Many examinations have been replaced with an online time constrained assessment. This is not the case for all exams, so please check your schedule of amended assessments carefully.
Looking after yourself
It’s important to take care of your mental and physical health to be able to do your best. Plan a sensible schedule and balance your work with eating well, exercising and relaxation. You can find more information and resources for looking after yourself on the Wellbeing website.
Staying calm and being effective
Plan to reward yourself for your hard work. After the assessment, do something you enjoy. Whatever you do, don't spend time criticising yourself for where you think you went wrong. Congratulate yourself for the things you did right, learn from the bits where you know you could have done better, and then move on.
The Wellbeing Service provides advice and support relating to health, mental health and counselling to all USW students.

We recognise that many students are facing disruption as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. If you have Covid-19 symptoms, or you are unable to submit an assessment on time due to disruption caused by coronavirus, you can self-certificate for 14 days. If, however, you believe you have individual circumstances which may require further consideration, you can submit an Extenuating Circumstances claim as normal. You will need to do this via Advice Zone Online.
