IT’S CRUNCH TIME!!!
FINALS ARE NEXT WEEK
All scholars are required to take their final exams for each class during finals week. There will not be a test make-up after break, so if your scholar misses their final during this week, they will receive a zero.
Here are some tips to ensure you have a great start to each day through the week of finals:
1. Review your study notes.
Use the night before for simple revision. Don’t look at anything new, review the study notes you have created during your study sessions over the past few days.
2. Revise topics one by one.
Work your way through your notes, covering topics one by one to ensure you understand the material. If you don’t, go back and find clarity.
3. Don’t study too late.
Late night cram sessions aren’t a very effective way to study. It may seem like you’re making the most of your time by studying until the last minute, but by not giving your brain a chance to rest you’ll have a harder time remembering the information you studied.
4. Eat a good healthy dinner.
Giving your mind the brain power it needs is important if you want to do well on your test. That means eating a good meal the night before.
5. Prepare for the morning.
Gather all the materials you’ll need for your test the next day. Make sure you have extra pens, pencils, erasers, and any tools you need (like a ruler or calculator). Pack everything into your backpack THE NIGHT BEFORE.
6. Get some exercise.
After spending time reviewing for your test, get some exercise by going outside for a short walk or a bike ride. Getting a little bit of exercise will help reduce any stress you are feeling and recharge your brain.
7. Give your brain a break.
Take some time before bed to put away your study notes and relax. Read a book, write in a journal, or talk to your family. PUT DOWN THE ELECTRONICS. This will help you wind down before bed, making it easier to get a good night’s sleep.
8. Get a good sleep.
One of the most important things the night before a test is to get a full night’s sleep so your brain can remember what you’ve studied. Make sure you go to bed at a decent time so you can wake up on test day feeling refreshed and well-rested.
9. Set your alarm.
Set your alarm so you don’t oversleep the morning of your test. DO NOT BE TARDY. Give yourself some extra time in the morning to eat a healthy breakfast and get ready for the day without feeling rushed.
10. Know that your instructors love you and are rooting for you through each day. You’ve got this!
