Work to a plan. Planning is essential to help us achieve our goals. Create a schedule of your assessment and exam dates and a timetable that includes your study periods, work hours and downtime.

Be prepared. Read the assessment and exam guidelines for each of your courses thoroughly. This will allow you to be fully informed before beginning these tasks and will help ensure that you cover the appropriate material.

Be proactive. For those of you preparing for mid-semester exams, take practise examinations after reviewing the course material. By completing these tests under similar circumstances as your actual exam, you will test your understanding of the material and familiarise yourself with exam conditions.

Be aware of the rules. It is really important to uphold academic integrity in your academic work. Ensure you are aware of the rules by completing our academic integrity module on Wattle. For those of you submitting assignments, check if word limits apply and be aware of any penalties that occur if they are not adhered to by checking the assessment guidelines or the class summary.

Ask for help. Your convenors and tutors are here to help you with your learning. Use the consultation opportunities to clarify anything you are unsure about.

Be kind to yourself. Take care of yourself by eating well, getting adequate rest and exercise. A healthy body and mind is important for learning and getting the most out of life. If you are struggling and need some support, check out these ANU resources – Student Safety and Wellbeing and TalkCampus.
