Please be aware that the University expects students to make themselves available for all exam diets and you should not book trips or events during these times.
For more information on exams at Strathclyde, including some great tips and techniques on studying and preparing, check out the University's guidance here! The FAQ will tell you everything you need to know, including what to do if you're running late for an exam, what to do if you're not well, and what you need to bring along.
Remember that if anything has affected your studying (including illness), then you must submit Personal Circumstances to inform the University. See our guide to Personal Circumstances here.
The Student Wellbeing Group are hosting morning sessions (BYOB - bring your own breakfast!) each day of exams from the 3rd right through to the 18th December at 9:30am. You can register your interest here and you'll be sent a Zoom link - you're welcome to pop along to any session as many times as you like!
Colleagues from the Advice Hub, Disability and Wellbeing, the Library, Study Skills, Strathclyde Sport, the Chaplaincy, and Accommodation will be there for a chat and some advice to keep you as well and healthy as possible over the exam period, or to point you in the right direction if you need a bit more support.
We have also compiled some resources that we think might give you some pointers:
- Guide to Stress Free Exam, Personal Circumstances and Academic Appeals - everything you need to know about exams and submitting Personal Circumstances if there's things going on in your life that are impacting on your studies.
- Feelings of Anxiety? A self-help booklet - anxiety is tough to deal with, but this booklet which utilises techniques and exercises from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a great starting point for managing this.
- Exam Wellbeing Guide - a great compilation of support available at Strathclyde and some top study tips.
- Revision Timetable - sometimes it can be hard to know where to start, but this template will help you break down your studying into manageable chunks.
- Sleep Hygiene Tips - ensuring good, healthy sleep isn't always easy, especially when you're feeling stressed or worried. These tips will help you to maximise your opportunities to get a good night's rest.
