Five tips for exam success
7 January 2020
The semester one exam period has now begun. Read on to find out how the university can help you to get the best grades.
1. Find out your exam dates and draw up a study plan
Being organised is essential to preparing properly. Find your exam timetable here, and use it to draw up a study plan where you can evenly distribute your time.
2. Access Wellbeing support, if you need it
If you have any concerns about your wellbeing during exam time, we can help. You can get in touch with the Wellbeing team, or check out our self-help page. You may also find these tips on dealing with exam stress helpful.
3. Find a good space to revise
The Library is open 24/7 so you can revise whenever suits you. Silent study spaces are available at both campuses (first floor in Headingley Library and second and third floors in Sheila Silver Library).
Remember there are study spaces in some Halls of Residences and lots of social learning spaces around campus if you prefer a different study environment. Our study spaces web page gives more information. And you can use the IT Labs if there is no teaching in them - just check the timetables outside.
4. Stay active by trying a free fitness class
Staying active will keep your mind clear and focused. To help keep your mind and body in shape, all group fitness classes during the exams period are free. You can find a full schedule of classes here.
5. Fuel yourself with free fruit and water giveaways
The Students’ Union will be giving away fruit and water in both libraries throughout the month to help keep you focused and motivated when studying. Get your free bottle of water and piece of fruit on:
- 10:00 – 12:00 on Wednesday 8 January at the Headingley Campus Library
- 13:00 – 15:00 on Thursday 9 January at the Sheila Silver Library
- 10:00 – 12:00 on Tuesday 14 January at the Sheila Silver Library

Good luck with your exams!
