Study Well

With the exam and assessments period upon us, it's so important to look after ourselves. Taking time out is a very important part of revision, and getting away from our desks and doing something different will not only help clear our minds, but allow us to get back to studying with fresh eyes and improved concentration. Looking after ourselves is arguably the most important thing we can do during assessment season, a good diet, decent nights sleep, and regular breaks all contribute to how we feel, it's not just about studying, but studying well.

Independent advice if you need it

Our Team of three independent Advisors are here if you need advice about an exam or assessment-related issue. By independent, we mean we're not part of a University Team or Department so you can speak to us in confidence.

Common challenges we help with throughout exams are how to:

- Submit a Mitigating Circumstances request, when something unexpected affects your performance in an exam or assessment. Here's a link to our guide for more information: Making an IMC request

- Ask for an extension

- Respond to an allegation of plagiarism, cheating or collusion

For advice with your general wellbeing, we recommend making an appointment with a University Wellbeing Advisor using this link: Booking a wellbeing appointment (
