Exams pressure, Support and Student Ambassadors
The last two weeks have flown by since I last blogged; it only seems like yesterday. For the first time ever I struggled to think of something to blog about. I guess this may have something to do with the academic year coming to an end and for me specifically finishing. However, that didn’t last long! First of all I just want to say to all those who follow my blogs – I’ve submitted my dissertation. I am so pleased that it’s been handed in, but in some strange way I’m also disappointed that it is over. It feels like the end is even closer and the realisation those four years are nearly over; it’s starting to feel real. I’ve now only got one presentation to do next week and one reflective essay to finish off and the end of my degree will be over.
The student ambassadors have started attending events promoting CLL and all the wonderful courses that are on offer. Yesterday John, Rav and myself spent the day at Earlsdon Festival. I personally have attended this festival for well over 5 years now and have seen it grow bigger and better each year. The last few years several of the roads have been closed off in Earlsdon and there has been a lovely community spirit. We even got our photo taken with the Lord Mayor, who stopped to chat with us. He actually used to coordinate the 2+2 degree at City College a number of years now. It’s amazing whom you get to meet on these courses!
I’m attending a few more events over the coming months, so if you want to know more give CLL a call and find out when and where they are and come along and say hello.
For anyone looking revising for exams this is the time of year that extra space is made available. This link will provide details of those extra study spaces: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/centraltimetabling/roominformation/studyspace. There is also a huge amount of support for students during the exam period with workshops and relaxation events to name a few. Again this link gives you an idea of the support available: http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/students/news/newsevents/support_in_term_3 or https://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/library/students/study-happy/. Personally I would suggest the doggie de-stress events, well only if you like dogs I guess! These take place in the library and are normally very popular. For those who have exams coming up good luck, make sure you take time out to rest and relax and try not to put too much pressure on yourself.
