Exam results – Alex says ‘recharge, refresh, keep going’

Just had your first exams? Alex Holmes gives some great advice if you’re feeling nervous about results.

The main thing now is to give yourself a good break away from university life. I can imagine it has been a pretty full on semester at UC so it’s probably time to unwind and have some fun.

Results this semester come out on Friday 6 July. Remember everyone is in the same boat as you. Believe it or not, that bad mark you think you have may be on scale with the rest of your class, so they might scale it, or it isn’t as bad as you thought it would be.

Life at UC is very different to what school was, so don’t be worried if it doesn’t go exactly as you wanted it to. There are plenty of options to consider, a bad exam result isn’t the end and there are steps forward to continue doing what you are doing.

Remember to have an enjoyable and adventurous break and come back recharged and refreshed for another semester. Make the most of all that is on offer here, there is plenty to do and balance is key.
