Exam success

There is lots of help available from the Library and University to support you during your exams:

  • because we’re open 24/7 you can revise at whatever time of day suits you best
  • if you need silence to revise we can help with that too – there are silent study areas in each Library
  • if you need a PC to work on remember you can use the IT Labs if there isn’t a class in progress (see the timetables outside the rooms) or borrow one of the self-service laptops
  • we have lots of books on exam techniques (see our display on the ground floor of the Library)
  • have a look at our Exam Success Wake for advice and links to help you with your revision
  • you can request a tutorial to help you revise and prepare for exams and there are also resources on exam preparation and revision and time management on the Skills for Learning website

But please:

  • find out where your exam takes place (and what time!) before the day so that you know where you are going – there is information on the Student Hub pages, plus advice on what to do if you are ill and what you need with you for the exam
  • make sure you take regular breaks – water coolers in each Library can help you keep hydrated
  • look after your wellbeing – see our Pinterest Board for ideas or listen to our relaxing music playlist plus a motivational list too for you to listen to depending on your mood!
  • don’t chat when others are working in silence
  • don’t use the PCs for social networking when others need to work
  • and don’t “save” study spaces by leaving your belongings on them

Good luck! And remember to Contact Us if you need any help
