Things you need to know about exams at SHU

By JordanBrowzer 04 Jan 2018

For most of you, your January exams will be your first exams at Sheffield Hallam, and it might be a little different to what you're used to.

Maybe you've never even taken an exam in the UK before!

There are a few things you'll need to know before you sit your exam and that's why we're here to help:

"What am I allowed to take into my exam?"
There are certain things that you can take into your exams and others that are banned so PLEASE make yourself familiar with these...

Remember to follow the guidance provided by your lecturers, the invigilators and on Shuspace.

"I think I get it but I'm still a bit confused..."
If you're unsure of anything, email or meet your tutors/lecturers to clear it up. They are there to help and will be able to answer any questions you have!

"I'm not sure where/when my exam is..."
Make sure you've checked your timetable so you know what time your exam is and what room it's in. University exams can be all over campus, so if you've not been to the building before - double check in advance! This way you have one less thing to worry about. It's also a good idea to arrive early (don't forget your SHUcard!)

"I've got so much going on, I can't really manage it..."
Feeling stressed and anxious over exam periods is expected because it's not easy managing all the different things going on. If the feeling lasts a bit longer than usual, contact Student Support Services for a chat. 

Good luck - we hope you smash it!
