also come on, stop acting like theoretical exams are anything to be worried about. especially not ones composed mostly of multiple choice questions. i mean honestly i spent less than an hour per subject revising for exams that our teachers absolutely insisted we should spend at least half a year on and i was totally fine. so much of doing well on multiple choice exams is just knowing how to rule out obviously nonsensical answers so you have better odds of guessing the right answer on questions you're not certain about and not getting hung up on questions you can't answer right away until you've dealt with everything you can answer right away.

practical exams sound a lot scarier.

though on the upside i found a job offer that looks suspiciously like a temporary holiday replacement of exactly the same job i had before?? and they called back within an hour or so of me writing an e-mail? it went on the answerphone, but obviously i'll call back right after i get back from taking care of the bureaucracy shit i have to take care of. i'd gladly take that job back even if it was just for half a year.
