Exam is over! – What’s next?

Exam is over! – What’s next?

As this entry is written, almost all OUM Learners have finished their exam. What’s next? Below are some things that you can do after exam:

  1. Celebrate – first and foremost, celebrate it. Celebrate here is not necessarily expensive celebratory meals, a 5-star vacation, etc. As long as you do different things and maybe with your kids, colleague, classmate, it is a celebration. I can remember that I take  RM2.50 Magnum ice cream with my classmate after our 2nd semester’s final exam.
  2. Sleep – some of us may just come home and jump into bed and catch up the lost sleep. But this is quite difficult to OUM Leaners whom are adult learners. Kids will be always the reason.
  3. Return all library books – make sure you have retuned all the books. Otherwise you will face a problem when you want to borrow other books next semester. As a Librarian in this University, I suggest you to check your library account at  the Library portal under ‘My Library Card’ link.library card
  4.  Read novel & leisure books – why not? There’s many English and Malay novels in the Library. If you have interest on photography, you can borrow books and photography at call no TR. Just ask the Librarians location of books on photography.
  5. Your work – you may put aside some of your works in the office during the exam period. ” I’ll do this and this after exam”. So don’t forget to finish it.
  6. Next semester courses – you can always prepare for next semester. You can check almost all modules  in MyVLE.

That’s all from now. Sure many more things can be done. Eager to know about it from all of you.
