Make the most of your LRCs and tips for exam success

With coursework and exams on your mind here’s some important information from your Library and Computing Services team about working in the LRCs, skills sessions and useful tips to help you succeed.


Tips for exam success
Going through past exam papers is a great way to revise. If past exam papers are available, you will find them:
EITHER from your module's Online Library or Teaching Resources
OR type your module name or code + “exam paper” in Library Search

Ebooks about exam revision can offer some very helpful (and calming!) guidance. Just type "study skills" exams into Library Search and select Library Catalogue.

Take a look at this StudyNet page for more Tips for exam success.

Revise and get support in the LRCs
Book yourself into a half hour LinkUP session where library experts will offer you help and tips for exam success, including tools to help with revision and practical ideas for effective study. 
  • College Lane LRC - Tuesday 30 April 12.00 – 12.30 LG1, Lower Ground floor
  • De Havilland LRC - Thursday 02 May 12.00 – 12.30 L218, Top floor

Find your space
Many of you will be studying in the LRCs, open 24/7 to suit whenever you want to work. Silent and quiet study areas, group study, cafe study…just choose what's best for you! It will be busy, so do please respect others #beconsiderate

Staff will be monitoring noise levels during this busy time – if you feel people around you are behaving inappropriately please talk to a member of LRC staff or talk to Security.

And do please remember to take frequent breaks!
