Exam Support Sessions

Biology and LS&T have some courses that are considered more difficult than others. To help members, GLV Idun organizes free exam support sessions for these courses.  The exam support sessions take place before the (re-)examinations of those courses.


The classes are given by students that have already taken the courses (and were very good at them!). During the exam support sessions, an old exam is discussed and there is plenty of oppurtunity to ask questions. The classes have proven to be very useful when you need some extra practice before the (re-)examiniation.
