This doesn’t happen in college, but these other 13 moments from HP that are basically you in college are accurate.
I wish you could Ctrl f textbooks
Yeah, that would be awesome. Wait…
You can with Boundless! And they include flashcards and quizzes for way cheaper than your print textbook.
Finals season: Which of these lines are you likely to overhear on campus?
“There isn’t enough room in my brain for another piece of information. I’ve hit 100% capacity” (Yes)
“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” (Sleep deprivation and cramming…We’ve all been there!)
Needless to say, finals week is a block of time that students should approach with caution. But there is no need to panic! If you take advantage of these tips over the next few weeks, the final stretch will be nice & easy.
When you decide the time is right to dominate finals prep, check over your notes to see if you’re missing any major concepts or are confused about a topic. Get in touch with your professor or a peer you trust to get the info you need! Getting questions out of the way will make for a stress-free preparation.
Take a deep breath and lay out your final exam schedule. Are any of your exams or papers on the same day? Start preparing for those overlapping finals first, so you can make sure you’re bringing your A game to both. For the rest, prioritize by date and difficulty for a beautifully organized prep schedule!
Since you’re being proactive and productive about your finals prep, you should have more than enough time to make sure that you eat healthily and catch enough Z’s throughout the rest of the semester. Getting sick before or during finals is easy to prevent if you take care of your studious self!
Take your time
If you start preparing long enough in advanced, there’s no need to rush! Break your cramming streak and tackle your finals one by one. If you take a few hours each week to go through your class material thoroughly, you’ll be a know-it-all (in the best way possible) by the time finals week comes along.
Once you get into the swing of things, preparing for final exams will be a piece of cake! Happy studying!
So not ready to drop a couple hundred on textbooks for next tri.
