  • Studying for final exams can be a stressful period, especially if you're struggling to find the time or the will power to put in the necessary work. However, managing stress while also achieving top notch grades is very doable if you can figure out a study technique and routine that work for you. Here are some some suggestions that can help you to study both effectively and efficiently.

  • Method 1⃣

  • 1⃣Identify your goals. Before you begin studying, it is important to identify what your goals are. Set a target grade for each exam and think about what you will need to do to achieve that grade.

  • 3⃣Begin studying well in advance. This may seem like a bit of a no-brainer, but the earlier you start studying, the more prepared you'll be come exam time. Starting early ensures that you will have time to cover all the necessary material, time to do practice exams & maybe even time to read extra.

  • 4⃣Gather your materials. Gather and organize all of the materials and resources necessary for you to ace your exams. Get together your class notes, old tests and assignments, class handouts, past exam papers and relevant textbooks.

  • 5⃣Choose a study location. Choosing the right location is an important aspect of effective study. The ideal study location will differ from person to person. You need to find what works for you. It may be a process of trial & error until you find the setting that works best for you.

  • 6⃣Go to office hours. Office hours are a service that most students are either too lazy or too afraid to avail of. However, most professors or T.A.'s are delighted to see students taking an interest and will be more than happy to answer any questions or address any concerns that you might have.

  • 7⃣Organize a study group. This can be a great idea for people who have trouble motivating themselves to study. Choose a group of people you like & work well with & organize a 2-3 hr study session once a week. In a group setting, you can bounce ideas off other people, get help and share the workload.

  • Method 2⃣

  • 1⃣Study in 20-50 minute blocks. If you try to study for long periods of time, you will tire easily & your studying wont be very effective. It's much better to study in short 20-50 minute bursts, as during this short space of time you will be able to concentrate fully, maximizing the amount info.

  • 2⃣Take frequent breaks. Taking a break allows your brain to process all of the information it has just absorbed & to refresh before beginning again. You should take 5-10 minute breaks between each 20-50 minute study session & a 30 minute break every 4hrs or so.

  • 3⃣Break up big sections into small, manageable tasks. Studying can seem like a very daunting prospect when you've set yourself the goal of learning an entire topic over the course of 1 extended study session. However, the task will be much more approachable if you break the topic into small sections

  • 4⃣Make effective notes. Making your own personalized notes is essential for effective studying. Well-structured, organized notes can help you to study much more efficiently, as consulting your own tailor-made notes is much quicker than going through a large textbook in search of specific info!

  • 5⃣Use textbooks strategically. Most students are bombarded with textbooks, & reading is often a chore they've come to dread. However, reading your textbooks doesnt need to be as difficult or time-consuming as you think. The key is learning how to read the text more efficiently and effectively.

  • 6⃣Explain the material to someone else. Once you feel like you have a good grasp of the material, ask someone if you can try explaining the material to them. If you can explain it to the other person (who hasn't studied the subject) who can understand, without getting confused you've got it down!

  • 7⃣Test yourself. Once you have covered all of the material that is likely to come up in the final exam, you should consider doing some practice tests. Doing practice tests is an excellent way to test your knowledge and understanding of the material.

  • Method 3⃣

  • 1⃣Use image-word association. Image-word association works by relating an unknown term or concept to an image you are already familiar with. Associating the unfamiliar material with something you already know can help you to remember that material much more easily.

  • 2⃣Acronyms. An acronym is a word in which each individual letter stands for another word or term, making a list of words easier to remember. Make your own acronyms by taking the 1st letter of a list of words/phrase & arranging them in such a way that they form another word that's easily memorizable.

  • 3⃣Mnemonic devices. A mnemonic device is similar to an acronym, except it is used to remember a list of words in a particular order & is usually in the form of a phrase rather than a single word.

  • 4⃣Try the "hide-write-compare" technique. This method works similarly to explaining the subject you are studying to someone else, except its on your own. After you have finished learning a particular subject & have written down all the relevant terms & definitions, cover your notes and write it by ❤

  • 5⃣Try turning the material into a story. Instead of learning off boring, monotonous lists and facts, try turning your study material into an exciting and engaging story which you will easily be able to recall.

  • 6⃣Use analogies. Analogies work by comparing and contrasting terms and ideas in such a way as to make them easy to remember. Using analogies is all about recognizing patterns and how those patterns can apply to a variety of things.

  • 8⃣Determine when to use each method. While each of these methods has it merits, you will need to experiment a little to find a method which works for you. Also keep in mind that some methods work better for certain subjects than others - how you study math problems will be very different than vocab.

  • Method 4⃣

  • 1⃣Eat healthy and get some exercise. The importance of healthy eating & exercise during intense periods of study cannot be understated. Eating right will give you more energy & help to keep you more alert during study sessions, while exercise can help you to clear your head and work out the stress

  • 2⃣Get enough sleep. Aim to get a full 8 hour's of sleep every night while you are studying. It may be tempting to stay up late studying, but remember: you're going to need energy and focus in order to study effectively, which you won't have if you've stayed up late the night before.

  • 3⃣Avoid stressful people. Stress can be extremely contagious, so try to avoid fellow students who are tearing their hair out over the exams, or people who are stressed-out generally. A calm, methodical approach to your work trumps stress every time.

  • 4⃣Say no to distractions. It can be easy to give in to distractions when studying, but try to remember your long-term goals & be firm with yourself. If you allow yourself to be distracted from studying now, you'll end up trying to cram the week before the exam, putting your stress levels really high

  • 5⃣Have some fun. Set yourself a rigorous work schedule during the week and try to stick to it as closely as possible. However, you should allow yourself some free time at the weekend to relax and let your hair down. Go out with some friends, see a movie or just hang out with your family.

  • 6⃣Visualize doing well. Try to visualize yourself feeling confident and relaxed on the day of the exam. Then think about what it would feel like to get your target test grades. Visualization will help motivate you to take the necessary steps to achieve your goals.
