Finals time is right around the corner so I thought that it would be fitting so share some quick and easy tips on how to ace your finals and end the semester with a bang.
How to Ace Your Finals
1.Find your studying method // Whether you’re someone who needs to make notecards and go over them a thousand times (me) or someone who glances at the material a few times and still makes an A, by now you probably have discovered your perfect method. Do what works for you. If you know you can’t focus in the library to save your life (me), then don’t study there. You need to maximize your productivity as best as possible.
2. Get lots of sleep // I know this is difficult to do especially if you haven’t prepared in advance for your finals, but your brain doesn’t function as well when you haven’t had much sleep. I know lots of people feel like its necessary to pull all nighters, but if you prepare beforehand for your finals you won’t need to stay up all night.
3. Take study breaks // I’ve posted about maximizing your productivity before, but study breaks are essential to the learning process. When you’re not giving yourself adequate breaks, you’re wasting your time cramming information into your head because you probably won’t even remember it when your brain needs a break.
4. Take care of yourself // During finals time people tend to throw their regular health regime out the window because they’re so consumed with studying, so make sure you continue to eat well and just generally take care of yourself so you don’t end up getting sick because that would only added extra stress to your plate during this time.
5. Eat a peppermint during your exam // I don’t know if this works for everyone, but when I needed to focus during my exam, I always chewed on a peppermint and it helped me stay alert and concentrate better on my exam. I have seen countless different articles addressing this and saying that it seems to work pretty well so maybe (hopefully) it’ll work for you too.
Good luck on your finals, college students! I hope everyone passes them with flying colors. Do you have any tips on how to ace your finals? Feel free to let me know down in the comments.
