Are we ready?

This weekend has to be very busy for most students at KTH as we prepare for examinations before Christmas. Due to this, I have spent the major part of this week studying. So, today is not any different as I woke up this morning to meet up with other students from my programme and what a reading marathon did we have!

In my opinion, one of the advantages of reading with groups is motivation. You might think, “but the examinations are enough motivation”;  there is a twist in this: when reading with people, there is a tendency to focus and read longer. For example, when reading in the library, there’s this sense of “we are many trying to achieve similar goals in this space” This gets better when the group of people you are with are trying to achieve the same goal. In this case, the same examination.The icing on the cake is that you can easily ask for help if you get stuck. Remember my post on asking questions?

One thing I love about my method of preparation today is the amalgamation of different study techniques. So, we all started reading individually with no one interception from anyone. Then, after the lunch break, we decided to work together for a bit and solve questions. (Good way to exchange knowledge and share ideas). After doing this for a while, we all went back to reading separately but this time, with the mindset that we are all free to answer questions from anyone who needs help. Then, we continued at this tempo till we called it a day!

You would not be wrong if you conclude that this is the same routine for tomorrow. We would study hard and get ready to smile when the results are out with the saying “WE DID IT”

To everyone preparing for exams, this post is a reassurance that there are other students studying as hard as you right now. With this, I wish everyone, GOODLUCK!
