Share your ‘Revision Rescues’

What helps you to revise? From study buddies to revision playlists, or even our online UniSkills resources, we want to hear from you! Share your perfect revision set up or stationery toolbox by tagging us on Twitter @EHULearnService or Instagram @EHULibrary, or simply keep an eye out for inspiration from our team. If you’re passing by or popping into Catalyst, you can also share your Revision Rescues on our exciting new feedback trees!

Ask us Anything!

Also on our social channels we’ll be giving you the chance to submit your revision questions to our team of Academic Skills Advisors. While there’s no right or wrong way to revise, the UniSkills team has lots of experience in exam preparation, effective study strategies, and creating revision timetables.

Online Reassessments 

If any of your exams are online, don’t forget to check out the Online Learning and Assessment web pages, which contain everything you need to know about online Turnitin and Panopto submissions, in addition to Timed Blackboard Online.  

Wellbeing Support  

If you’re feeling particularly nervous about your upcoming Summer Assessments, you’re not alone. Alongside staying organised and planning ahead, it is important to remember there is always someone to talk to. This might be ourselves, your tutor, or the Wellbeing Team

Although you’re likely to be revisiting academic texts as part of your revision, don’t forget we have a reading for pleasure fiction section on the ground floor of Catalyst, which is available to all students in addition to free access to eBooks and audio books via the Libby App.

Happy revising and best of luck from all of us here in the UniSkills team!
