I'm not taking exams, but I know lots of people are! So if you want to share your exam woes, stresses, results or stories, post here! Or even just school/college/uni stuff!
I'm always intrigued about people's education. I've literally gone as far as you can without doing a doctorate, so I'm a big supporter of education. Plus, I work at a university, so I'm basically a loser. Haha.
So what are you studying? What are you interested in?
Also, I've looked over personal statements for two street teamers applying to uni - one for undergrad and one for postgrad - so if anyone else is nervous about their applications, I'm happy to help!

I loved doing exams at school, does that make me a geek? haha! My only A was in German!!! I remember sitting down to do my Childcare exam and the lens fell out of my specs! I had to do it with my hand over one eye so i could focus properly because they wouldnt let me out to fix it!
I'm just about to start an open uni course, I cant afford to go back into education full time and its taken me this long to work out what i want to do. The degree is in Psychology and Criminology and I hope to narrow it down to Behavioural Science further down the line! I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into it!
*~*~* if you show me heaven, I will meet you there*~*~*

That is a tad geeky. LOL. I never loved exams, though I never got stressed like some people. I don't LOVE education either - I couldn't, for example, do an open university course because it's so self-motivated. What I enjoy is the community of education, classes and lectures, etc. Solo studying I find quite difficult. I really like working as a team, group work, projects, etc. I like group discussion about relevant topics. Though I was a tad bit of a know it all during my last degree. Haha. Only because I'd already worked in industry, so knew a lot about the field we were studying.
Your degree sounds really interesting, Jen! Not my field really - I'm one of those arty farty worthless degree types - but I live with a CSI and I'm learning a lot more about sciencey, crimey type stuff than I ever cared to know before! LOL.

I found out my exam results today I got a B in my English Language GCSE, but my teacher wants me to resit in the summer because I was 10 marks of an A, so I should get an A next time *yay* I got an A in Module 4 of Maths, which is the final coursework. I was supposed to get A* but the examiners decided to lower everoynes marks by one grade, so the school are complaining I have a Science exam on Wednesday, which I am really nervous about, but I'm going to revice (never revised before) so hopefully I will do well
