Time for exam preparation!

study with laptopWe’re now approaching Week 11 of semester and if you haven’t yet started your exam preparation, here are some tips to get you cracking!

  • Gather information about your exams. Keep this information within reach such as in a calendar on your phone. What are the dates and times? Which campus and rooms? What are you allowed to bring into the exam room?
  • Block out time in your schedule for exam preparation to avoid last minute panics.
  • Gather and organise your study notes. Check your unit outlines, lecture topics and unit objectives for the main topics. Organise your notes into main topics and sub-topics. Summarise.
  • Go to last lectures for any exam hints!
  • Study actively – re-write main points in your own words; mind map key concepts; do revision questions from your textbook or go over tutorial exercises.
  • Turn off social media notifications during exam study time. You can check them in your breaks.
