    when I studied at

    Hi,

    Question:
    In my cover letter, I mention "when I studied at ABC University" too often.
    Is there any sentence/clause that can substitute "when I studied at ABC University" ?


    Original sentence:
    When I studied at ABC University, I was select to mark exam papers.


    Rewritten sentence1:
    During my study time at ABC University, I was select to mark exam papers.

    Rewritten sentence2:
    During my studying time at ABC University, I was select to mark exam papers.

    Rewritten sentence3:
    Your verison.

    Thanks

    I believe that you are relying on "study" too much. There are other words that fit better.
