Did the Contracts exam today. It went pretty well. I think it’s pretty hard to get a High Distinction grade in this class, but that’s what I’m hoping for with what I wrote… I guess it’ll depend on what others wrote and how well they did it. That’s what I’m aiming for anyway. I expect at least a distinction grade for what I wrote down though.
That means that Foundations of Law and Contracts are both done. It wasn’t until I got home from the exam that I realized how tired I was. [CM] had a bit of a headache, so we both went to bed just to lie down and rest a bit, and before I knew it, I was unconscious– passed out for a couple of hours I think. I guess the past few days, things have been pretty non-stop in terms of studying.
It paid off though. I was, to be honest, pretty worried that I’d totally screw up on this exam, because I’ve always hated exams in the past. There’s also the fact that I haven’t written any exams in about 6 years or so, so I’m out of practice to that kind of stress… but all the preparations that I did made it worth it. I did 3 practice exams over the past week, I went through all of the notes for the semester– I remember the voice of Mrs. Hunter, the director of my high school band, very clearly telling us “the concert should seem easy compared to the practice you should be doing.”
It’s funny how little bits of wisdom stick I guess. Another bit was from my Contracts instructor– “You can read other peoples notes, yes, you can read summaries, but unless you try and fail at reading them yourself first you’re never really going to understand anything useful.”
Well, I feel much better now that I’ve done and written the contracts exam, and I feel like I did pretty well. I’ve got one assignment, one take home exam, and two more in-person exams left though. Just need to keep it up.
