Revision – Five Steps to Success
Give yourself time to study
You’ve probably heard this one a million times but we understand that everyone will need a different amount of time. Whilst some will need two weeks, others might just need a day! Whatever your needs, try and plan it so that you can be sure you have time to cover the topics you need and to ask your lecturers any questions!
So a student budget is tight, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t eat well. If you are tight for time, remember that the SUSU café and the Bridge provide food all day long – Check out what’s available here: https://www.susu.org/whats-on-and-where/eat-drink-shop/2012/
Don’t forget that there are two microwaves in Building 42 for your use too!
Exercise a little
This doesn’t mean that you have to go to the gym for hours. Taking a twenty minute break from your studies and going for a quick walk around campus is a great way to clear your mind and get your body moving.
Let’s imagine you didn’t follow step 1 and give yourself enough time. Don’t panic! Just concentrate on what the most necessary information is for you to retain and try your best. Don’t forget steps 2 and 3!
Finally, be positive! Exams can be daunting but by keeping a positive attitude, the exams period will hopefully be over in a flash! However if you do feel overwhelmed by the pressures, why not ring Nightline on 02390595236 (Halls – 25236) or visit the Advice Centre in building 42?
