Biology and LS&T have some courses that are concidered 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.

Exam support sessions for 2018-2019 are listed below:


In two weeks, the exam for the course Bio-Organic Chemistry (BOC) will be held. To help you prepare for this, we've organized an Exam Support Session! On Tuesday, October 30, experienced tutors will be available for all your questions from 14:00 - 17:00 in 5173.0176 (Linnaeusborg). During the session, the re-examination of January 2014 will be discussed. It is not necessary to prepare the exam, as you will be making that exam during the session. Sign up for the event here

Also, if you'd just like to study, a Learning Community session will be available from 10:00 - 15:00 without the tutors, so you have some more time to study in quiet for your upcoming exams.

Get educated, and get smart!

Coming up is an Exam Support Session for the BME Master course Control Engineering! This session is organised in collaboration with G.T.D. Bernoulli and de Chemische Binding. During this session, the course coordinator Claudio De Persis will go over a mock exam on the 30th of October from 9:00-13:00 in 5159.0029 (Energy Academy). There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and you'll be super prepared for your exam! You can just walk in during the session, no need to sign up. No worries, there will be coffee as well.

GLV Idun also collaborates with AthenaStudies.

Athenastudies is an exam course enterprise by and for students with a strong focus on quality.We want to offer Idun's members the best exam courses for a low price. The teachers that are hired by AthenaStudies are required to have completed the course themselves with an 8 or higher. Subsequently, the teachers must receive an average evaluation of a 7.5 or higher from their students to be allowed to teach courses for AthenaStudies. Therefore, students are always assured of an exam course with outstanding quality. It is for a reason that the exam pass rate of Athenastudies is at an exceptional level of 87%. You can sign up for an exam course at or where all courses offered for the faculty FWN can be found. Example of upcoming exam courses are:

Bio-Organische Chemie, Moleculen & Reactiviteit, Biomathematica (from Inleiding in de Biomathematica en Biostatistiek), Biomathematica en-statistiek  and Wiskunde voor Levenswetenschappen.

These exam courses of AthenaStudies will be given before the first exam as well as for the resit.
