Last week is, and always has been, a very crucial week for many people. Of course, I am talking about the dreaded A-Level Results Day – where teenagers everywhere find out if they’ve achieved the grades needed to secure their university places.
Thankfully, a lot of people do. And for those who don’t, there is always the chance to go through clearing and find another course just as exciting.
It’s an exciting time for everyone, but also a nerve racking time. For parents, for friends, and for the soon to be first-year undergraduates themselves. [Read More]

This year is the year I want to be more organised. Having taken a gap year in between Sixth Form and University, I find it easy to fall behind with some of my Law reading and seminar work as I’m out of practice with meeting deadlines. Therefore, I’ve made sure to keep certain things on my desk at all times to – hopefully – boost my organisational skills and get everything together. [Read More]

As of June 10th, I will have officially completed my first year at university and will be returning home for the Summer, and there is nothing I find stranger than that. It seems somewhat concerning how quickly this entire year has gone; in fact it doesn’t seem like more than a few weeks ago I was driving to campus for the first time, full of nerves and anxiety. But yet here we are at the end of first year and campus living, and I don’t know how I feel about it. [Read More]

Exam anxiety is perfectly normal – everyone suffers from it. However, some suffer worse than others, and I believe I was one of those people.
My first exam in a year and half was at the end of last year, and I was a mess. Even though I had revised for weeks in advance, I could not seem to remember a thing about the Modern English Legal System at all. Even on the morning of the exam, I was reading things I had read multiple times before, still unable to recall them thirty seconds later, and this only filled me with even more anxiety and stress.

If there is one thing in the next two months I’m scared of, it’s exams.
This year I have four in the summer. Last Summer I had none. And the year before that I had six.
The point I’m trying to make is the two year gap in between is concerning me. Can taking a year out of education really have such an impact? I don’t know, but at the same time I don’t really want to find out. [Read More]

Today is officially my last day of university for five weeks, and what a term it has been.
In all honesty I can’t work out if I have loved it or hated it. There have been lots of ups and downs, highs and lows, and never ending struggles to actually get out of bed on time for seminars, exams and lectures. But being two thirds through my first year has put a lot of things into perspective about what I actually do and do not want to do with my future. [Read More]

I’m currently living in an accommodation called Tocil at the University of Warwick, and having been here for nearly two terms, I have realised there are a lot of pros and cons about accommodation.
I have tried to break what I’ve learnt down into three sections. [Read More]

2016 was one of the best years of my life! From January – October I was on a gap year before university, and during this time I finished my first manuscript, completed a law course, secured my first job, and even met the love of my life (my lovely, scruffy puppy) !
After this, I then completed my first term at the University of Warwick, as well as visited some wonderful places along the way.
Here are some of my favourite memories and events from 2016: [Read More]
