That time of year has rolled around again… That’s right, exams are upon us! Looks like the weather is rather less glorious than it was this time last year, which is probably a plus – there’s nothing worse than being stuck inside revising when the sun is out and everyone else is lounging around on the grass, right?

Now, we could write a post full of useful tips about how to do well at exams, but as it turns out our friends over in the Skills Team have beaten us to it, and have already posted a whole series of blogs. They’re also much more knowledgeable than us about these kinds of things, so rather than trying to reinvent the wheel we’re going to point you in their directions…

Their week of posts kicked off with some great information on how to plan your revision – even if it is at the last minute. It’s really important to make the most of your time, so this is a great place to start.

Blog number two is all about using past papers in your revision, which can be a great strategy both for revision and learning, and the third post talks about the differences between writing for exams and writing for coursework or other assessments. Blog four is all about active revision, and how it’s important to really understand what you’re revising rather than just memorising it and the fifth (and as far as we know final) post is a list of 14 super helpful tips on how to do the very best you can in your exams.

The Skills Team update their blog every single week with wonderfully bite-sized nuggets of information to help you through your academic journey, and we can’t recommend it enough!
