STUDENT NEWS AT U OF T
For some students, they are the most emotionally charged words in education: exam season.
It’s a stressful time, whether it’s your first or last round of exams. If you’ve developed poor study habits, or can feel yourself developing them, there are ways to turn things around.
We spoke to students about their studying habits, then asked University of Toronto experts for their take on preparing for exams.

“Coming into U of T with an economics mindset and leaving with a sociology, political science and economics background changed my life. They all tackle global poverty, aid and development, but from very different schools of thought."

ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
The college system
All students within the Faculty of Arts & Science on the downtown Toronto (St. George) campus are affiliated with one of seven colleges. These colleges have deep roots in the history of the University of Toronto; the college system dates back to the earliest days of the university and remains one of its distinctive features. The colleges are a home base for their students and provide the advantages of a closer-knit community experience within a large research university.
