05 May Tips for Conquering College Finals
Spring is in full swing, and while the warm weather means more sunshine and blooming trees, it also signals the much-dreaded finals season. Before you can pack up your dorm room and head to the beach, there’s a whole lot of studying that needs to happen in a very short period of time. Maybe you’ve been studious all semester and just need a little refresher of the material before exams begin. Or maybe you slacked off a bit and will be pulling all-nighters to cram. If you can relate more to the latter, here are some tips to get you through finals.
- Pick a responsible study buddy. Having someone to help divide and conquer a semester’s worth of material can help you make sure you aren’t missing any important concepts.
- Eliminate distractions. Turn off your phone, put it in a drawer, and pretend it doesn’t exist until you’re ready for the exam.
- Stay awake and focused. If you find your mind wandering and your eyelids drooping, take a 5-hour ENERGY to help you stay awake and on task.
- Reward yourself. You memorized the names of all 557 Chinese emperors and solved that tricky differential equation. Take a walk to the dining hall and treat yourself to something tasty and awesome. You deserve it! Then go back to your dorm and continue studying.
Good luck with finals, everyone! You got this!
