How To Survive Exam Week: Stay In Tact And Alive

Voila! My foolproof guide for getting through the stressful exam period, which by the way, seems to plague us all at one point or another.

Although I have 3 consecutive exams coming up, I know that if I follow the below, I should be perfectly fine. Best of luck everyone!

1. Select a safe study space.

By safe, I mean distraction-free. Phones away, electronics off, parents gone, just you and a textbook. Think of it as a date with a binder, a textbook, and some notes.

2. Seek help.

If need be. Ask your teachers any questions you have, ask your peers for missing handouts, ask your parents to leave you alone.

3. Start studying.

How else are you supposed to pass your exams? And no, cramming is not synonymous with studying.

4. Skimp on the coffee, caffeine, cocaine, etc.

Cease all addictions until after exam period. Remember short term pain results in long term gain.

5. Stop to blow off steam.

Take a break, take a walk, take some time off between study sessions to avoid burnout.

6. Sorry you worked hard but possibly partied harder?

Prepare for the worse but expect the best. It’s not the end of the world. So embrace the inevitable? Albeit an F to you might be an A minus.

7. Celebrate!

Perhaps you should postpone step number seven until you see your report card.

One last thing before I go, I will do my best to continue posting on my social media accounts during this time but I can’t guarantee anything. Even so, I know I have the most understanding fans in the whole wide world. Thank you.
