President (Education and Welfare), Kerry Harrison, give you her round up of the most useful tips for students starting exams this week!
So it’s that time of year again at RGU, January exams. The fun of the festive period is over and you’re hit full force with the realisation that exams start only 9 days past New Year! Don’t fret, I have some tips for you…
1. Eat well
Eating nutritious food such as berries, nuts, wholegrain cereal and bread release energy slowly so you don’t crash and burn!
2. ‘Me’ time
Make sure you take time out to do things you enjoy. It’ll help you release stress and maintain a healthy mind.
3. Minimise study chat with friends
This is a hard one in practice, but hearing what your friends are studying and how much they have done will only make you more stressed, especially close to the exam.
4. Hydrate and refresh
Sip water while you study and in the exam to take your mind off it for a second and to regroup your thoughts.
5. Know yourself
Everyone is different. Some people learn better by speaking notes, others by writing. Some are early birds, others night owls. All are fine as long as it works for you!
Good luck to you all, your Union is rooting for you! Feel free to say hi while you wait on Union Way!
