You might love them or loathe them, but there is no avoiding exams and assessments at uni. Before you start scrolling again, here are our simple tips for revision and study to keep you focused.  

When you’ve got tons of revision and work to do, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and end spending way too much time wandering around the Marketplace or doing the opposite and ending up never seeing your flatmates for days at a time because you’re chained to your desk!  

We’re here to give you some helpful resources so that you can plan your revision and breaks or get some support if things haven’t gone to plan.  

Most importantly, although it can feel all consuming, your exam performance and your grades do not define you. If you are struggling, please do reach out for help.

I Need Support

Stay hydrated, keep talking to friends and family, and we wish you the best of luck in your assessments. You’ve got this!

What's On

We’ve got revision sessions if you need a push to sit down and crack on, you can also find some free snacks providing a welcome study break in DH1, as well as some goody bags too.
