Tips from students: managing online exams
“Before the exam, I tested my internet connection and made sure I had my laptop charger handy. Routine helps me stay focused, so I treated the online exam day like any other normal exam, including putting my phone in a different room, being prepared with water and a snack (and notes for an open book exam), and being at my computer about 10-15 minutes before the exam started. During the exam, I kept the exam tab open at all times, saved my Word document I was working in every 15 minutes and stayed to my exam time plan I made at the beginning to make sure I submitted on time.”
Brianna Smith – Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting), Bachelor of Business (Finance)

“To get ready for exams, I went over all the revision materials given to me and attended any drop-in Zooms available. I found the best way to completing my exams online is to try and create the right environment. By mimicking the environment of the exam venues as closely as possible, I found it much easier to get into the right headspace and complete my work. I would recommend you find a clean and quiet spot where you can completely focus. Clear off your desk, get your pens and paper ready to make notes, neatly lay out your pre-labelled books (if allowed) and put away all distractions.”
Claire Zollo – Laws Double Degree (Honours)

UniSA batyr’s top 5 wellbeing tips
UniSA batyr students have come up with 5 top wellbeing tips to help you look after yourself and others around you.

1. Look out
Look out for your family and friends, and notice any behaviour which is different than usual, including sleeping too much, not eating enough and changes in social media behaviour.
2. Get talking
Express yourself and keep communication lines open, and create a safe space for your friends and family.
3. Listen up
Create a space for listening, when you’re not rushing or on the go. This allows you to be fully present and let them know that you care.
4. Reach out
Use the UniSA online and phone services, UniSA health clinics, and other online resources or crisis services.
5. Take charge
Take time out for your wellbeing by doing things you like.
