There are a number of different types of group work, such as assignment groups, study groups and writing groups. But regardless of the type of group, it should be formed taking academic considerations into account.
Overall, there is much to be gained both in an everyday context and at exams by investing time and energy into a well-functioning study group.
Many courses at the university include group work as a compulsory and important part of the structure of the course. This is another reason why it is important that your group is effective and that you know how to use it.
