Banging my drum [Jul. 22nd, 2008|11:46 am]
Miss M
Things of note today - I've passed the first Year Law Exams tantalisingly close to a Distinction which we all know is 70. I got 69. However I have 4 more subjects next year plus a Dissertation and the good thing is I think it wasn't a matter of luck but of cracking the technique of doing well in these exams. From the first exam which I got 64 in what I believed to be my best subject to an incremental 76 for Contract Law which I believed was my worst subject, something must have changed along the way and it wasn't knowledge but technique and a very good essay as well. So, the moral is, exam technique can be learnt to produce results! Well done me, pat on the back. :)

Congratulations, that's really great.

Exams are at least 70% about technique; it still completely baffles me how little time they spend teaching it in Oxford degrees, especially considering the courses are so exam-dependent.

Well done! Exam technique is the only thing I've ever been good at. I wish you could use it in actual life.
