On the 18 Jun 04 I will sit my final exam for my external nursing degree (Charles Darwin Uni Australia. I have finished all of my assignments so it is now time to study. I am finding my nerves are getting in the road of my study at this point. I used to look forward to the exams as it was a good change from doing assignments, but this has now changed. I sat 2 exams (last year) which I studied my butt off for but did no good on. My nerves destroyed my confidence and I am terrified this will happen again. With those exams, there were 2 assignments in each unit plus an exam which boosted my marks so I could pass the 2 subjects (a&p & medsurg2) though this left me feeling deflated as I put alot of time into the study and it did not pay off. I struggled with a&p 1 & 2 as there was so much to remember and again with med surg. This subject I am doing now only had one assignment weighing 50% and the exam weighs 50%. The problem is I only got a pass + (have no idea what %) that is which now means I need to do extemely well in this health assessment exam. If anyone knows of any online practice exams or good memory tactics please send them my way. If I pass this exam I can go onto my final prac of 14 weeks then will become registered! I would also like to say thankyou to those who have helped me thru this last semester, I am so lucky to have had your valuable input and to have found this site. Thankyou
and wish me luck!
