Hey everybody,

Exams are stress, pure hot, nasty stress! But it may not be so. This is for students who, shall we say, have not been regulars in college during semester 1 and especially if you have a lot of catching up to do. I say empatically, start now. If you have not been going into lectures, start now, i cannot STRESS how much exam info and hint-hints are given in these final weeks of lectures. Its never too late to start studing for modules, trust me, even if you have been taking it easy the last few weeks...or months.

Study week is fast approaching and you may be asking yourself where semester one has gone, don’t worry we all are. These last two weeks of term can be draining and hard but it can be done. The most important bit of advice a lecturer gave me in first was to be organised with your notes and take one day at a time especially when it comes to the exams. So here are a few tips on getting assignments finished and really getting down to study.

A good night sleep is essential – that doesn’t mean staying in bed all day!

Try and eat healthy – I struggle with this at times when it comes to being busy

Free food and banter? That's exactly what to expect from tomorrow! Of course you can't forget the music,,, so come to the college bar tomorrow night (18th November) between 8pm to 10pm. Whether you're on a study break, just want to chill or want to meet your mentors to catch up with any queries you have, take the time to swing by.

We all know the pressure exams can put on us and ensuring you take time for yourself is essential. This week is Mental Health week, and I think this week you should be aware of how well you mind your mental state and prepare yourself for the exam period to come.

No matter what happens this month, at least you're not a turkey!

Hi guys,
Week 11 is upon us, where the hell is the semester disappearing to! I trust you are all knee deep in essays by now and that you are all now spending at least as much time in the library as you are in Karma! I know a lot of you may be very stressed about the upcoming exams, I remember how stress I was myself back in first year but as long as you are keeping on top of your assignments and starting to go through your notes you'll be fine.

Exams are only a few weeks and as is usual we all start to stress a little, even those of use who have been through the exam system before.

Some of the other blogs give great advice as to how to best prepare for studying like eating right, getting plenty of zzzz's and studying in groups.

However, some of the best advice I got off my mentor last year was to do with preparation. As the man himself, Roy Keane said, "Fail to prepare, prepare to fail". 

What he meant by this was the importance of having your work done and feeling confident of yourself walking into the exam hall.
