It’s your final week, and you’re worried about how you can survive the final weeks and ace the exams, right?  Cheer up!  For your convenience, we’ve come up with these easy tips to will help get you through finals week, hopefully with outstanding grades. 


Prepare Yourself Mentally and Physically

Preparing yourself mentally and physically may seem insignificant, but they are essential. Most students don’t think about their mental or physical situation, but if you are having trouble studying or you are tired, these can be significant impediments to a successful week.  Prepare yourself for finals week with these simple steps.


Gather Your Best Resources

Once you’re done making a healthy schedule for your physical and mental health routines, you can begin to gather the resources that you will need to study for your exams and finals. These can include your notes, textbooks, guides, flashcards, or digital resources. 

Think about the kind of material that works best for you. If you think textbooks, notes, and flashcards have proven to be helpful in past exams, then use them. At the same time, if you learn best with digital resources, then arrange to have a laptop or tablet available and make sure you are able to keep them charged at your study location. 


Schedule Everything

Allot times for studying for your finals in each of your classes/subjects. If you know you are weak in a  specific subject, allow yourself to spend more time on that one than for others.


Study Smart not Hard!

There are things you can do to help make studying more efficient and effective.


Remember, the numbers on your transcript don’t represent your intelligence. Your grades do not define who you are.  Study and prepare to the best of your ability and then do your best.  Make sure to take care of yourself through the process.
