Get exam-ready with the Skills Centre

by Kirsty Hemsworth on 2021-11-15T11:30:00+00:00 in Skills | Comments

This November, the Library Skills Centre is running a range of sessions to support your revision and exam preparation. As well as online sessions, you can also book face-to-face 1-1 appointments throughout November and December – a great way to create a personalised revision plan with an advisor or to get feedback on a practice paper.

Here are our featured sessions:

Self-compassion for personal productivity

An hour long practical, interactive online session with tips to encourage self-management involving a more self-compassionate approach. Book now

Focused Revision Time

The aim of this session is to help clear your mind and get some focused revision done.

The session will be 90 minutes long with approximately 60 minutes of this being dedicated to focused revision, working independently with your microphone off but leaving your webcam on. It sounds like a strange concept if you’ve never done it before but it does genuinely help give you a sense of working alongside others!

Book now: Tue 30 Nov, 4-5:30pm

Virtual drop-ins

Online drop-ins with members of the library team for instant answers to quick assignment and revision questions. Each session includes a member of staff from Academic Skills, Library & Information Skills, and Digital Skills, for 15 minute 1-1s, and there is no need to book in advance.

Drop-ins are every Wednesday, 4-6pm. Join the waiting room here.

Feedback seminars

Feedback seminars are a great way of getting feedback on any practice plans or assignments you’ve written in preparation for your essay exams. These small group, collaborative sessions are held online and in-person, and you can book as a group with others from your course.

To book an upcoming session, head to our online calendar.

Good luck with your revision! If you have any questions about how the Skills Centre can support you, please don’t hesitate to email
