8 Tips for studying for exams
1. Chunk Don’t Cram
We relearn info every time we revisit it. Group your study notes into sections to avoid overload.
Start studying several days before the exam. Cramming the night before will only increase your stress.
3. Stay Positive
It is within you to do well if you work hard and put in the effort. You can do it.
4. Set Priorities
Spend the most time on what is most important for the exam. If you don’t know what’s most important, ask your teacher
5. Make Study Sheets or Cue Cards
Try to summarize main ideas in a few points. Use sheets, cue cards or highlighted notes to draw your own attention to the key words or ideas.
6. Go To The Review Class, Find Out About The Exam
Attend all your classes, including the review class, pay attention and take as many note as you can. Ask questions if you have them. Be sure to know what materials and supplies you can bring and use during the exams.
7. Minimize Distractions
Yes, you want to check your texts and snap chat…. But the more time you do that, the less time you’ll have to study. If you use your device to study, focus on that only. Close other apps/programs and set time aside for study
8. Get Help
Ask your teacher to explain any materials that you don’t understand. Classmates can also help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
