    Deathmage, Aikanaro: Hang in there guys, summer holidays are near. :)

    In my life: Virology, Physiology both in the next ten days.
    And two other, pretty chubby exams on the horizon.

    July sounds like a word from paradise.

    nearly ... ****ing ... done. Just can't get one goddamn class to work, but otherwise this program is working. I may have been sitting in this ****ing room for the past 20 hours, and will probably be here a while longer - but this assignment is almost, almost done and to an almost, almost competent degree.

    Aikanaro: Hurray! :)

    In my life, the traditional June exam rush is in full bloom. One exam each week till the first of July.

    Today and tomorrow - physiology.

    I admire your courage and patience, Aikanaro - I could not have pulled off twenty hours straight working...producing Weekend Essays are more my specialty. :p

    Updated on student life: Class test today was easy as hell, next Monday; Japanese oral. Shouldn't be hard. Last lectures on Monday too. After that, study break. Then, exams. w00t.

    Finishing the assignment took around 27 hours, literally finishing 10 minutes before it was due (and 'finished' in a loose sense - some of it just didn't work, other bits were shoddy). Overall, not too bad. For an all-nighter, it was relatively sane. No one crying on the floor, screaming, etc. Just lots of frustration and slow trundling progress.

    But we prevailed, fueled by chocolate and grapefruit juice :)

    Gabs, I know your pain, I had sixteen summer exams for A levels and twenty seven for GCSEs. No idea why it was so many either!

    And I was confused by Fairie's 16 exams. 8 did 27?

    There were only two of us in the school who sat 9 exams- everyone else did 8 (I think it even dropped to 7 for the years beneath us)! Am I missing something?

    Of course!

    I'm not sure how many I sat when counting each paper separately- 'twas too long ago now.

    Yay, i may have failed my Uni exams, which I wasnt confident about, but I passed the modules cos of my coursework. Means I now have a degree, but i'm gonna make it an honours this year.

    Also, did anyone find DM's statement a bit dodgy, Japanese Oral? o_0
