"I have never…

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

…done so little work the evening before an exam."

No doubt anyone who saw the paper aeroplane post will be unsuprised by this, but hey. Today has consisted of doing 5 back-to-back Solid State Physics 1 papers (1.5 hours each) in just under 3 hours, and, unless my lecture notes all lie hideously, getting 1sts on all of them, and then explaining some stuff to friends.

Double edged sword that. On the one hand, it makes me feel good to know that a) I can explain it so that other people can understand and b) I know more than other people. On the other hand, what with normalising of examination results, I always feel as if sharing my precious knowledge is therefore devaluing it, helping to lower my mark in the exam itself. Am I the only one who has this mean little thought kicking around in the back of my head?

Since about 6:30 however I've just been wasting time. The feeling that I could possibly learn some more before 9:30 tomorrow morning has been outweighed by the lack of caring, and the confidence in what I do know. Hopefully it will be enough, but it could all go horribly wrong. I guess I'll find out tomorrow…
