Advice for students waiting for exam results

We do not advise you to adopt a study strategy that might require you to cease studying partway through a session. We recommend that you choose to study subjects at the beginning of the session with the expectation that you will sit those exams. If you cannot judge how well you did in the last set of exams, don’t start to study too many subjects in the next session – it is much better to take on an extra subject if you are ahead of schedule than it is to drop subjects midway through the session and switch back to a previous subject.

If you might need to change your plans in the light of your exam results, then we’d recommend that you apply for a Block Tutorial or a late‐starting Regular Tutorial rather than Regular Tutorials and that you choose Marking Vouchers rather than Series Marking. This will give you much more flexibility should your plans change.
