Revision Planning

Sadly, it’s that time of year again. The Christmas Trees might be up and the decorations are all over the university but for students this isn’t the best time of year. Exams are just around the corner and with uni finishing in about 2 weeks, now is the time that panic sets in. There are only 2 weeks left to ask lecturers questions and get knowledge about approaching revision and exams.

However, there is no need to panic. Come see us at 301 for exam help.

Exam revision planning is the key to getting all of that information stored in your brain ready for the exam but if you don’t plan properly it can be stressful. You know that feeling when you get to the IC to revise a few days before your exam and there are no computers free but someone is sat in front of one with a laptop? Or if you remembered your laptop but there is nowhere to sit? Planning well may mean you don’t have to get to the IC at 8am to find a seat because your revision will already be done. We have several workshops running before the end of term for revision planning.

One thing I hate personally about essay based exams is that you can have all the knowledge in the world on that subject area but you still might not get full marks. A lot of focus is put on answering the question, rather than stating all the information you know, and the way you approach the question. Still no need to panic if, like me, you struggle to do this. We have a workshop for exam technique when doing essays too.

And if you are reading this but have multiple choice based exams, we have an essay technique workshop for you too.

If you want help, sign up to one of our workshops or if you can’t attend at those times why not book a 1:1 with one of our tutors? You can book online by following the link: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/ssid/301

Maybe now we can all relax and enjoy the Christmas decorations while they are up.Christmas Tree
