Every year TSR reaches fever pitch during the exam season. Specific threads are made up for each exam where students come to discuss what likely topics will be coming up and how best to prepare for them. After exams the community come together to share their experiences, celebrate with each other or offer condolences and advice on next steps. All main subjects will have a specific exams sub forum, which you’ll need to look out for if you want to ask a question about a particular exam.
Select your subject here from the forum list- check out what others are saying about your most tricky subjects, or ask your own questions.
Throughout the year students post on TSR for help with all manner of different study queries. Often users have homework related issues which they need help with; posting in the correct subject forum is crucial to get the specialised knowledge that is needed. Students also come to TSR to discuss how they’re feeling about their current courses, where emotional support is also offered as well as specific study help.
