Finishing an exam when you still have more to do is such a confusing feeling. Part of me wants to run around in circles and celebrate and the other part thinks "meh, not another bloody exam after this one... just. can't. take. it. any. more."
On the plus side I am halfway through exams now, and all the way through my written exams. I'm so bad as gauging how I've done in exams. I should find out the result of this pretty soon though. Apparently before my OSCE in a fortnight.
It stuns me how the university administration get away with being so useless.
In most companies if you consistantly missed targets and deadlines people would be sacked. It just isn't acceptable. However at uni its the norm. Results are rarely out on time. Placements are never out on time, neither are allocations to special study components... which also always seem to get messed up somehow. Last term I was told I hadn't got any of my shortlisted topics and given a new list to pick from, which included my top 5 choices. Something clearly went wrong there.
If I thought everyone would do it, I would suggest that the whole year boycotted something to show them how unacceptable it is. How would they feel if we turned up at OSCEs 3 days late because we were pretty busy otherwise?
Any bets on when I'll actually get my results? Also taking bets for when placement details for next year are released. They were originally due weeks ago, then the deadline got moved to last Friday and they're still not out. Pfft.
