Last summer I quit my job of twelve years so I could go to University. Despite my long absence from school I feel like I am doing alright so far and the only real difficulty I find comes from timed exams. You see, I have kept up with my studying so the knowledge part of the equation is not much of an issue, what is an issue is the fact that I am slow as fuck at putting words on paper.
So how do you get faster at writing and how do you approach exams where the only real test is whether you have to write six 300-500 word essays in under three hours? Is this style of exam even an issue for most people? Or how about strategies for the exam itself? On my mid-term exam (four essays in two hours), I wrote one awesome essay, one middling essay, one rushed essay, and skipped one. This approach did not yield great results so I was planning on just writing four middling essays and not worrying about the quality, as long as I get all of them finished this time. Is this a decent approach to take if I am running out of time?
Right now, I am just writing as much as possible while giving myself time limits, yet I still feel like I have not progressed at all when it comes to speed writing. Hell, this forum post has taken me around thirty minutes to write.
