How To Prepare Yourself For Semester Finals
Your Spring break has come to an end and it is back to reality this week. You just got your scores back from midterms and you did better than you expected. You either went to South Padre, Miami, or SXSW to celebrate your accomplishments and to get away from any thought of getting an education. Congratulations, you played yourself.
You have found yourself back in that hour-long graphic design course, just waiting for your professor to say something about what will be on the final exam. There is no need to panic, this article will give you a few pointers on how to be ready, so you don’t have to get ready.
You have a stickler for a professor, he will probably give you a lengthy review sheet for practice. Take advantage of this review because more than likely it will be a replica of the actual exam. This is the time for you to get all the answers corrected without any penalties. Fill out the review sheet to the best of your ability, this will help you remember the answers better so questions can look a little familiar on test day. Once you are finished, collaborate with a classmate to compare answers. You may be wrong or you may be right, never assume. It is perfectly fine to get a second opinion when you are unsure. After getting a second pair of eyes to look over your answers, take it to your professor. Ask them if they are able to score your review sheet to see what you may have gotten incorrect.
I’m going to let you in on a secret.
What many students fail to realize is that if you attend office hours to speak with your professor at least 3 times out of the entire semester, is almost guaranteed they will automatically give you a passing grade. Make yourself rememberable. The conversation in their office can literally be about the dumbest things on earth, but as long as they see their students making the effort, you got the grade you want.
For students taking multiple choice exams, or courses such as health, algebra, or psychology, create a study group. Usually, study groups do not always go well because students tend to get off topic, but if you guys dedicate 1 hour of full force reviewing, this method would be great for passing the exam.
Last, but not least, it is vital that you get much rest. Allow yourself time to sleep. The more you cram the less likely you are going to remember the most important data. Information only sticks with you if your brain is fully charged and relaxed. Do not result to drinking or smoking because it will not enhance the learning process.
If all else fails, create a group me with your classmates on test day and drop the answers below, but you did not hear that from me.
