I'm on track, comfortable with my work and feel good about the year
I'm working hard, but can't seem to get to feeling ready for the exams
I generally do questions closer to the exam, because I need to finish my theory / revision first
I generally 'check' the memo if I'm doing a question I'm not sure of, because I don't want to waste time doing the wrong thing
I feel ok about failing questions when I study because I realise where I'm going wrong and realign my work
I don't want to ask for help unless I've spent a lot of time figuring it out myself

  That's me!!! ALL. THE. TIME! Quite a lot. More so in recent levels of studies Quite a lot... for most of my school and studies A little No, I've never felt this way N/A
"I need to know my theory very well, so I remember all the details and calculations"
"I'm excited to learn new topics and work on them"
"There's WAY too much work in the syllabus to be able to work through, and do questions on"
"I wish I could still cram for my exams like I used to be able to!"
"Do these lecturers / examiners WANT us to fail!?"
"I honestly don't like new topics because I'm so uncomfortable with everything already"
"Questions in the test were unfair because there were no questions like that in our material"
"I like to work with topics where I know the format / formula and can use it in similar questions"
"I like to work with topics where the knowledge isn't 'formatted / rules-based', and it works differently in every question"
"I like communication-type questions"
"I like calculation / format-based questions"

"I spend more time on theory / revision during the year than on questions"
"I'm not actually sure what 'application' means! Lecturers are always on about it... but what does this MEAN for me?!"
"I do questions so that I have a bigger database of answers. In exams, I can use these to answer questions"
"I used to do well at school and earlier levels, I feel like something's gone wrong!"
"I should be able to get stuff right pretty quickly after going to class and learning it."
"Once I'm qualified, I'll know the answer to things, and I won't feel so stupid all the time!"
