What is an Exam -AID?

Our volunteers help coordinate and run Exam-Aid sessions aimed to help 1st year and 2nd year students prepare for exams, right where they need it. Students get a 2- 3 hour lesson on all their course material and their own Exam-AID package that helps them get the practice they need at home. For Winter 2013 are providing Exam-AIDs for students to help better prepare them both in knowledge and in confidence in various science courses.
