StudyTime Online Resources
At StudyTime we understand you have enough on your plate without the added pressure of finding good study resources. To make resources available to every kiwi student we have free, online subject checklists, walkthrough guides, and strategy guides.
Subject checklists: Tickbox lists that include everything you need to learn for that subject. Before you start studying, you can go over the checklist and work out what you need to revise and what you already know. As you continue your studies, you can tick off what you’ve got downpat.
Online Walkthrough Guides: If you need a bit more practise going over the content taught in class, these online walkthrough guides are super helpful. They break hard topics down and explain it like a mate so you don’t have to dread studying.
Strategy guides: Need some tips for the exam? These strategy guides give you some advice on the structure of the exam for that subject, concepts to focus on, and common mistakes to avoid.
Get access to the subject checklists, online walkthrough guides and strategy guides for your subjects and achievement standards here:
StudyTime Exam Articles
If you want to read something other than your study notes, here’s a few of our best exam related articles.

NCEA Help Group
Sometimes all you need is a friend or experienced mentor to run to for advice or exam help. Join our NCEA Help Group Facebook page which is managed by trained NCEA tutors 24 hours a day.
Join the NCEA Help Group to:
- Ask questions about a specific subject
- Get help fast for your exams
- Talk to other students studying the same subjects as you
- Learn from questions that other students are asking
Some find it easier to ask a question online rather than asking in front of the whole class. Often, you won’t have any questions until you’re studying at home anyway. The NCEA Facebook Group is a great space to ask any study-related questions you may have.

Exam Strategy Videos
It’s the question everyone is asking, “what's going to be in the exam?” These NCEA Exam Strategy Videos are free, short, online tutorials that run through the key concepts covered in the exam for that standard.
NCEA Exam Tutoring
You don't need to cram for exams alone. StudyTime tutors have all sat NCEA exams before and know what it's like to be in the thick of study and feeling a little stuck. They're here to help through online tutoring sessions.
- Struggling with key concepts
- Lacking confidence in sitting exams
- Feeling under-prepared, confused or overwhelmed by your studies
- Unsure where to begin with your studies
- Looking for help answering exam questions
- Noticing you're procrastinating from study
We’ve all been there, you’re freaking out for that one big exam, or that exam date has crept up on you. A last minute exam tutoring session might be what you need to feel more confident about your exams. StudyTime’s cram exam tutoring sessions are all online and run for 30-minutes.
StudyTime Study Resources
Prefer reading and highlighting printed notes? These are our printed Walkthrough guides. They’re exactly the same as our online guides that “walk you through” the key concepts of each standard.
As your teachers and parents always say, “practise makes perfect.” Test how much you’ve learned and how prepped you are for exams with the questions in these workbooks.
There’s nothing like buying new gym gear to motivate you to workout. We think stationery does the same thing for study. We’ve got two items in out stationery range, a study wall-planner poster which covers an 8 week study programme, and a study planner notepad to help you stay productive in each study session.
