SMD exam survival guide - get the support you need

Monday 25 March 2013

Revising for and taking exams can be a testing time. The Libraries have produced an exam survival guide full of tips, advice, and essential information to help you through.

Over the exam period, the Whitechapel Library will be open from 08.30am-Midnight Monday-Friday, and 1-8pm at weekends. During the summer vacation, Whitechapel Library will be open 8.30am-8pm Monday-Friday and closed at weekends.  Teaching rooms in the Garrod are available for private/group study.

West Smithfield Library will, from 29 April to end of academic year 2012/13, operate the following service:

  • Full lending service during opening hours
  • 9am-9pm opening hours on weekdays
  • 1pm-8pm opening hours on Saturdays
  • Four Sunday openings to coincide with 1st year students’s end of year exam period. Dates of these openings will be confirmed on the Library website
  • 24/7 basement reading and computer room
  • Throughout August opening hours will reduce to 12-5pm on weekdays only. The library will be closed on weekends. The basement room will still be open 24/7, and opening hours at the other libraries are on the website.  

From the next academic year, 2013/14, the service provision at West Smithfield will now be as follows: 

  • Full lending service
  • 12pm (noon) -9pm opening hours on weekdays
  • Closed on weekends during usual term-times, but ahead of finals and 1st year exams, the Library will operate Saturday and Sunday opening hours of 1pm-8pm (this will be flexible year-on-year depending when exams are scheduled)
  • 24/7 basement reading and computer room

For those of you who would like to use the library after midnight, the Mile End library is open 24/7 and becomes a space where you can revise in a quiet or a group study environment at a time that suits you. A series of specialist workshops and tutorials are available at Mile End on a daily basis to support you with exam revision. Check out the guide for more information on the workshops.
