Lancaster University to hold ‘Demystifying Exams’ events

They aim to reassure undergraduate students about this year’s summer exams

Lancaster University has announced two events focusing on ”demystifying exams” for undergraduate students.

The events will take place in the Great Hall, where exams are usually held, and aim to calm some of the worries students may have.

The sessions are to support students sitting in-person exams this summer, who have not yet had to complete any formal assessments due to disruption from the pandemic.

They aim to “give students a taste of an exam venue and a walk through of what to expect”, and will cover aspects of both main venue and adapted arrangement exams.

The events will also answer common queries including what to bring to the exam, how to complete and seal answer booklets, what to do with your person belongings when you arrive, and the support available if you fall ill during your examination.

It will also cover what not to do in exams and what will happen in the event you are suspected of academic malpractice.

The event will be supported by the Library as well as the Counselling and Mental Health Services, who will describe how students can access their support.

There will be an opportunity for any questions at the end of the session.

The two events will take place at the Great Hall on Monday 21st March 3 pm to 4 pm, and Tuesday 22nd March 11 am to 12 pm.

No booking is required for these events and undergraduate students are encouraged to “just turn up on the day”.
