Dear All,

 

I was wondering that with the current weather conditions several students will miss their revision lectures. Even staff may choose to absorb their revision lectures (usually last teaching week) to cover for this weeks loss in lectures.

Do you/your students revise for exam using past papers? Often on your own? Have answer to some questions but not all? If yes, then read on...

Over the past three years or so I have been using Examopedia with my students, an exam revision website I launched in 2007. Year on year students have like it .

As an academic using Examopedia I can find out where the students have a gap in their knowledge and provide guidance to them in specific topics. Besides I have noticed an improvement in the quality of answers.

As students you can either choose to contribute and gain feedback guidance direct from your peers/academics OR read contributions from other students.

With the adverse weather condition, it may be that your revision lecture is cancelled and perhaps you want to make use of the site.

Let me know if you have any questions before you decide to pass it on to colleagues/students you think may benefit form it. I already have the site ready to add upon requests from students and colleagues.
