With the term nearly half over, there’s one thing on every student’s mind: midterms. Many students struggle to feel prepared simply because they don’t take the right approach to studying. These three key study tips will help every student feel prepared to ace those midterms!
Tip #1: Make a Plan
The last thing you want is to spend so much time studying chemistry that you forget to study for psychology, so a study plan is crucial to feeling prepared for exams. Start by determining your priorities. For example, if you already know the geography material, you might just need a brief review session. On the other hand, if you still have questions about a particular course, you may want to schedule in different types of study strategies, like finding a study buddy and creating note cards.
Next, pencil in all your school, work, social, familial, and other obligations on the calendar for the week (or however much study time you need) leading up to midterms. Schedule several blocks of dedicated study time around those obligations, including the specific subjects based on your priorities.
