What it's like to take an Exam during Lockdown

Topic Started By: anngardner97       Created: Sat, Nov 12th, 2022, 10:13 pm

Although some students have been able to take home exams before, many will be unfamiliar with the online system. As part of my third-year final assessments, the exam was something completely different for me. It taught me a lot more about confidence and discipline in studying.


My exam timetable was published on the 3rd of April. Uncertain what I would be getting this year, my exam was scheduled for Thursday 7 May at 10am and will last 23 hours. What was that? I was given 23 hours to complete the assessment and submit it via Blackboard to my department. Panic was my first instinct. How could I manage to write two essays in one sitting? It took me weeks to create an essay I was satisfied with. Here is how I conquered exam anxiety to complete the assessment in record time.


This was an exam. You may find it difficult to give yourself more time to answer essay questions in essay-writing situations. The freedom to spend as much time as you like can make it seem that you are able to write the same quality coursework that took weeks. It is an exam. The marker is aware of this fact. You will only be asked to provide an answer in the exam hall if you spend enough time preparing. Be realistic about the limitations of the timeframe and don't expect too much.


An additional tip for essay-based exams is to become familiar with the exam criteria. While this would work for any year, it may not be as useful for an online exam. Is there a word count? How many questions do you now have to answer? This was a huge relief as my exam required that essays not exceed 1,000 words. I was able to plan my essays using a structure that was both concise and easily achievable. This helped me calm down some of the anxiety that I felt about having to write pages upon pages.


I knew that the exam was open-book when revising. I had all the resources I needed to pass the exam. When taking notes, I made sure to take this into consideration. I planned them so they were easy to see again when I needed them. I also saved useful websites and essays to a Chrome folder so I could quickly refer to them during my 23 hour exam period.
