UG event series - Revision and exam strategies

This event will be in Zoom

This session explores a series of strategies for increasing the likelihood of success in exam taking. Building on the experience of 15 years advising students in exam preparation, the discussion examines the following elements: important working habits; topic selection; scheduling; knowledge recall methods; mock practice; and writing the essay script. Attention will also be devoted to variations in the exam model, including take-home papers and the use of computers. An emphasis is placed on ways to reduce stress and the importance of good preparation. There will be plenty of space to ask questions and engage with the themes of the seminar.
