So far, in terms of time off, we’ve had one week off for China’s National Day, which was back at the start of October, and to be honest, that felt really soon after the start of term (we’d only been at uni for 3 weeks). Mid-term exams were mid-November, no break before, no break after; attend classes as usual outside of scheduled exam times.
When our mid-term exams finished, some classmates mentioned how usually, there’d always be some sort of break after the end of exams before studies continued again. Actually, I guess the break might be before exams (e.g. January exams, which take place after the Christmas break), or after (Summer exams, after which students are rewarded with a, usually longer, Summer break).
It didn’t bother me so much then, but now we’re having exams again, I’m really feeling like this end of term break has been a long time coming.
Having said that, we do have a long weekend right now, with Monday and Tuesday off uni! 🙂
Happy New Year, everyone!!
