    Lets bump this shit. Just got back from my first final for this semester. It was a final in Financial Math. Definitely harder than I thought it would be, but not too bad overall. I did have to guess on what a "down and out" option meant, but I think i got it correctly.

    The killer is tomorrow, my stat theory class. The amount of material that we need to know for this class is absolutely insane.

    So, who else is taking finals, or will be taking finals soon?

    I was taking six classes this semester in order to be done with law. Quite hectic.

    Just finished writing my fifth exam. I have securities on Thursday and then I'm free. I'll only have two online poli-sci classes to do to finish degree, which should be a joke.

    Bar school, here I come. [​IMG]

    I start my second-semester of law school exams on Wednesday with Civil Procedure II. After that, only Con Law, Contract and Criminal to go - then 10 days of a writing competition.

    Should be a fun time.

    Me too.

    2.66 first semester and 3.93 second semester of my first year.

    Ended up with honors and a 3.6, but the sting of that first semester doesn't really go away.


    I had a similar experience freshman year. I'm still trying to make up for it.

    I'm finishing up the last paper of my law school career. [​IMG] Then tomorrow, start preparing for 3 back-to-back final exams during the week after next. [​IMG] But, I'm glad it's the beginning of the end--at least until bar exams time. [​IMG]

    Just handed in my last exam for this finals week to conclude what has been, and will likely remain, the most difficult semester of my academic career.

    I wrapped up my semester last Saturday morning. I've been bored out of my mind since but at least I know where I'll be this Thursday afternoon.

    I wish I was finished.[​IMG]

    I have been ill for a few weeks and so I am now behind, with two papers to submit in the next few weeks and then two exams.

    Performance wise, I got 3 'firsts', two '2:1's' and a '2:2' (don't ask) in my first year and in the first semester of my second year I got 3 'firsts'. (we have 3 modules per semester)

    I have had 3 papers returned this semester and have scored 'firsts' in them all, so hopefully I will not screw up the remaining papers and exams and finish with a few 'firsts' in my modules this semester, although it is a big ask and I doubt I will replicate my first semester performance.

    If I can get 1 or 2 this semester I will be well setup for getting a first overall, as I need to score 'firsts' in 6 of the 12 counting modules (first year modules do not count towards degree classification)

    Good luck to all SF scholars in exams!

    PS Conne, lets have a read of your Ulster paper!

    I have two exams today, which I have been up all night studying for. Then two quizzes to follow those exams. Then have another exam on Friday. And yet another one on Monday.

    Then finals next week. Why do professors feel the need to have exams the week before finals? It's just killing my body, and bothers me to no end when people talk about time management because I manage my time pretty damn well and I still find it hard to get more than a couple hours of week during exam weeks. I'll be happy to walk away with a 3.75 this semester if I don't die before the semester is over from exhaustion.

    Ditto, I just got out of my first exam and I have 4 major ones left and my eyes feel like they are going to fall out from reading. When people talk about time management, I tell them, "Here's how I manage my time, eat, sleep, study."

    Working on three 1 1/2 page essays due at 3pm today. I'm a little hungover though so we'll see how this goes. I only need a 28/30 on this to get an A in the class but i really don't care anymore since i'm graduating.

    Another exam at 8pm tonight for my islamic science and astronomy class. I'm killing that class so i don't need much for my A. Just gonna brush up a bit beforehand and go take it and be done. Probably get some alcohol in me later.

    Mine is more around study, work, study, nap, repeat. I would say sleep but I don't consider 3-4 hours a night a real night sleep. [​IMG]

    I have my first exam of the ones I mentioned in about 15 minutes. Gogogo Biostatistics that I will never use ever again. At least I can use foreign language and Organic Chemistry for something later.

    I know its late just a tip..you must review 2 weeks before the finals so that on your finals week..there's no need to study because you are prepared..

    not possible. 2 weeks before finals, classes are still going on, which means hw sets still have to get done and more material is being covered. For the finals, material till the last day of class is covered.
