The Week Before Finals

Summer is just around the corner! All we have to do (for the most part) is just make it through the dreaded finals week. Of course, for most students, the week before finals can be just as stressful as the week of finals because this is when your bulk studying should take place. In order to prevent a finals meltdown, here are some tips for staying in control the week before finals:

  • Know when your finals are: First and foremost, know your finals schedule. If you have an exam on Monday and another exam on Friday, it may be a good idea to focus more on the Monday exam because you have less time to study for it than the one that is four days later.
  • Make a study schedule: It’s important to know what classes you should be studying for, and when. Know what classes will require the most study time, as well as your finals schedule, and plan your study time accordingly.
  • Getting adequate rest: It’s popular for students to think that they need to pull “all-nighters” and mess with their sleep schedule in order to cram in extra study hours. Sticking to the schedule you planned will allow you to put in the necessary time you need to study while still getting a good night’s rest.

Most of all, it is important to realize that although finals are important, no single test will determine your future. The key is to prepare adequately to ensure you can perform your best on test day.

Best of luck to everyone!
