The session will include the following:

   • Organisation/time management/planning

   • Revising effectively

   •   Examination techniques

   • Reducing anxiety

   • On the day/tips for success

To gain the most from the workshop, students are advised to bring
with them a selection of their course notes from one of their chosen
subjects.

The session will be delivered by Glynis Lavington who is a Consultant

education. She has worked for many years in the further and higher
education sectors as an assessor, tutor and trainer.
