Exam Aids

Helping Students Conquer Examaphobia

Exam Aids offer fun and engaging learning spaces, organized by student volunteers from SOS Chapters, to help their peers excel academically and feel supported by a community. 

Every Exam Aid is built around a ‘suggested donation amount’ which supports SOS’ global projects to assist underserved students in Latin America.

What is an Exam Aid ?

Exam Aids are offered in a variety of formats including in-person and virtual sessions, recorded webinars, and take-home‘ study packages’. Every campus offers a different set of Exam Aids.

All Exam Aids are prepared by student volunteers who’ve excelled in the courses they are teaching for, and who are committed to helping their fellow students succeed.

Over 100,000 Canadian students have been supported by Exam Aid Sessions and 96% say they would recommend a session to a friend!
