Five fantastic final exam tips
The marathon of the winter semester is almost over—here are five study tips to help you reach the finish line at the end of April.
If you have advice for your fellow students you can add to this list on our facebook page www.facebook.com/UofAEngineer. What advice would you share?
1) Know where and when your exams are being held. Check out important information about exams and read the schedule posted by the Registrar’s Office.
2) Work in a study group. Engineering is not an individual sport, and neither is an engineering education. Studying with your fellow engineering students really helps—it sets specific times and dates to study and gives you a chance to discuss and clarify subject matter with your class mates.
3) Help is available to study for your finals. The Math and Applied Sciences Centre has posted a schedule of upcoming study sessions and the Student Success Centre has a list of last-minute exam strategies.
4) Get your calculator sticker now
. If you wait until 10 minutes before your exam to get your sticker, don’t even try to calculate the odds of actually getting in to write your exam. Get your calculator sticker now and avoid being stressed out later.
5) Feeling sluggish?
The university has many services and opportunities to help you keep in shape physically, mentally and emotionally. Check out the Campus Rec website
and Student Counselling Services
to find out what’s available to keep you in shape for exams.
