Five revision hacks for 2024
Welcome back. It’s a new year and assessments are here.
You’re rested, you’re ready and we’re in your corner with five great ways you can ramp up your revision.
1. Build a revision plan with our online revision resource
A revision plan helps you to stay organised and focused. You’ll be able to prioritise subjects, build a study timetable and discover which revision strategies work for you.
Visit our Revision and exams page for guidance on what to do and how to get started.
2. Get smarter together with group study
Working with friends helps you identify gaps in your learning, retain more information and get through the grind with moral support.
You’ll need at least three people to book a group room or booth, and don’t forget to check in when you arrive to make sure you don’t lose your space.
Go to our Study space page to find out more and where to book.
3. Adapt to Online Time Limited Assessments
Online Time Limited Assessments provide new and different challenges (and opportunities) from regular assessments. You have more time and more access to materials but you must engage with them more critically.
With a little help from your Libraries, you can find the right resources, sharpen your critical writing and even set-up your space to be as comfortable as possible when taking your tests.
Head to our Online assessments page to learn more.
4. Use our new feature on Spacefinder
Searching high and low for a study space? You need Spacefinder.
It lists all 64 campus study locations and you can search by criteria to find your ideal spot. Want to work casually, in a group, in a historic environment with nearby coffee? Spacefinder can find the perfect space for you.
Spacefinder also has a brand new feature telling you how much seating is still available in the Laidlaw and Edward Boyle libraries, so you’ll always know if you can find a spot.
Test the new Spacefinder feature out for yourself!
5. Make the most of our Craft and Chat sessions
Fun breaks can be motivating rewards that prevent revision burnout. What better way to take a break from your screen, then with some arts and crafts?
Visit Laidlaw’s Pause area from 16 – 18 January and relax with our crafting activities.
If you have any ideas on how our creative, wellbeing space can be improved, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
