Exam Season

Saturday 13 April 2019

I just wanted to write a quick blog post to help people be aware about resources that are available to support students through the exam season! I always have mixed feelings about this time of year. On the one hand, it is often the moment when the nature of actvities becomes more mechanical and the focus is a little more on cramming and exam technique than I would choose. On the other hand, it is also the moment where - hopefully - everything can come together. The last bits of hard work where all these ideas make sense simultaneously. Students are stressed, but also often they are switched on and ultimately receptive. I'll be glad for them when the exams are done. In the mean time, lets make the most of the remaining available time! Good luck to all tecahers and students out there for the coming season.
