B l i n k and you’ll miss it.
This semester has flown by so fast and here we are, fast approaching exam time. Time for us to hustle and prove that we’ve paid attention and are proactive with our learning! Make those $$$ and sleepless nights worth it!
Now if this is your first University Exam experience and you want to know exactly how much it will demand of you and how to handle it, there are a couple of workshops that you can take advantage of that are happening over the next few weeks leading up to SWOTVAC.

7 Tips for Exam Success
In the past, we’ve written some blog posts about exam tips and tricks we swear by. But if you’re more inclined to do so, there is a workshop on Wednesday the 7th of May at TLC 315.

P.S.: This event has a repeat session on the 25th of May, if you can’t make it to this first one.

Exams are always tough and the only way out of them is through. Just put in the work and try to internalise all that you can, the rest will come easy. Good luck!
