Oh FINALLY! I've finished my second year at university! (Well, actually, after I've printed off this essay and handed it in, THEN I will have finished laugh.gif )
It's such a relief! I have been working so hard! Since easter, I have had at least 4 essay, a presentation and a dissertation proposal to hand in, I have been doing uni work ALL the time!
Do you know what's annoying? We're supposed to have a job AND do all this extra reading AS WELL as all these assignments! If I did have a job for all this, I don't think I would have gotten all those essays done, there just isn't enough time. i have been rushed off my feet for so long, I can't remember when I used to have time to just sit about watching TV, doing what I wanted of a day!
Any one else at uni know what I'm talking about? Anyone else been at uni and have any time management tips for this soon-to-be third year?

Oh but it does feel good to have all my lectures, exams and essays done. i can relax at last *cries with joy*

Finished my degree, I beat you, hahahahaha ha hahaha ha ha ha.

I always remember thinking at the end of the first and second year, after a mad rush (an invariably a few missed nights of sleep) that I would never ever do it like that again and I would do work as soon as it came in, it never happened, but literally everyone I know worked like that so I wasn't being different.
That said, lecturers seem to want to torture students...or are incompetant...or don't communicate with each other...or just don't give a flying fu....monkies about us. For the first (and longest) term of my third year, I had two assignments, that's right a mere two assignments to hand in before christmas, after christmas, and before the final hand-in date on the 28th April, there was something like 15 going on for 20. I wish I had taken my own advice and done things as soon as they had come in, but with practical assignments like the ones I had, you're somewhat limited to the facilities available to you (like the recording studios...which were booked up by lecturers of the first and second years for all of Janurary, Febuary and half of March on the day before everyone else came back from Christmas (I hear harsh words were exchanged on our behalf, there ARE usually some nice lecturers who do give a damn).

I'm afraid I don't have any advice at all. I'm currently finishing up my 4th year (lucky people with your 3 year degrees dry.gif ), and I never learned to manage my time properly. I always end up in a rush to finish everything at the last second before it's due. And I'm actually a very organized person. I just seem to have this talent for procrastinating with schoolwork.

I'm currently supposed to be writing an essay. But instead here I am on the forums!

Oh well. Next week at this time I will be just a few hours away from being finished with undergrad stuff FOREVER. I'm pretty dang excited.

For what it's worth, I really AM going to try and get things done when I'm given them! I hate this mad rush right at the end, it destroys my will to live!
Dissertation time for me though. I', -intending- to get lots done over summer, but I'll probably get an abismal amount of work done, then panic at Christmas, lol.

Oii.

I found 4th year a very long hard slog but I finished and was duly bonked on the head with a morterbord (sp?) and muttered at in Latin. smile.gif
I'm very glad I went - even if I never went into a field in which I use my degree. I find I keep getting seduced by higher education and keep wandering back to learn more stuff. The latest little piece of paper (certificate) got me my current job.
Time management? I had one lecturer propose the laughable proposition that one study 1 hour outside class for every 1 hour within class. I didn't achieve this.
I personally felt a little sorry for the engineering students with their 6 classes per semester with labs madness. No wonder they went a little odd. The honourable pie-in-your-face-for-charity psuedomonks of the order of pi, the loonies that pushed a car around the quad for about 2 days straight, those who scaled the astronomy building so the dome had a smiley face, and those most likely to be up to something dodgy with a potato and length of tubing. All engineering students.
