TU832 Architecture Suitability TestTU Dublin have recently emailed all CAO applicants to the TU832 Architecture programme by email last week in relation to the upcoming Suitability Test. While we have received some responses, we have not heard back from numerous others. As a matter of importance, so that any applicant to the TU 832 Architecture programme does not miss out on the opportunity to take the Remote Suitability Test, could we ask for your assistance in communicating a message to your students on TU Dublin’s behalf please?

We are all operating in a changed environment at present. This means an overview of how teachers and students had planned to manage work and preparation for state exams.
There are a few stages we need to consider before we can all move forward.
- We must accept that for now we will all do our work differently. This mindset change is key.
- Planning. ‘First things first’. Draw up a workable plan/timetable for your school days at home. Your teachers will have informed you how they will communicate with you. Plan your work around this. Post this plan on your phone and on the wall where you study.
- Routine may sound boring, but it is your best ally for greatest satisfaction, productivity and success. Go to bed, get up, shower and dress at your normal time.
Useful general guidelines
- Stay connected with your support group. Talk to others use social media/phone etc...
- Keep hydrated, eat and sleep well. (You’re not on holidays so no late-night social media or Netflix... viewing)
- Do get plenty of fresh air and exercise.
- Be mindful of the reason's schools have closed – social distancing to reduce spread of Covid-19. Think of novel and enjoyable ways to enjoy your down-time with family as face to face interactions with friends are discouraged.
- Mind your mind! Fretting about what may happen is unhelpful. Stay positive, good humoured and engaged with others especially family.
- It is important not to panic and worry about things beyond your control, oral exams, project submission dates and so on will be reviewed by the State Exam Commission and information will be provided to you as soon as made available.
- Every exam student in the country is in the same situation so you are not at a disadvantage to anyone else.
- Finally avoid being overwhelmed and procrastinating – put your work plan together and start acting on it today!
- You are used to working within the school day timescale (9am – 4pm). Keep to that routine as much as possible. This will also help greatly when schools resume.
- Give yourself enough time to complete the work set by your teachers – rushing through work is not helpful to the learning process. 40-50 mins blocks per subject every day followed by 10 min break. Think marathons rather than sprints when it comes to managing your motivation and energy levels.
- Vary your work approach. Teachers use video, reading, written work during class-time. Make use of the wide variety of teaching, websites (studyclix/irevise see link below) learning styles over the next few weeks.
The next two weeks is an opportunity for you to consolidate the knowledge that you have accumulated.
- Separate schoolwork from study as you do in the normal course of the week. Work in 25 min chunks followed by 5 min break (10 min break after 60 mins study)
- This is a fantastic opportunity to practice key exam preparation skills: Timing yourself as you simulate exam conditions
- Look at your mock papers again, note how you can improve your answers and rewrite exam questions
- Organise your revision notes!
- Check Examinations.ie for exam paper questions and marking schemes Make sure you have attempted the questions before checking the marking schemes.
Some revision sites are offering free access until the 29th March. It might be an option for some students to have a look. I have attached a link to one below and others will be put on St Conleth’s twitter feed.
