As a full-time student are exams the only thing you worry about?

When I was a full-time student I never did really study much. I only study what is required during the exams. But then something caught me up to make me realise that the effort I put in studying for exams affects my grade. Usually I no worries for anything except for pocket money. But exams had become another worry of mine as the grades that I want to get do not seem to appear. So as full-time student are exams your only worry?

Well, as a student exams are not the only thing I am worried about. I am the topper of my institute which brings several more pressures and expectations from me. I am worried about getting not only good number in exams but retaining my toppers position too. Moreover, there are assignments that we receive which takes a lot of hard work to get complete. So overall, I am worried about everything related to studies as a student.

I worry about a lot of things as a full-time graduate student. I am a wife and a student so I also worry about money, my husband, how to pay the bills, can we afford things and whether I will find work once I graduate college. I do study for my courses, read my books and also write papers. Now with the holidays upon us I am working on my crafts so I can start selling my items online. I am always worried about my grades as well. I want to get the best grades possible.

I'm a full time student but for the course I am doing it wouldn't be possible for me to only work hard in the exam period.This is because my course has only a few exams and is mainly based on assignments that I have to work on throughout the year. This is good as I don't have the stress of my entire grade resting on a few exams.I'm not that good at exams and I find them really stressful. Though it does mean I have to work hard throughout the year as almost everything I'm working on will count towards my final grade.It also means I have to make sure I don't miss anything.

Not really. I'm not so much of a vocal person so I don't recite in class, that's why I see to it that I do well in exams so that I could get my desired grade. Sometimes I worry that I won't be able to make it, but in the end it's a matter of what I've acquired in the learning process and how much I've learned in the subjects I've taken. What's more important is the application of all those in the career we've chosen, and also in real life. So for me I won't worry too much with exams.

Aside from exam, I'm also worrying about our thesis in school. :)

It depends, but usually I don't worry about my exams. To be honest, i hate reviewing my notes as well as writing down what the professor is saying. I'm much better at application part, in my case, since I'm studying computer science, I prefer making software, projects, case study, than writing and reviewing my notes. Even I fail at exam I still believe I can pass that subject since I will still do my best and gonna review if it's really necessary.

I was constantly plagues by exams and studying. To the extent that my friends made me their project to intrude some social life in me. This was in college. I guess I was preoccupied with grades because I knew I am good at them and I also want some identifying fact or with it. I kinda learned to 'live a life' when I was in college but in high school I the only thins that I frequent is the school and my house. Allowance I guess, is another matter, sine I was encourage to save and put the money for future use. And I think in a sense I also worry about our home life. Not everyday but it sometimes makes you think once in a while.

To be honest, no. As a full time student, exams is just one of the many things that I worry. Or maybe worry is not the appropriate word. Maybe the right word is enjoy. As a student, exams is just one of the many things that I enjoy while studying. Because aside from studying, I also serve in a Catholic community and I also write articles

I have cleared graduation and can't afford for further studies despite my willingness.My father is no more and now I have to shoulder all the responsibility of my family that consists of as many as seven members.Therefore I lack time also.But years ago when I was a student,exams or grades were not among my worries.In fact,I had made it a point to start studying seriously from the very first day of each session.The only worry that I had then was maintaining my image as a good student.And I am happy that both my teachers and my parents had always have a positive opinion about me.

Back in college, my primary concern was my grades. Exams are just part of it, although it's a big part :) There were also projects and papers that had to be submitted, including my thesis. But you're right about one thing, which all students should realize, and that is the effort that we put in studying would be the grades we usually would get. We study hard, we get good grades
