Semester Two Examination timetables to be released from Monday 13 March
From Monday 13 March you will receive your personal examination timetable. This timetable is just for written exams; schools will inform you of arrangements for oral or practical examinations.
Your personal examination timetable will outline the dates, times and locations of any written examinations.
If you have a Reasonable Adjustment Plan, which states you are entitled to an individual/separate room for an examination you will still receive an exam timetable via email but it will show the main venue details. Please liaise directly with your School office for the individual/separate room arrangements.
The semester two exam period this year falls between Monday 8 May and Friday 26 May. As this exam period is approaching we want to remind you of the fantastic support services available.
We have lots available to help you both with the academic side of preparing for exams, such as revision and time managements, and the personal side, such as stress and procrastination.
Academic help for exams
Skills for Learning are here to help you get the best marks possible. While they offer lots of support throughout the year that you should check out, they do offer tailored resources and workshops for exams.
They have loads of information on their website to help you reach your potential in exams, including guides on revision, approaching exams, procrastination and time management – all of which you can find here. In addition to this, they also have a really useful blog here.
Personal help for exams
Our Wellbeing team at the University can also give you some personal support before, during and after exams.
Made up of Wellbeing Advisors and Counsellors, this team can provide you with a range of services in the run up to exams. Anxiety and stress are common when preparing for exams and if you do struggle with problems like this, we really encourage you to get in touch with the team. Find out how you can do that here.
Also, there is support available if you have a personal issue that means you are unable to sit an exam, or submit a piece of work. These are called Personal Mitigating Circumstance (PMC) forms and they're available here.
