Well the clock is ticking and finals are just starting or are about to start for most of us. Its the time of the year that you don’t know if you should give up and watch some Netflix or push yourself to study more. So as these tough times start to approach us I have a few tips for you.
Don’t waste time watching Netflix and telling yourself it will help you prepare. Because before you know it you’ll be a whole season into a show and finals are the next morning. So get motivated to study. Don’t sweat the small stuff , students typically don’t have many concerns around this time such as eating habits, makeup, working out, are usually not a main priority and that is ok , your final grade is what you worked for all semester.
Make a self created study guide , they are great tools when you rewrite the important information it helps you recall everything you went over this semester. Its also a handy thing to have to look over minutes before the exam. Finals do not have to be so terrible if you make good head way and are prepared. Study guides, study time, note cards and limited distractions are ideal in reducing the anxieties of finals week. Once in the study zone you may even enjoy it.
