Congratulations! You survived final projects… but it’s not over yet. Over the next couple weeks students will be faced with dreaded exams. Most students would agree that this is the most stressful time of a semester, and rightfully so. Exams can make up a huge portion of a student’s mark so they are not something that should be taken lightly.
Here are some helpful tips to help you survive exams:
1. Manage you time:
-The problem most students face is that they do not leave themselves enough time to study and consequently pull all nighters to make up the time difference. This is a stressful and ineffective way to handle exams. By planning out your study time you can reduce your stress and you will have a better chance of actually remembering what you learned over the semester.
– Your brain needs time to recharge itself. Without sleep your brain is not able to focus to its maximum ability. Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night, and your body will thank you for it.
3. Eat Well:
-It is important to stay nourished. When your body is nourished you are better prepared to bunker down and focus. Make sure to pack plenty of healthy snack for long study periods, because no one feels good after eating cafeteria food for a week.
4. Get Help:
-If there is something that just does not make sense to you, do not be afraid to ask your Professors for help. They are there to help!
5. Try Your Best:
-Remember all you can do is give it your best shot! You have worked so hard to get to this point so don’t waste it by blowing off your exams.
Good Luck Everyone! 🙂
