It’s that time of year again…time for finals. And if you are anything like me, you probably dread that whole week dedicated to finals. Fortunately though, I have compiled some tips to help you survive those anxiety-ridden exams.
- Write down deadlines
Mark your deadlines in a planner and check if any finals overlap or you have any schedules of conflict so you can get them resolved right away.
- Plan a study schedule
While you have your planner out, write down when you are going to study for your finals and write any papers.
- Talk to your professors
If you do not understand or are struggling with some concepts then meet with your professors.
- Stay healthy
Eat healthy foods and get at least the recommended eight hours of sleep.
- Study, study, study
Find a quiet and non-distracting place to study. Try not to study just the night before or you will just be cramming at the last minute. Also, quizzing a friend and having them quiz you can help if you are having trouble on your own.
- Take breaks
Do not forget to take breaks from studying or you will just exhaust yourself. It is okay to go for a walk to watch a little bit of TV.
