Scraped it!

Finally, proof that "The Fear" is the single greatest revision aid known to man!

I scraped a first! 71% baby, it's the only way to be! Maybe in my 3rd and 4th years I'll try to work throughout the year, and gain a better understanding of things, but then hopefully the stuff we're learning will be of some vague interest rather than a quick skim over numerous random topics.

Anyway, don't let anyone ever tell you that learning entire topics the day before the exam is irresponsible or impossible. Just explain that nothing motivates people to learn like "The Fear"!

  1. Of course, the fact that last minute revision worked means you haven't been shocked into changing your attitude.

    Every year I started revision later and later because I somehow always got the marks I was looking for. If i'd actually got a bad mark in one year I may have been motivated to work harder the next, but it never happened.

    In the first year I was starting looking at the material for the first time (ever) maybe 3–4 days before the exam, in the second year it was effectively day before except for the first one. In the third year they were all the day or night before. In the 4th year it was mostly starting revision midnight before the exam, only one of my modules was below a 2.1 in the 4th year.

  2. I relied on the fear as well. This gave me a major problem in my final year when it just wouldn't come. Revising 3 final year physics modules in one night isn't possible. Especially when you run out of paper at 5am, and have to compress an entire module for which everyone else has ~20 pages of notes onto the bit of cardboard from the back of your pad
