Exam Week – Round 2

So, exams have come around once more. I can’t believe that it was 12 weeks since our last CAA exams and we are now entering our last week of groundschool.

“Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.”

I feel as though I’m ready for them, but I know that I can’t rest on my laurels and not do more revision – I already feel bad for having taken two afternoons off this week!

We shall have to wait and see how they go but for now, I just have to focus on them and remember that in just over two weeks time, I will be heading off to New Zealand.

Study is the bane of childhood, the oil of youth, the indulgence of adulthood, and a restorative in old age…

Walter Savage Landor

Without study, everything really would just be harder. We all dislike doing it, look at all the people who take to Twitter and Facebook, myself included, when GCSEs and A Levels come around to complain that they’re fed up of studying and that they think it’s really hard.

Revising has just been my life for the past couple of weeks in the run up to my mocks. And it seems to have worked!
We’ve already done three of the mock exams and I ended up with a 92% average in them, so all the revision that I did seems to have paid off. Now it’s just a case of carrying this momentum forwards into my remaining mocks and onto the real exams as well.

There are more men ennobled by study than by nature.
