- Eat a BIG, healthy breakfast: A bowl of sugary cereal won’t help you remember the longest battle in WWII. Become best friends with fiber and protein. A slice of whole grain toast and with a little peanut butter (this has high levels of both fiber and protein) makes a perfect sandwich. And if you’re really craving some sugar, why not have a peach or a banana? This will satisfy you until lunch, avoiding wasting time on breaks in between study sessions.
- Stay organized and get creative: If this means heading out to Staples and getting hi-lighter sticky notes, then by all means go ahead. Organization is key in studying. Sort out your notes in order of your exam review, and make a checklist of the things you need to cover. This way, you’ll ace that “I didn’t know we had to know this” question all your notes are right where you need them instead of shredded on the floor by your dog.
- Sleep, you’re not nocturnal: Our bodies need sleep in order to function properly. Sleeping fuels your brain like juice to a battery. It’s like plugging in your phone to charge overnight. Getting good shut eye also helps you cope with stress since you’re not complaining about being tired.
- Take breaks: You’re not a robot. By break I don’t mean go on Facebook for 5 hours. Go listen to some music, grab a little treat (cake pops mmm!) or watch an episode of your favourite TV show. And if you’re brave enough to face Mr. Winter, get some fresh air!
- Stay positive: Around exam time, I constantly hear “I’m gonna fail!” This isn’t the type of attitude that’s going to get you an 85%. Have confidence and try your best.
Good luck! Show those exams what you got!
