Posted on 23 Awst 2018 by Tamzin

When I started in first year I was a pretty inexperienced cook, there was lots of boiling potatoes and eating junk.

Exam venues

Posted on 26 Mai 2018 by Tamzin

Exam venues make me more stressed than some of my actual exams. Not just the layout and echo of a crowded hall, but the fear of forgetting your student card, sitting in the wrong seat, being late to the exam or filling out the form incorrectly. To top it all off the exam venues are

I have to do an assessed presentation this month for one of my modules, this prospect frightens me as I know it does many others. Speaking in front of groups has never come naturally to me, I consider myself quite an eloquent speaker but stumble over the simplest of words when in front of people
