REVISING FOR SUMMER EXAMS

The fast approaching of summer exams only spells out one thing. SCHOOL’S OUT and hello summer! Right? Well no, not exactly.

Although it’s a stressful time and exams soon come around, they mark the beginning of the fabulous summer holidays.  Finally, after three years of university, I can say that I see success in sight. I am going to share my top tips with you for getting through the summer exam season in one piece, with your sanity still intact.
