Classes has pretty much ended and now comes the dreaded and feared finals week. Many of us are probably starting to stress out about finals now since we haven't been studying the whole semester. If you're not one of those, finals week should be quite manageable, but if you're not, finals week can still be feasible to survive through. Here are some tips I thought were useful throughout my four years fo experience
Plan and organize: It might seem like a hassle to figure out your schedule and plan how to study, but it will most likely save you time and prevent and unwanted surprises. Take the time to look at your final schedule and plan out your study days, and work from there.
Taking a break: Know when your brain needs a break, studying constantly throughout finals week can't be good for you mentally or physically. But when I say break I don't mean going out to party or anything, more like something relaxing like watching a movie or going to the gym, so it doesn't completely take your focus off of your finals.
Sleep: Don't be crazy and study 24/7 We aren't robots and hence we need sleep. Sleep is an important factor in memory and learning, so make sure you get lots of it!
Efficient studying: Get off that instant messaging and turn off that TV. There are so many distractions to keep you from studying! We know what those distractions are, but most of the time we just let it through becuase we enjoy them Gain the willpower to simply tell yourself that you need to study, adn perhaps go to a place where the distractions aren't readily there.
Relax: try not to stress out, easier said than done. But if you plan accordingly and study efficiently, you shopuld be fine!
