Are you ready for your exams?

Exams start this week (boo!) but there is still lots of help available from the Library.

Are you ready for your exams
  • because we're open 24/7 you can revise at whatever time of day suits you best
  • if you need silence to revise in we can help with that too - there are silent study areas in each Library
  • if you need a PC to access your notes remember you can use the IT Labs if there isn't a class in progress or borrow one of the self-service laptops
  • there are some past exam papers are available on MyBeckett. Click on the Modules tab and select “Exam papers online”
  • we have lots of books on exam techniques or you can have a look at our Pinterest Guide to Study Skills
  • you can request a tutorial to help you revise and prepare for exams and there are also resources on exam preparation and revision and time management on the Skills for Learning website
But please:
  • find out where your exam takes place (and what time!) before the day so that you know where you are going - there is information on the Student Hub pages plus advice on what to do if you are ill and what you need with you for the exam
  • make sure you take regular breaks - water coolers in each Library can help you keep hydrated.
  • look after your wellbeing - see our Pinterest Board for ideas or listen to our relaxing music playlist plus a motivational list too for you to listen to depending on your mood!
  • don't chat when others are working in silence
  • don't use the PCs for social networking when others need to work
  • and don't "save" study spaces by leaving your belongings on them
Good luck! And remember to Contact Us if you need any help.
