Top 10 Study Tips


Start study preparation well in advance  – six weeks is optimal.


Download exam prep from Blackboard and gather anything you’ve printed out.


Check what type of exams you have: multiple choice, open book  or long answer.


Create your Personalised Study Plan with guidance from Student Advisors – email to make an appointment.


Prioritise your hardest subjects – allocate them more time.


Use short breaks – if you travel on a bus or train, use this time.


Work out what works for you – reading out loud? Rewriting notes in your own words?


Stay well-hydrated with water – particularly if you’ve upped caffeine intake.


Take a break after 60 minutes – stretch, walk around and get refreshed.

#10Just do it. Don’t procrastinate – sit down, set a timer and  start studying!
