how much time is left for you?
Sometimes we also have to do an assignment or a report in the 8 weeks before an exam. Luckily we always work on them with a group of 4-5 people. I can't imagine how hard it would be to do them on my own
After this schoolyear (it finishes somewhere around june-july, don't know exactly) I have to do 2 more years on the same school. But if I want to become a lawyer I have to go to university for 2 more years to study law and after that I have to do 3 years of 'lawyer school'. Again, I don't know the right word for it, but it's more like a 3 year internship. Just working with a lawyer that is kind of a mentor to you.
