Firstly, well done on getting through your 1st of what shall be hopefully many, seismesters here at NUIG.
However this sense of achievement is probly being drowned out by the sense of "Oh dear god, these exams." However all is not lost, like the Leaving Cert, these exams seems unachieveable and vastly scarey, when in fact they are not.
I thought I'd give you a few hints and tips that helped me last year.
1) Check your Continuous Assestment grade, this can be extremely calming realising that you've got a fair chunk of the marks already in the bag, suddenly the exam isn't so daunting!
