Now that Midterms are nearly here and Finals is just the next step, here are some study tips to remember:
1. Focus on what you struggle on and not what you excel at
Focusing on what you’re struggling on helps save study time and decreases stress.
Once again, study what you don’t know.
Review what you do.
2. Use flashcards
Using flashcards can help you remember the information better (especially if you’re a kinesthetic learner!)
3. Make your own study guides
Stop asking your teachers or professors for study guides and make them yourself! Doing this will help you retain and understand the material better! If your teacher does give you a study guide, then fill it out and highlight what you struggled with.
4. Attend the review sessions or tutoring
These sessions can help provide you with extra information about the exams and what could be on the exam. Take advantage of the resources given to you!
5. Create a study schedule
Make a schedule for your homework, tests, quizzes, what you study and when. This helps clean out the clutter in your head and gives you some peace of mind. BUT, you MUST follow this schedule! DONT PROCRASTINATE!
6. Handle your time thieves!
Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Those friends who always want to hang out or go and grab a ‘quick’ snack. You only need to say one word to them: “no”. These time thieves will steal away your precious study time. Prioritize your study time!
7. Be Kind To Yourself!
Reward yourself when you get a chapter or assignment done. Give yourself a treat or take a breath and relax for a moment. You have to remember that your mental health is important too.
8. Take Breaks
You’re Human. You need to take breaks or you’ll push yourself too hard and end up collapsing. After you’ve studied for a while, take a break. You have to balance your study time so that you can recharge.
I hope these help and Good Luck on your exams and tests!
