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

Welcome to 2017!

Welcome back to the Library – we hope you had a wonderful Christmas break.

We know lots of you have exams in January but we’re here to help as much as we can – here’s a reminder of everything that is available – from silent study space to motivational playlists.

If you feel you’ve done enough revising and want to focus on a new resolution or find new things to do have a look at our Resolutions Pinterest Board.

And if you were lucky enough to receive a shiny new laptop or mobile don’t forget to connect it to Eduroam as soon as you’re back on campus and download Office 365.
