The Men in White Coats are on Standby

Ah, the familiar embrace of exam-induced insanity. I feel it envelop me now.

First exam is Saturday and I'm currently feeling quite confident about it, which of course worries me more than if I knew nothing.

Then I have two more weeks before Greek, which is good cos I do know nothing. We have sessions every Thursday to help us but all they really leave me with is a headache, mainly because the other people are so loud. I am thisclose to bashing Keren's head in with her own Bible. Seriously. The girl does not shut up. It doesn't matter if it isn't her turn, or if the question was directed at the teacher, or if the teacher is trying to explain something or if two people are having a conversation that has nothing to do with her, or if nobody is supposed to be talking anyway, she will still talk. Loudly.

But what does this matter since I still don't know if I'm graduating anyway. I'm hopeful since the only teacher that I know for sure is part of the strike has actually marked our coursework now. I read that the university is considering giving out unclassified degrees to students affected. That is in no way fair since a unclassified basically says "I wasn't good enough to even get a third". But again, I am hopeful since the exams are all still going ahead so it shouldn't be too difficult to mark them once the strike is resolved.

But for now my main concern is getting through the next few weeks without stabbing myself with those little wooden skewers. And not failing horribly.

The whole unclassified degree thing is what I'm most worried about. Your exams are starting late for a third year, huh? Guess it depends what course you're doing.

Yeah, hopefully the unclassifieds will just be temporary until the exams are marked.

And I agree, mine are starting late. I was really surprised about Anglo-Saxon England, it's a large class (around 50) and they're usually earlier in order to give the teacher a chance to mark all the papers. I knew Greek would be late cos there are only four of us.

You are smart and clever and wonderful and will take the exams by storm. I know you will do so so so well!

I hope you're right. Just over an hour to go till my first one and I'm feeling reasonable confident, along with quite nauseous.
