Hints tips and a bit of cake and wine

There were a few that we're probably not allowed to repeat (!) but we thought we'd share some of them with you, alongside more information that you might find helpful:

"Ask your teachers for support" - but remember there is lots of help from staff right across the University if you are struggling, such as the Student Wellbeing Team who offer appointments and self-help guides.

"Plan" - sounds obvious but isn't always easy; you might find mindmapping a useful technique: MindView software is available on all the Library PCs. And remember to make sure you know where and when your exam is!

"Be kind to yourself" / "believe in yourself" - take a look at our Wellbeing Pinterest Board for ideas or pop along to one of the SU #stressless events.

"Prep" / "Remember to read da question" - lots of information and advice is available on the Skills for Learning exam prep pages.

"Reward yourself after a few steps" - Colleagues in the Food Courts have special offers on to help you get through exams - £1 cakes after 2pm!

"Rehydrate (with wine)" - can't offer the alcohol but there are water fountains in each Library.

"Take a break every ten minutes" - we have mindfulness colouring to stop you looking at your screens for a few minutes, but if you do take longer breaks remember to take your belongings with you.

"Early nights zzzzz" - we're open 24/7 but that doesn't mean you should be revising 24 hours, make sure you get lots of sleep whether you're a night owl or an early bird. But remember to set your alarm so you don't miss your exam!
