exam starts. I know I need to get 30% to pass, but still, it's a little foreboding...please, some encouraging words here would be hot.

    Well JE... look at it this way. By simply sitting the exam, you're gauranteed at least 50% on it. All you need to do is produce some sort of essay which is legible and contains relevant information to the topic... it's too easy.

    Ah the joy of legal studies - the subject where you can do no work all year and still get top marks for everything.

    Don't worry Jet-Eye, after four years of ahem..."studying" for exams, the best way I've found to do it is to read the majority of the class notes and make sure you're calm on the day...

    or you know, I've heard that cramming three hours before the exam while drinking jolt cola so the info's fresh in your head works well too... :)


    And speaking of finished and clear... what's the ritual for everyone else once exams and the like are over?

    Generally a few milks followed by a summer of drinking and debauchery... Or at least that's what FBS, PoT and I have planned.

    Jolt Cola eh Pulsar? I'll account next time..

    Brutus emerges from the ashes!


    What a dead-set exam that was, but hell,it was legible, it was relevant (to an extent) and it was at times rather extremist, enough to put a great big capital 'P' on my results paper :) . Thank christ that one's over, but **** it, I have another two left. Malouf.

    Only one more to go for mine; Epidemiology, which is as fun as it sounds.

    The only thing working against me is about a 10% attendance for tutes and lectures in this subject all year. Could come back to haunt me.

    Oh well, see you all this weekend lads and sundry lasses. (This means you TJ)

    i BLOODY DARE any member of the VicFF to go into an exam, rip up the exam paper, throw it into the air, yell repeatedly: "It's snowing! IT'S SNOWING!".
    then as soon as the last ripped shread has hit the ground, calmly walk up to the examiner and ask in hushed tones as to whether you could have another paper because you lost yours.

    I've been wanting to do that all year.

    I'm starting serious study at quarter to one, after my method of "pretend you'll do okay" fell down at the end of a practice exam.

    Heil Huggard.
