Supporting Your Exams
The Law School are committed to providing exam support to you in a variety of forms – this can be through accessing past exams papers on Blackboard, attending bespoke revision lectures within your units, to researching exam techniques and best practices online. Find out more about the ways in which we can support you below.
Your Blackboard units contain a selection of ‘excellent examples’ of assessments to help you identify good practice in preparation for exams. Some units also offer revision lectures or seminars plus resources to guide learning, revision and skill development, so please look out for details of these online. Using Discussion Boards in your units is also a great way to post your queries to your unit coordinator.
Personal tutors are available for general academic support, including revision and exam advice. And don’t forget, subject tutors are available (during term-time, in consultation hours or by appointment) for subject-specific queries.
And don’t forget to check out Director of Education, Imogen Moore’s book: 'The Successful Law Student: An Insider's Guide to Studying Law', available in the Library and all good bookshops and an invaluable aid for assessment success!
Make sure you check out the University Study Skills pages (see top right of your Blackboard page) which includes revision planning, revision and exam technique and much more. You can also find out about drop-ins, workshops and one-to-one support.
