Finals are coming up, signaling the end of the school year and that it’s time for students to check the mail every day to get to their report card before their parents. But if you’re stressing out right now about if you’re going to make it through finals season, well, it’s time to stress a little less! Here are some tips that will help you pass your finals!
Cry constantly to your smart friends
If you just sob uncontrollably in front of your friends for days at a time, they’ll definitely help you prepare hardcore for your final. The key is to be as pitiful as possible so they willingly take the time to help you master a subject.
Cry constantly to your teachers
If the Plan A that is breaking down in front of your friends fails, there’s always Plan B. Teachers would rather deal with anything than be responsible for a crying student, so go in there and open the floodgates! They’ll be sure to offer you some tutoring or printout review sheets (or I guess you could always just ask).
Use memorization tricks
If you do really weird things while studying then you’ll be sure to remember the info during a test. Have someone scream a formula in your face, and during the exam, you’ll think about how scared the formula made you feel. Even chewing the same gum during a test you chewed while studying will help spark memories!
Teach someone else the material
Even if you don’t know the info that well yourself, if you teach someone what you’re learning, you’re more likely to remember it yourself! So make a Tumblr post or go on a Twitter rant about abiotic factors — TEACH THE WORLD!
Use a reward system
Putting off studying is the easiest thing to do because there are hundreds of other things you’d rather be doing. One minute you’re looking up warm water density, and the next thing you know, you’re watching a YouTube video titled “Scandinavian people try bananas for the first time”. You know you don’t care about Scandinavian people OR bananas, but it’s still better than studying! Instead, try telling yourself that when you’ve finish studying a certain number of pages, you can eat a food you like! It’s just like dog training!
At the end of the day, it’s just an exam. If you studied hard and memorized what you needed to memorize, you should be fine!
