Exam Panic

Postby lilsair1 » Tue Dec 09, 2014 11:25 am

Hi
Ive just completed Psychology and am now trying to book an exam. I havent studied properly since school, and this was pushing over 15years ago!! :angel:
I hated exams, this been one of the reasons i didnt get great marks. I am not really starting to stress about having to go through all the stress and panic again. Im a mother of 2 with my youngest been 1 year old and having a husband working away on deployment I only every get chance to do my work on an evening. Do exams take place during the day or can there be evening ones?
Looking for reassurance please :?
Thanks for listening

Oooh that's a great question, I would like to know that too !!

It will be extremely helpful for people who travel abroad where there is a time zone difference.

Hey,

I posted some brief information on another forum thread on how the examinations are carried out. All information for the exams are within the Course unit modules and within the TAQ's you have answered - as long as you cover all of that, you have nothing to worry about :)

Follow this link to see my previous post on the exams ---> http://www.distancelearningcentre.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=8345

Let me know if you need any more advice :thumbup:

Hi.

You arrange a mutually convenient time with your tutor, and there are five questions which require a short paragraph answer. Each question is worth 3 marks, so out of 15 in total. You need 50% to pass. Your tutor rings you via skype and then emails you the exam and then stays watching you whilst you complete it. I know how you feel because I was really worried too but as long as you have revised your course modules you'll be absolutely fine. Xx

Thankyou guys, doesnt sound as bad as I was expecting. Is there a time deadline from when you finish the said module as to when you have to sit the exam, or is it just a case of they have to be done before you complete your course?xx

Have to be done before you complete your course but teachers seem to prefer that you do your Skype exams as close to the module as possible - so all the information is fresh in your head :thumbup: :D

HI Jennifer,

This is an old thread and is about Open Awards exams, so it really does not apply to you and no you will not be asked to write essays, everything for Ascentis is in your exam guide, so as long as you follow that you will be fine

I would read the exam guide very carefully as there is a lot of help in there.

Good luck

Exams could be done both daytime and in the evening. Just pick the suitable time for you.
