StudyAid

The exam period and StudyAid is just around the corner, so Education Officer Chloe has a quick message for you:

With the exam period quickly approaching, this time can be incredibly stressful and a little overwhelming.  

Here are my top tips: 

  1. Come to a StudyAid event! 

We’ve organised three whole weeks of activities to help get you through your exams and deadlines. We’re bringing dogs to campus, we’re offering free massages, yoga and posh biscuits, and we’ve got all sorts of fun lined up. Check out the full calendar of events here

  1. Organise yourself 

If you know what you need to do when, it’s easier to be more efficient with revision. It helps you stop wasting time and ensures you have time to cover the content you need. For this, I have found revision timetables incredibly useful! If you get stuck when revising, it’s okay to move on and come back to it later. Writing out an exam checklist the night before, making sure you have your student card, water, and pencil case as well as planning how to get to the exam venue on time, will also make sure you don’t miss anything super important. 

  1. Take breaks 

Revision is important, but so is taking breaks, so schedule them into your revision! One easy way to take breaks is to use the Pomodoro method – work for 20 minutes, then take a 5-minute break, and repeat, taking a half hour break on the third time. Go and make a cup of tea or a snack, go for a quick walk, or take part in a StudyAid event! 

  1. Have a good playlist 

Study spaces can be full of distractions, especially when they’re busy. A good playlist can help you to block it out and concentrate. During the last exam period, I found that the Blue Planet II soundtrack worked well for me, as I didn’t end up concentrating on lyrics, and it was interesting enough that it didn’t get too repetitive. Here are some other recommendations: 

  1. Florence and the Machine 

  1. Lord of the Rings soundtrack 

  1. Electronic Concentration https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DX3XuTDjo5z5z?si=blWJh1D-Rr2qNgW_eIsBJw
