The F word sends fear through most students. FINALS! So much to remember so much to learn in such a small amount of time. How will you ever do it It doesn’t have to be that way. Here are a few thing you can do so that finals become less stressful.
1. Know your course breakdown – Coursework, midterms and end of unit test may count towards your overall grades. Using these opportunities to gain marks means that you will have passed or will closed to passing before you take the final. 2. Keep you notes organised, this will save you time when you come to review. If you want to be super organised you can write your review soon after the lesson while the topic is fresh in your mind. 3. Don’t study for finals, review for final. This is state of mind – review implies that you already know most of it (and you do) and that you are reminding yourself of it. 4. Plan you review. You always know when your finals (the clue is in the name). Figure out the time you have available to review start 2 or 3 weeks away from finals and start reviewing your work early so that you have time to look over all of you early notes. 5. Work with a friend, share knowledge and support each other to work harder.
