High school students are counting down the final days of the school year and are itching for finals to be over so they can start their summer vacation! With all the excitement for summer to begin, it’s easy to want to dash through finals to get to vacation. In order to make it through that final crunch week, students need to be focused, prepared, and have their eye on the prize. Here are some tips to make it through finals week that may be beneficial to high school students.
Sleep. While it is tempting and seems like the best way to get a lot done, pulling all-nighters tends to do more harm than good. It will make you tired and unfocused during your tests, as well as throwing off your sleep schedule for exams to come.
Make a schedule. Don’t just wing it. Organize what finals you have when and how much studying you will need to do for each one. Organize the time wisely. If you don’t need to spend a whole hour on one subject, give yourself more time for another final. Write it down and check it off as you go. Nothing feels better than checking something off of a list.
