Resit exams: Keep your cool

Ice cubes

Resit exams can be stressful so the University and Liverpool Guild of Students have been considering ways to ease the pressure at a difficult time in the academic calendar.

There are a number of services available to make access to services easier during exam periods:

  • Exam room locations –this webpage has been set up to show location details for all campus examinations rooms. It gives clear instructions on how to get to each room in case the building is unfamiliar to you: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/student-administration/exams/exam-rooms/.
  • PC Finder tool – this service helps students to see where free PC seats are available. There are a number of PC centres outside the two main libraries, so this tool uses GPS location service on the mobile or tablet to locate where you are before displaying the PC availability in centres close to you: http://pcseats.liv.ac.uk/.
  • Speed stations – Located in the Rendall building, these stations are designed for quick tasks like printing, checking emails or websites – anything which will tie up a PC for less than 30 minutes. For further information please visit: https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/csd/pc-centres/speed-stations/.
  • Print Anywhere – this service enables students to easily print from their own computer, tablet or mobile device. As well as providing more flexible access to printing, the service helps to reduce demand on campus computers which might otherwise have been tied up to complete simple printing jobs: http://www.liverpool.ac.uk/csd/printing/print-anywhere/.

A number of study spaces are available in the Guild. The building is open 9am-5pm during the week including the Guild shop.

Extra support is available, particularly if you feel you are suffering from more than a bout of exam nerves. The following are some useful contact details for University support services which are all free and confidential to access:
