tests before we’re hit with exams. This time of year just has a way of creeping up on us. I don’t know about you, but for me it feels as though the term started only a couple of weeks ago. As such, I thought it would be beneficial for us to share tips. I’ll start, and you guys can leave your suggestions in the comments.
Start studying for exams: Yup, I’m serious. I know some of us might be overwhelmed with the sheer number of assignments and papers that we have to do before exams start, but I think we can all agree that no matter how hard you try, you can’t learn months worth of a course in only two days.
Don’t procrastinate: I don’t know about you, but for me it’s far too easy to put something off, especially when that something has to do with school. “That paper that’s due in two weeks? Uh, yeah I’ll get to it… after I catch up with The Office or something.” Yeah, no. It’s crunch time fellas. Time to finish whatever you can ahead of time so that everything isn’t left to the last minute.
Don’t hibernate: Don’t feel the need to lock yourself in your room or the library without a break. Your
brain needs some rest. There are studies that show you can only learn so much; after a while, you stop taking in information.
You’re here to learn: Instead of cramming and memorizing, remember that the most important
thing for you to do at any educational institution is to learn. Understand what’s happening instead of memorizing a definition word-for-word. In the end, it’ll be easier for you to grasp what’s happening. There’s no point of cramming for an exam and forgetting everything the week later; I mean we do take all of these courses for the sake of learning.
In conclusion, I hope we all ace our finals and that we can maybe even have a little fun while doing so insha’Allah.
