My Fall 2014 Final Exams

Leave a comment

Hello all. I only have three final exams this semester, so it’s not all exciting. But they are all going to happen really soon. I have Physical Chemistry tomorrow, Process Control on Saturday, and Polymer Science on Monday. So basically that’s three exams in four days, which is not bad. Some might argue that it’s too compact of a schedule, and others may say that it’s better to get everything over with quickly. To me I think it’s pretty fair. At least I don’t have to stay here till the last day of finals. One of my friends had three exams in two days, and that’s what I would call too much to handle.

So far I’ve been spending most of my time studying for PChem because that’s the first one coming up. Although I’m going to do a bit of Controls tonight just to balance it out. The thing is that these two exams are almost back to back. PChem is tomorrow from 4-7pm, and Controls is Saturday from 8-11am. My mind would be decently fried coming out of the PChem exam. And historically I would need a bit of a break after the exam before I start studying more for Controls. I heard that study breaks are good for you. There’s also a fair chance of me pulling an almost-all-nighter the night before Controls exam. The reason that it’s an almost-all-nighter is that I just pulled a 30-hour-all nighter on Monday to complete my design project, and it didn’t feel all that great afterwards. So you can say that I’m somewhat prepared and warmed up for my next all nighter. But I would try not to do so again since study suggests that you need some sleep before.

Aside from that I have a Biotech take home exam that I have already finished. I appreciate the way how my exam is all going to come down quickly within the next 4 days. Every time I step into the library I get a flashback. Let’s keep it up comrades. Lastly, I want to share with you this amazing view of sunrise from the Mountaintop tower.
