Exam Tips


3 simple steps to success


Set yourself a realistic timetable for revision and then try to stick to it. If you are well prepared for an exam it will help you to feel calmer and more confident.


Take time out from your revision to do something you enjoy and treat yourself for your hard work. Why not come along to one of our relaxation sessions?


Make sure you get enough sleep; it helps the brain take in knowledge and you will be able to concentrate better. Likewise, make sure you drink lots of water to keep your brain topped up!


ASK for help! It’s much easier to fix a problem in advance of the exams, so do not be afraid to ask a member of staff for advice. Be it if you are unwell, don’t understand a topic or you don’t know where your exam is being held. Everyone has the same goal to support students get their degrees, so please get in touch!

Preparing for the Exam Period:

Make sure you have read and understood the examination guidelines; particularly in reference to ‘Fit to Sit’. You can find out information on the policies on the VLE. For example look for the link to 'What to do if things go wrong'.

If you are unsure of procedures or availability of exams, urgently contact the examinations team on examinations@bpp.com with as much detail as possible regarding your issue.

The Students’ Association Independent Advice team can provide information on exams and procedures. We can also help if things don’t go according to plan. If you have any queries, get in touch on independentadvice@bpp.com
