#6 Cognitive Science
Today I finish my degree. Sweet. I might see you at Top B.
update: This is really really sureal. This is the last time I'll be studying Psychology: the last time I'll be studying for this degree. The last 3 years are finally culminated in these last few hours. How the whole degree turns out could be determined by how this exam turns out. Again it depends on what questions come up. If a question on Dynamic Systems Theory turns up then I'll jump for joy as I've found it very interesting and done lots of background reading and think I can really nail an essay on that. But then who knows. The only thing I really know is that at 4pm I'll be a free man and in the union having a nice cold pint :)

#5 Applied Social Psychology
Expected mark: 30–45%
This paper didn't go too badly despite what others think. Mainly because I revised the right things and they didn't. Well it still wasn't great, but I don't think I did too badly.
Absolutely shattered now though.

To top it off. It was awful. But then that wasn't just me, everyone found it really difficult – even the really clever ones, which made me feel better. Can't say I got a good mark on that one..
Oh well onto the next one.
#3 The Self in Social Psychology
Update. After having looked at it yesterday and been in the grid since 5.30 this morning trying to understand and remember it all.. it is not going in. I've had 5–6 hours sleep over the last 2 days and its suddenly taking its toll. I now understand why the Dr. said that I need to rest. I feel f*cking awful and can't concentrate on anything. Shit shitty McShit shit.
ARGH! I was previously going to guess 55%–65% again as I'm not huge at social psychology, but revised estimate = 40–50%
Next exam after this is tomorrow morning at 9.30. However Im more confident of that one, so I'm planning on going home at 12 and sleeping for a few hours before going back to the library :(

This afternoon at 2pm in Westwood, my final exams get underway. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried.
#1: Issues in Families and Development
I've concentrated on Psychological Problems and the effects on Parenthood, Marital Conflict, Single Mothers and Lesbian Mothers for the first section and then Developing disorders, comorbidity and Dyslexia for the second section.
We'll see how it goes. Guesstimation from past papers and lack of knowledge this morning is anywhere from 55-65%
Good luck everyone.
