Tests and exams without fear
All professions have to be learnt. But who teaches us how to study? Alongside such skills as digital skill and communication in a foreign language, learning to learn is one of the key skills for personal realization and development, according to the European Union. To acquire it, you need to know what kind of student you are and take a look at your habits and the resources and techniques that you use.
The UOC Library has compiled a series of methods and tools to enhance your performance and pass your continuous assessment tests, cumulative or validation tests, and final exams.
- The first steps. To get the best performance out of studying, you need to do some ground work. Eat and sleep well, choose where to study and organize your work place.
- Do the ground work. Developing a study plan is crucial to help you achieve the objectives set and work steadily.
- What kind of student are you? Do you assimilate concepts better based on images such as diagrams or mind maps, or through text summaries? Discover what you’re learning style is and what techniques are most useful for you for studying.
- Make the information work for you. The dossier includes resources for using your study techniques and completing the material you work with. Among them, you will find specialist tools from the Library, such as databases and a series of open-source tools to make information graphics or mind maps.
- A break from studying. A series of ideas to switch off between one module and the next.
- Final days. Learn how important the final revision is and discover a mobile app to help with it.
