Introduction

The first thing to bear in mind is that assessment isn't just about getting marks! Assessment serves many purposes, as explained in the following pages — sometimes it is purely a learning process in itself.

Nevertheless, this section focusses mainly on different types of examination, revision strategies, tips on optimising your performance, combating exam stress, and what to check in the run-up to the examination itself.

It will also direct you to other relevant sections of this site, for example on the matter of: dissertations, essays and reports; time management; note taking; etc.
