Experience a day full of academic review and fun at Exam Jam! Attend course-specific instructor-led sessions, general exam preparation workshops, writing consultations, and Facilitated Study Groups. Between your review and study sessions, participate in a variety of exciting wellness activities, such as playing with therapy dogs, crafts, board games, fitness and more, as you enjoy free healthy snacks, music, and an amazing atmosphere of UTM coming together for a vibrant all-campus event.

This UTM-wide event continues to grow each year, making it one of the largest annual events for UTM students. Each Exam Jam, Academic Affairs and Student Affairs join efforts to support you during this stressful time of year. 96% of surveyed participants would recommend ExamJam to a friend, while 97% of surveyed participating instructors feel the event helps prepare students for exams.

In students' own words:

It felt like instructors cared about their students in a way
that cannot be expressed in the classroom. By participating, they show a genuine interest in our success. Also, the event shows how the university wants us to be as prepared as possible so this type of initiative is a good stepping stone. It’s the right push students need to get going, especially if they have a ton of exams...

It was different and relaxing and a great change from
studying alone at home. The review session for my course was really good.

I loved knowing that there are people
who care about my wellbeing.
