It is more effective to prepare for exams continuoulsy throughout the semester. If you have not yet started, it is time to devise a revision plan NOW.



  • Prioritize your exams -e.g. by starting with courses that you are less confident in, spending more time on courses where exam carry heavier weighting in the overall assessment (review syllabus/ check with tutor if necessary)
  • Set an objective for each study period (e.g. each day or week) - so that you can ascertain whether you are on track
  • Allow time for (early, if possible) completion of term essay or project
  • For more tips on how to prepare for your exam effectively, please look at the "Study Smart" pack prepared by CEDARS
