  • referencing information, including the Harvard UTS Referencing Guide which can be used interactively online or printed off as a handy guide, and software to help you collect, store and organise your references,

Managing Exam & Assessment Anxiety

Do you want to minimise the negative impact that anxiety has on your study and exam performance? Check if this workshop is relevant to you.

During tests or exams, do you:

  • feel like you "go blank"?
  • make "silly" mistakes?
  • find yourself thinking "I can’t do this", "I’ll never pass" or "I’m stupid"?
  • feel dizzy or like the room is closing in on you?
  • feel your heart racing or find it difficult to breathe?
  • suddenly remember the answers when the exam is over?
  • get much lower marks than on assignments?

If you answered 'yes' to some of these questions, you may be experiencing exam anxiety. Student Services runs workshops in which you will learn more about your anxiety and how it affects your study and exam performance, learn skills to control your anxiety, and identify strategies to implement before the exams.
