Something, something, EXAMS!

I’m revising for an exam which I have tomorrow at the moment but, if I leave it another day, this blog won’t have been updated in 2 days and I would prefer to not have that happen.

I saw a quote the other day that said “students cheat because society values grades more than learning,” and there’s something about that which rings true to me. I’m at university because society values a person with a degree more highly than someone without, despite the fact that I am not going to be any more capable of doing the jobs generally associated with a maths degree at the end of this (accountant, banker or programming) There’s a miserable irony there which I try not to think about.
