The Low-Down (The 4-1-1)

I guess you’re here to get the scoop on what’s happening right about now at university as there are only a couple months left for us uni students to finish the academic year.  Well as you can expect there is more work to complete and also exams that are drawing nearer therefore, the revision period has started.

Now, let’s get on to talk of the topic that brought you here, “The Low-Down (The 4-1-1)”.  Just recently, the Drill Hall library in Medway, Kent has become a 24 hour library for all students.  That is such great news for us students down here.  We now have the same privilege as the Greenwich campus students to study till the early hours of the morning NON-STOP!

It is good because when you can’t sleep, you know you can always pop off to the library to get some work or revision done if you prefer to do work at the library instead of staying at home.  Also the advantages of have the 24 hour library are, you can go home, shower, eat, take a nap then go back to the library at any time you want to do some more work or revision in a nice, calm and peaceful environment/atmosphere.



 Believe me, the late/early hours of the morning at the library are good because you have time to yourself and hardly anyone there to distract you.  There is also an extension to the Silent Zone for students that like to do work in silence with no distractions around.  I personally prefer the silent zone because there are no people having OTT (Over the Top) conversations and causing a commotion.  I feel free to do my independent studies in peace.

Talking of the library, I should be heading there now to continue with my studies!

I’m off girls and boys, see you perhaps in the library revising hard for the upcoming exams.

Take care when coming to and from the library. Watch this space!

The Final Presentation

So as everything is drawing to an end at university, there are only a few things left to just before the final exams.  They are to submit the assignments and projects, and last but not least present the outcome from the assignments and projects produced. 

There has been quite a few presentations and demonstrations taken place in this year.  Already I have had at least four including my last uni group demonstration/ presentation that took place last week on April Fool’s Day which did not go down so well.  It was a nightmare because of one member of the team destroying the presentation, but “what can I say?”    

The group has now learnt never to be in contact with one person from the group.  We all thought it must have been an April Fool’s joke playing on all of us for the whole presentation to end up being a disaster.  It had been a learning experience and I am so glad I will not have to work with that one person again.  It so happened that the groups were chosen for us therefore it was against my will to work with the members of the group that I did.  If I had my way, I would have not worked with that one person that ruined everything for all of us.

Anyway, the final presentation for Year 3 student like myself is for the Final Year Project (FYP) that is coming up very soon.  This will officially be the last presentation I will have to do in this university ever again.  It is a poster presentation allowing us to talk about our projects that we did individually. 


I only hope that everyone has a good presentation.
