Reviewing How You Went
Now is the time to relax.
- Go and have a coffee or a drink with your friends. Debrief over the exam by all means, but try not to listen too much to what your friends thought were the correct answers. This could induce post exam depression!
- If you are really concerned, go home and look at your textbooks or notes. Then, forget all about it. You need to forget, in order to focus on your next exam.
- When the results are back, check them to see if the result accords with your own idea of what you thought you might get. If there is a huge discrepancy, for example by a couple of grades (not marks), or you unexpectedly failed, you might consider applying for a remark (see the link to University policies at the end of this module to find out your entitlement).
- It is not the end of the world if you fail an exam at university. Instead, use it as a learning experience. Look back over this module to see where you might have gone wrong.
- Take advantage of any formal learning opportunities about exams offered by the Learning Support Program. Make sure you attend these well before your next exam period.
