How to prepare for exams in January…

In General

So you’ve made it through the first semester and now it boils down to the dreaded January exams. Obviously we know there’s no way to make the revision super fun, but we do have a few tips to help you prepare and (hopefully) feel less stressed!

Start Early

This sort of goes without saying, but start your revision early. Check the dates for each of your exams and prioritise accordingly way in advance. Use all the free time you can during the Christmas break, but of course, do spend time stuffing yourselves with turkey and pudding!

Coping with family at Christmas

In General

Going home for Christmas is a joy for many, but it can also bring quite a few problems with it; from the temporary loss of independence to having to live by the rules of the house, rather than your own.
