Beginning of the end?

I just discovered I didn't do that much revision. I don't even dare to estimate how long I've spent. Everything in the notes seems so unfamiliar. I know some of the stuff but I can't do questions. And exams are consist of questions. Exam stress takes all the concentration out. Leaving me sitting somewhere doing a lot of daydreaming and wondering around. The volume needed to done is expanding all the time, thus underestimation is unavoidable. The stake of the exam is high. Not just the progession to 4th year, but my not-too-much-left reputation as well. I have no idea how I am going to survive the exam. May be this is the beginning of the end? I rather have the end of the beginning, which means that the exams would be a milestone of my so-called career. But there are so many ends. So exams must be an end of some sort. I don't know, that's nothing to do with exam materials and it would be quite time-consuming to proof...

Good and fair

Personelly I think fair exam result is more important than good one. It is because if you are good you get bad result or the other way round due to some unforseen circumstances, that would be quite bad. But even it is fair, sometimes you deserve bad results. And bad results is no good for the future. Looks like I am not too happy with revision. I believe the exam here is fair and would like to get some good results (>60%). More revision!

Euro without England

Another inrelevant blog entry to celebrate exam stress. Euro football tournament this weekend and I am not really a football fan.

Everyone knows England is not in the Euro tournament final this year. Despite the fact that I am in England, I personelly think it is not too bad. It is a good change and I always found people feeling too attached to the national team. Maybe that's because I don't have one. Another point worth noting is we all know England is not as good as everyone considers. It is sort of declining as well.

I like Euro more than World Cup in some sense since the very strong South Americans are absent (obviously) and the unknown teams occupy a smaller percentage. Also, you got a good mix as well. But my exam starts around the time when group stage ends. Still in time for knock-out.

Without England, the final outcome is still quite unpredictable as all international football fans aware. Analysing the groups, it is not too difficult to see that with France, Netherland and Italy in group C, there is a group of death. The fierce competition would ensure high quality of football thus teams in group D would have some difficulties with them in first knock-out stage, but group C may get tired, so again unpredictable. Thus group A and B is safer and easier to guess. I am not going to name a team. Better not get too involved.

Report writing, again!

Another allnighter for my report! 12 hours till deadline! (which is less than 50000s, haha)

It becomes a tradition now (and another blog entry to celebrate that). Dig out old stuff and remember how sad you were is not the way to do before exam revision but that's exactly what I am doing at the moment. I quite like writing precise theory section. But working to produce data of better quality (shhh!) is not a good thing to do yet essential. The worry that something got left out is unbearable depite it is extremely acceptable depending on the amount. My head's hurting, ouch!

P.S. The past has passed. The future is still the future and the present is never absent. All the best and good luck!
