Here are some last minute tips:

  • Remember to get enough sleep!
  • Have a good and filling breakfast each morning.
  • Studying is only efficient for so long. Use the short days to study for the next test. Take short breaks in between studying where you aren’t focused on your work and can recharge.
  • Check your powerschool the week before finals to make sure you’re not missing any assignments.
  • If you are worried about a final, take advantage of that teacher’s office hours to ask questions. You teachers are required to stay after school after finals and will be there from around 12-3
  • Make flashcards! I didn’t understand how valuable they were until I was nearly done with my sophomore year.
  • Make your notes colorful and organized; it will make you happy to look at them and therefore motivate you to review and study.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Wear your favorite sweatpants and fuzzy socks to finals week and make sure you are awake enough to function properly.
  • Bring snacks! (I love Kind bars and tangerines!)
  • Have a positive attitude. Chances are if you really think you can do it then you can!!
  • Eat your favorite food after finals. Treat yourself.
  • Use rogerhub.com to calculate the grade you’ll need on your fnal to get your desired grade in the class
  • Being nervous before the test is good because it drives you to study, but it doesn’t help to be anxious as you get the test or while you take it. So breathe and do your best.
  • Make sure to do all the problems you are the most comfortable with to start off with a bang and come back to any problems you might be struggling at the end of the test.
  • Relax. You’ve got this!
