Stressed about your upcoming final exams? The Senior Savior is here to rescue you from scantrons and study guides.
Should I study with friends?
Friends are a great resource to you as you study. They can help you in subjects you don’t quite understand, they can help quiz you, or they can just help by providing you with moral support. You can even make it a study date; just bring your study materials along with brain food, energy drinks, caffeine, and gum.
There is no reason why studying can’t be fun. However, just as friends can be a valued resource, they can also be a distraction. If you don’t think you can handle all the excitement of studying with a friend maybe it is best if you just fly solo. There is nothing wrong with studying alone.
How should I prepare myself for finals?
Study over the weekend and prepare yourself for your upcoming exams. Do not wait until the night before to cram. It has been proven that students actually forget more information by cramming than by doing nothing at all. Cramming also adds unwanted stress to an already stressful situation.
Just take 30 minutes a day to study for each class. Now you shouldn’t study for your A set final when you have a different exam sooner. The day before, dedicate your studying to your next two finals. Remember this is not a cram session, just refresh the things you need to know. Also the night before your final, get a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast in the morning.
What is the best thing to do after finals?
After you finish an exam, grab some friends and go to lunch. There is nothing better than coming down from a major test by spending time with your friends. Take a couple hours and do not think about school. Just be proud of how well you did. Grab a cup of coffee. Get a bite to eat. Go see a movie. If you aren’t feeling particularly social after a final just go home and take a well deserved nap.
Now, after you have completed all of your finals DO NOT THINK ABOUT SCHOOL! Enjoy your Christmas vacation. Spend time with your family and friends. Go snowboarding or just stay home chill. You have deserved the time off school Have fun!
Remember finals are important so don’t just brush them off, but also remember to calm down. At the end of the day it is just another test. So just do your best.
You have been saved! Good Luck!
