Revision and exams – some useful signposts

If you spending some time over the Easter holidays preparing for exams, and finishing those last pieces of work, we would like to signpost you to some valuable help and support.

We have 128 past exam papers as digital items within our library catalogue. If  a department has made past papers available, we have scanned the exam paper and placed it as a digital item in the catalogue. We have just added a number of papers from 2012.  Most of the subjects are from within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences but please have a look, there may be something which helps you prepare.

We have 30 subjects or programmes and within those subjects, 128 papers.  Papers range from those used a few years right up to those we have just added from 2012 exams.

How to find them in the library catalogue

Either

Do a ‘Title’ search for ‘Exam Papers’ and you will have a subject list.

Or

Search for your ‘Module Code’ and if there is one for that module,  the title of the exam paper appears in the reading list in alphabetical order.

In both cases the icon is an orange jigsaw piece so it is quite noticeable.

As with all our digitised items, to access an exam paper you will need to log in to authenticate as a Edge Hill staff or student.

If you are trying to find research, both for revision purposes or finishing assignments, we have created a top 10 tips around how to identify, locate, evaluate and effectively use information.  We have created a PDF document so if you would like to print  and keep, here it is.

Remember we have guides on our web pages to help with academic writing skills.

If you would like a one to one session for revision skills or a group of you would like a support session please get in touch via the Ask desk, 1st floor University Library or email librarian@edgehill.ac.uk

Learning Services and the University is closed until Wednesday 3rd April 2013 but there is lots of help and support on our web pages, especially around academic skills and using eResources so please take a look.
