Exams start soon, so we’ve compiled some useful information to help you survive this exam period.

Take care of yourself

While it’s important to be prepared, it is just as important to look after yourself. Take breaks, eat regularly and try to get enough sleep. This will also help you study better.

Don’t isolate yourself. Talk to your friends or family if you’re feeling worried, and don’t be afaid to reach out to classmates for help. If you need a counsellor the University’s Student Counselling Service offers free appointments. You can also download the TalkCampus app for anonymous support from peers around the world, or call the Uni’s 24-hour mental wellbeing support line.

SUPRA’s professional caseworkers are also here to help you with almost anything you might need. Contact us for help.
