Many students find exam preparation stressful. Being aware of the purpose of thorough preparation, taking control and having a ‘tool kit’ of strategies to use can make a significant difference. This workshop is designed to give students the opportunity to develop successful ideas and strategies for revision and techniques to use during the exam. Students will be able to practise their skills and take useful resources home with them.
The session will include the following:
• Organisation/time management/planning
• Revising effectively
• Examination techniques
• Reducing anxiety
• On the day/tips for success
To gain the most from the workshop, students are advised to bring with them a selection of their course notes from one of their chosen subjects.
The session will be delivered by Glynis Lavington who is a Consultant and Practitioner specialising in the field of dyslexia and higher education. She has worked for many years in the further and higher education sectors as an assessor, tutor and trainer.
