Exams are the only obstacle in between you and your summer break. Organizing your notes (highlighting included), setting up study groups and time in the library, and of course giving yourself relaxation are all extremely important to succeeding during exams. Take even one of these ideas to make exam period a *little* less stressful.
Study at Different Times
This concept may seem a little weird or you may even say “Shouldn’t I be studying ALL the time for exams?” which you shouldn’t as your brain needs to rest too. Some people grasp different concepts at different stages. Test out during the week when you are feeling most “on it”. It may be after your morning coffee, a late afternoon run, or after dinner. Also test out if different subjects flow better at different times. You may find that math is great in the morning and writing an essay is perfect with an afternoon snack.
Don’t Overdo It
With the pressure of everyone else around you also taking exams, a competitive edge is only natural. When your roommate spends all hours at the library and you feel stressed that you’re not doing enough, be sure that you don’t start overexerting your body or brain. Be sure that you are balancing your work at a pace you can handle.
Snap, Scan, Take a Break
