Does This Make Sense?

Those who do well in studies are those who manage to force themselves into doing something they dislike- studying.

And frankly, that is a success factor in the working life- being able to excel in something you despise.

Showing your future employer you did well in your studies shows how much effort u are able to put into something you don't enjoy. They're not stupid, they know you aren't that enthusiastic about the job u are applying for, contrary to what your resume says.

But if you managed to make it through 3 years of university with flying colours, it says a lot about your potential to dedicate 30 years to the company.

For those who actually like studying... please sell me some of your magic potion

Heh, I guess it's a bit too late for checking out the past year papers now, right?

But if you're free, then send 'em over to my email. I'll go check them out and see if they're useful...

In any case, thanks! And good luck!

Supplementals, yeah man... but even if u are doing a degree u like or a major u like, there would surely be a subject or two or three that u hate. I compromise quite a lot... but not as much as i want to. And i never fail to grumble while i'm at it!

Ps. u da one who deleted comment? =P

Melanie okieeee. Will update d links after exams... Thanks 4 wishing me luck!

Charlotte, thats the thing about law! I love it too but i can never score! Kinda regret not taking up a biz law major...

Do well in sleeping

Definition of exams. You study for a few months or less than a year and than you spit it all out in a couple of hours. Can't get a better definition for it.

Adam dun have to work 4 accounting firm with an acct major. Our degree is quite general thanks to those compulsory 1st year subjects. And also easier 2 get PR =P

About the flat (as landlords call it), Carolyn earlier said that she has some friends who are interested in it before u, so wait n see la, we'll keep u updated.

Ty i definitely can graduate with 1st class honours if sleeping is my major.

Marcus u 4got one part, the most important part: forget everything after exiting the exam hall
