Well. I didn’t realise that would be the number of posts I was on tonight.
Oh man, boys. We have finally arrived at the stage where we summon the devil. Maybe he could cut me a deal and get me through this exam on Friday, eh? As it is, tomorrow is going to be a busy day of revising. And Thursday is going to be equally so.
Need to check if I have pens and stuff for this exam as well. Can’t forget that, that would kind of suck. Still, I believe I do have some pens with ink, so I shall have a check tomorrow for those.
Honestly I have not reached the stage of severe stress with this exam yet. That will probably come tomorrow night, when I realise that I have 1 more day to revise the whole of this module and get some wider research done on possible essay topics.
I have a pretty good idea of what questions are going to come up, honestly. The past 3 years have all had almost identical questions on the exam. That makes me feel a bit less bad about my situation. I plan to answer a problem question on Trespass to the Person and an essay question on Rylands v Fletcher. Those two topics have come up in every exam that I have looked at. They likely will again.
Still, I will brush up on the other two possible problem question topics. The past 3 exams have had a mixture of essay questions from the three main problem question sections, so if push comes to shove and Rylands v Fletcher doesn’t come up, it would be good to have at least something to write about.
As for the final possible essay question, which has come up every year, fuck that. That is all about the law around privacy and I can’t be bothered to revise that as well. We did one lecture on it at the very end of the semester and I can barely remember any of it.
So, tomorrow I need to sit down and revise all of the problem question areas, if I can. That means ploughing through 45 pages (as I expected) of notes, each with multiple cases to memorise on them. That is where I shine though, so I expect it to go well as long as I am not distracted.
Since I can’t really leave my room tomorrow, due to my father having someone from his work in the house to work with him, I shouldn’t be distracted at all. I will sit here, chill out and memorise all of the cases and important information. And when the end of the day comes I will rejoice in knowing that I have everything under control.
Or I’ll get half of it done and spend Thursday panic-revising the rest and as many articles as I can find. We can hope not.
