You’ve got a long road ahead, but it doesn’t need to be painful. Here are five tips for keeping cool before, during and after exam time.
Studying isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. Don’t burn yourself out cramming. Give yourself more time to study than you think you need to get through all the necessary material.
Pick a study spot that helps you be more productive (remove distractions), review your study guide, make note of topics that need a little extra TLC and set aside extra time for them. Practice self-care, take breaks, and rest your eyes regularly.
Stay zoned in on your own personal bubble. Try not to pay attention to other students’ progress. It’s time to let all your hard work show.
Reward yourself with pizza and beers, copious episodes of that TV show you’ve been bingeing, a nap, or even just a nice pat on the back. You did it! You’re a champ.
