Study properly for written examinations
When it comes to studying for a written examination in an examination hall, we recommend that you start with a strategy for your studies at the beginning of the course. This will mean that you have a reasonable workload throughout the course and will be well prepared when the time for the examination comes. If you do not have good learning techniques and study methods and a cramming strategy for studying for exams, you can read more about how to obtain this on the learning techniques and study methods page.

Nervous about your exam? Do a test exam!
If you want to try out what happens during a written examination, you can come to one of our test examination sessions. This provides you with the opportunity to experience how it works with a real written examination. You will become familiar with what it is like to be checked off on the attendance register, see what an examination hall looks like, and hear what instructions you’ll get. You will also have the opportunity to talk to someone who works as an invigilator – if you want. The next test exam examination session can be found in the student calendar.
