I knew that going back to school in my forties would be difficult. However, I did not realise how complex it would be until my second day in Dublin. As I walked outside, I noticed that I could not tell the difference between the street and the sidewalk (or pavement, as the Irish say).

Universities with interesting exam superstitions

Submitted by grace.mccabe on Thu, 05/05/2022 - 10:10

Universities across the world have their own exam traditions and superstitions that come with the promise of exam success. 

Whether you believe them or not, it's interesting to see what kind of traditions have been passed down across generations of students on university campuses. 

However, it's important to note that you won't ace your exams simply by following these superstitions - nothing can replace hard work, preparation and a few good study sessions.
