    Systems Analysis test today. The professor kinda told us what was going to be on the test but he was very vague at the same time.

    I have one week to revise for an upcoming Spanish speaking assessment. I assume I do this more than once throughout the year but if I do it right I have 30% of my Spanish GCSE right there. Which is nice to have, especially when it's easier early on. I'm expected to achieve an A-A*, although I think I'll probably achieve a B at best since I cannot revise for Spanish. I have an idea of what to do - read the paragraphs (there're 8 of them) every night for an hour or so (since when you're about to sleep your mind is focused on less and I guess you'd have that in your head when you're sleeping? I don't know) and every day re-write the paragraphs as close to my original as possible, noting down any key words I forget or mispronounce so I can go over them again. If I do this maybe I'll do well. But it's hard you know? Does anyone here have a particular way of revising for foreign languages? This is mainly for curiosity rather than me looking for actual techniques (although if I like them I might try them).

    These 9AM classes will be the death of me. Even after a full nights sleep I just can't seem to focus well enough in morning classes. And the morning rush on the train is the worst!

    I hate early morning classes. I had been doing 8AM classes for the first several semesters of college. Now I'm doing 9:30 AM classes. Next semester I have days where I don't have class until 1PM. The other days are 9:30AM though...

    Have spent the last 3 1/2 hours preparing my official "cheat sheet" for my math midterm tomorrow. I hope it pays off, because I wasn't able to go to the review session my TA held last night. At least I got a 145/150 on my chem midterm - that was a nice little boost of confidence.

    Thanks ^_^ Actually, I think I ended up doing pretty well on the midterm. Turns out the questions were a lot more straightforward than I thought they were going to be. Thankfully there were no limit problems or 3D graph problems - those really suck lol.

    Everyone and their dog is out on Wednesday but I didn't hand in my form so I'm technically supposed to attend school... I don't know if I should go or not. There wouldn't exactly be 'classes' anyway, but there's some things in the school library I wanted to check out. Should I wake up early to go? Should I...?

    In my experience, when I'm allowed to do that, the more I write down, the less I actually need it. This is because just the act of putting it on paper is studying. But if I don't bother to fill out a sheet I usually do worse.

    Checked my grades this morning and found out I got 100% on my math midterm heck yeah. Now I just need to focus on my history midterm in two days, and then this round of testing will finally be over.

    I've noticed this as well. I always end up writing down a whole bunch of stuff that never gets covered, and/or I've already memorized the most important formulas so I don't have to look at the sheet much. Like you said, it's an effective study tool by itself, but I figure it's there for me if I really need it.

    I know that feel. I have a midterm on the day the games come out and another one three days after that. Darn school getting in the way of bigger priorities >_<

    So turns out both second year film classes are on track to get the worst grades in ten years. Whoops.
    The head of dept is tearing his hair out and has been forced to give us another month to sort all our coursework out, mainly because the exam is one of the hardest a-levels to get an A on and we need all the coursework marks we can get. So that's one thing I'm going to be spending a lot of time on.
    Also the same head of dept just dropped the media coursework brief on both classes and told us we have until next Tuesday to submit our first draft of our 2,000 word essay....which no-one has any idea how to write.

    It's purely coincidental that I've developed insomnia these past few days but it's going to come in handy for doing all-nighter's in order to get all this done.
    Found my way back here after what seems like forever, not much has changed.

    Last midterm of the semester coming up tomorrow, excited to get that done. Multivariable Calculus midterm on partial derivatives and double/triple integrals so conceptually it shouldn't be too bad. That said I don't feel prepared enough but I'm not going to worry myself too much about that. Partial derivatives and multiple integrals aren't very difficult to understand anyway.

    Finally my history midterm is over. I think I did okay overall - most of the questions were pretty easy, but there were a few that I couldn't remember the exact term that was being asked for. There was also a short essay portion which I kind of threw together, but hopefully my answer was satisfactory enough.

    Now I get to relax until next week when I have to start studying for my second chem and math midterms... joy...

    Well my midterm didn't go over as well as I'd hoped, though I did walk in feeling less prepared than I could have been. Not going to worry about it too much though, all I can do now is worry about finals at this point, which won't be until mid December.

    On a better note I got my results on my article on Latin American studies and I did well enough that I can afford to opt out of the second article and make this article 30% of my grade, as opposed to doing a second one and making both 15% of my grade. It works out beautifully since the first draft of this second article is due on Monday immediately after OR/AS, so I'm glad I can skip this article completely.

    Bio test Tuesday, but I'm not too worried. There's an awful lot of tests and assessments, but no true homework lately. I guess that's a good thing, but if it's not homework, I tend to have a lot of trouble getting myself to study.

    My media lecturer turned around to our class today and announced that we have to finish our coursework 2 weeks earlier than expected.
    So that's a thing.
    And my college wonders why their entire film and media student body is stressed out...

    Today, being a Tuesday, I usually only have one class to go to. But apparently the professor got sick today and she couldn't make it. So I had a day off. I'm loving today, I decided to start watching Pokemon from episode 1, and play Crystal along with it.

    I just had two tests today, One Chemistry, the other my computer class. I really didn't want to take any of them since I was really annoyed this morning. I bet I did horrible on my computer one, but passed my Chemistry one......

    Damn, had my Biology exam today (last ones before finals) and wow, it was hard. I just hate how it was all of these stuff we didn't really talk about much and there were a lot of trick questions, so that was gahhh. I wish we had an easy one before the finals, you know?
