Finals+Study+Tips%3A+Conquer+Upcoming+Exams+Confidently

Finals week is right around the corner from Dec. 18 to Dec. 20, 2023. These times can be stressful, but efficient study strategies allow students to conquer upcoming exams confidently.

Often, students get overwhelmed with the work presented and put things off until the last minute. Avoiding procrastination can be difficult, but there are many ways to overcome procrastination.

In order to feel less stressed, it’s essential to divide your tasks into manageable parts. Instead of completing a lot of work simultaneously, focus on one thing at a time, making the process easier to start as you build momentum. The assignment overall becomes less stressful and more achievable.

Studying in a room with distractions causes many students to need help understanding the material. A beneficial study environment can positively impact your focus, productivity, and learning experience. Studying in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with minimal interruptions would be best. At Franklin High School, the Media Center or the WiFi Cafe are available.

Students often need help with time management, mainly because of extracurricular activities, clubs, sports, work, and taking care of younger siblings. Creating a study plan can benefit students by ensuring enough time out of class to study and complete assignments.

Setting boundaries from distractions like cell phones allows students to give their full attention to their work while studying. It can become tempting to check notifications, scroll through social media, or respond to messages while your phone is within reach. Keeping your phone out of sight can minimize the temptation, allowing students to complete tasks efficiently.

Taking care of mental health can improve overall productivity. Giving yourself a break, typically after long studying, recharges your brain. It can also prevent mental health fatigue because it provides time to relax, reducing stress.

Prioritizing physical health is also essential. According to numerous studies, sleep allows your body to rest and can “be crucial to your brain’s ability to learn and remember.” Getting enough sleep benefits your mind’s capacity to study and makes it easier to retain knowledge.

Although finals week can be intense, many strategies exist to keep a positive mindset and manage stress.
