Exam week tips

Minimise exam period stress by controlling the things you can, like finding the exam dates and rooms, the rules about what you can and can't take, or finding good study spaces.

Here is a list of tips and JCU webpages to help you get the High Distinction that 13 weeks of steady studying deserve.

How does the whole exam thing work?
Exams & results 
Use this to find out where to go, what you need, and when to turn up. You can also find information about how to apply for special consideration, your grades and how to maintain a good academic level.

Where is my exam? 
Exam timetables
Students can find their personal exam timetables in StudentsOnline .
Campus maps to locate exam rooms
You could even do a visit beforehand to make sure you have the right room. There is usually a blue sticker above doorways with the building and room number on it.

What is my lecturer going to ask? 
Past examination papers
Reserve Online is JCU's central repository for past exam papers. A link is also located on the Library & Computing webpage called Readings & Past Exams.

Where can I study in peace? 
Library opening hours during exams.
The libraries in Townsville and Cairns have designated areas for different types of study from silent and solitary to more collaborative group revision. Both have 24 hour computer labs located in the building and Townsville library is open to midnight weekdays during the exam block.


The library staff wish you the best with your exams.
