Hello lovelies! Crazily enough, we’re officially nearing the end of the semester, which means you need to begin thinking about finals week and how best to prepare to ace your exams. Read on for some helpful tips and tricks to start preparing for the end of the semester now!

Start now

Begin studying now. The earlier you begin working, the more productive your studying time will be and the more likely you will be able to ace your exams!

Create a study guide

Work on creating study guides for each of your classes, highlighting the key information you need to know. Create definitions for important words, making sure that everything is as succinct as possible.

Ask questions

Visit office hours or talk to your professor after class and get any questions answered on material you are confused about or need clarifying on. The sooner you get these answers, the sooner you will be able to focus on learning and understanding the rest of the material.

Stay well-rested

These last few weeks can be hectic and crazy, but it’s important to get your sleep so you can be energized and well-rested to take on the new day. Having a clear mind will help you focus on the task at hand and give your brain the power to concentrate on tough course material.

Prioritize your time

Create a study schedule and stick with it. Prioritize which subjects need the most work and spend the most time with them.

Consider a study group

Some people study better in a group. Consider meeting up with your fellow classmates for a few study sessions outside of class.

Minimize distractions

The less things getting in the way of your study session, the better. Turn off your phone, stay away from social media, and find a quiet space to work hard and study harder.

Take breaks

In order to be most productive, you need to take a break every once and a while. Your mind needs time to relax and de-stress from studying.
