- Have a regular sleep schedule
To get through final exams week, sleep is one of the most important things you need to do in order to stay focused. Though, it feels like those hours sleeping could be used to do more school work, you will be grateful that you took the time out to be energized for studying. It allows your body to relax and repair itself. Even more, there is a less likely chance of you falling asleep in the middle of exam when you get the rest!
- Don’t wait till the last minute
Preparing for finals a week in advance isn’t always the surest way to pass. Despite the rush that some may feel, cramming a semester worth of information will more likely leave you feeling overwhelmed. Instead, create a study schedule and try it to stick to it. Going over your work at a decent pace, will not only help you understand everything but it helps you stay relaxed and focused.
- Join a study group
For some people, studying alone is the most efficient way to get work done. For others, studying in a group is more effective. Ensure that the group that you are studying with is focused and you are all able to help each other revise all the information and understand the different topics. Avoid being with a group where everyone gets distracted very easily or know little of the work, it will only increase your stress level.
- Short Breaks
Sometimes when we get into the rhythm of studying, it is hard to break of it. However, we have to do this in order to give our mind a moment to rest a little bit and absorb the information. For about 10- 15 minutes do something that is not related to school such as grab a snack, listen to music or step out for a quick walk.
Good luck on all of your final exams!
