Exam Preparation Week – Ready, Set, Go!
The Office of the Dean for Student Success is proud to present:
Exam Preparation Week 18-22.6.23
There are all kinds of tests in life - we can't prepare you for all of them, but for those of the exam period – we can!
So right before it begins, we have arranged a week for you that is all about optimal balance and the health of body and mind. All the lectures, meetings, and workshops support your well-being and prepare you, in a holistic and complete way, for the upcoming exam period.
You deserve to take a moment and listen to a lecture that will fill you with motivation, participate in a workshop that provides excellent tools for effective learning, time planning, and exam preparation, or in a workshop that will improve your ability to deal with (and not ignore) the anxiety that arises before and during the exam period.
This week you can also simply have a good stretch with Sport Center instructors under a palm tree, in a variety of Pilates, Chi Kung, Yoga, Tai-Chi or meditation classes throughout the day. Just choose what makes you feel good.
And to finish off the week - we organized an amazing lottery where 150 (!!) of you might win a month-long Sport Center membership.
Cherry on top :)
Let’s prepare together. Are you ready?
Ready, Set, Go!
* All activities are free of charge, though some require pre-registration.

Organization and Coping with the Exam Period
Offered by campus psychological services
Turobovich Room 205
Dr. Liat Sorski
Stress and anxiety manifest in many ways. From accelerated heart rates, increased blood pressure, increased sweating, and increased breathing rates, to emotional, cognitive, and behavioral changes, and many other reactions. This is stress, which is in and of itself, a basic human experience, essential to our ability to deal with the demands presented to us in different situations. Stress and anxiety arise around exams - situations in which ability is measured. Stress and anxiety often appear in full force during the exam, but also affect the learning processes prior to it, and that anxiety can inhibit our full capabilities.
In the workshop we will improve the ability to deal with (and not ignore) the anxiety that arises before and during the exam period, through learning and practicing a variety of techniques to deal with exam anxiety.
Dr. Trach Farber
The workshop will offer a presentation that will focus on understanding the difficult emotions that cause exam stress.
Then practical and creative skills will be suggested to help focus attention and manage anxiety.
Some time for questions and group discussion will be encouraged to facilitate problem-solving and sharing skills.
