Which student are you?

Mostly A's
'Know it all Nancy' - You're always one step ahead of the game and just love learning new things, anything extra you can do to develop your knowledge and skills you're all over it! Not afraid to answer in a seminar and are always encouraging others to better themselves, happy to give a helping hand where they can - you have your life together.

Mostly B's
No idea Nick - You're not sure what's going on most of the time but somehow you've made it this far. Your laid back style can stress other people out (Stresshead Sue) but you're quite happy dragging yourself along at your own pace. Never knowing when their exams or deadlines are but somehow you'll make it through.

Mostly C's 
Stresshead Sue - Not the sort of person people want to be around when it's exam season or assignment hand-in day, you are the first in line to enter the exam room as you frantically read through your notes even though you've basically spent all year revising! When the exam ends you're no better, asking people what they put for each answer and worrying that you put something completely different.

Mostly D's
Casper the Ghost - For you, staying in bed is definitely the better option over attending a 9am lecture. Even though you haven't been to any lectures so far this year, it's still not something you consider doing. On exam day when they enter the room, everyone looks at you like they've seen a ghost, "does he even go here?"

Mostly E's 
Begging Barry - Group study is the best study right? You'll always ask your peers for the class notes, even though you sat through the whole lecture with them and same goes for revision notes, it's a lot easier to copy someone else's notes instead of writing your own. You tend to cram in all the revision for the year on the night before, an all-nighter in the library is definitely a regular occurrence for you.

We hope this has given you an enjoyable revision break (or some procrastination), and no matter what type of student you are, good luck with those exams!
