Gearing up for Exams

Nobody really wants to be reminded about exams yet. We’d rather close our eyes, stick our fingers in our ears and yell. But they’re coming, and there’s nothing we can do about it. The good news, though, is that you’re not alone. There are a bunch of services available to you leading up to exams that can help.
The PASS program has been running all semester, but there’s still time to rock up to a few final sessions to cement the content from the last few weeks. Better yet, though, is that PASS will be running special classes during the Wednesday of SWOTVAC. During that day, you’ll be able to find PASS classes to help prepare you for exams and build your study skills.
You can find more info at the PASS website.
The ASK service is there to help with all your academic enquiries. They can actually sit down with you and talk about note-taking, referencing, study or Game of Thrones. Okay, so not everyone on the ASK desk will be up to date with Game of Thrones, but they will be able to help with everything else.
You can visit the ASK desk at the top floor of the Albert Coates Complex (U building) between 10 – 2, Monday – Thursday. Take advantage of it and work on those study skills before Exams hit.
Here’s a message from our friendly pals at yourtutor:
It’s all well and good to know that you should be ‘studying’ – but what does that actually mean? How do you study? There isn’t a class for that! Fortunately, we’ve provided a handy guide below that outlines some top tips from A++ students and yourtutor.

Don’t forget that if you get stuck on a foundation knowledge question, you have access to a free expert tutor online who can help you work it out. Log in via Moodle and click on ‘yourtutor’, it’s as simple as that.

If ‘study’ and ‘library’ don’t go together as well as bacon and eggs then…you’re probably a vegetarian. But that doesn’t change the fact that the library has a wealth of facilities to help you out with the oncoming exams. Whether it’s a quiet study area, the tomes of knowledge (otherwise known as ‘books’) or the helpful librarians you’re after, all of them can be found here.
For more information on what the library offers and when they’re open, head to the library website here.
Also, if you want to really flesh out those study skills, you can get a head start for next semester by enrolling in FedReady just before semester 2 starts. Click here to take a look!
