Exams are coming fast, do you know how to prepare? Exam week is a stressful time for students and you'll want to make sure you’re fully prepared for each one. There are many ways to make sure you're ready for each one!
This week, teachers will be handing out study guides and starting to prepare students. Start studying as soon as possible. There are NHS tutors available to help you study after school every day except for Wednesdays. They can be found after school in the library. You can also schedule a time with a tutor before school or during A or B lunch in a teacher’s room. They can help you go over material, or even give you helpful study tips to better prepare yourself. If you need an NHS tutor, you can talk to Mr. Deschamp, Ms. Williamson, or Michael Dugas.
Also, feel free to ask teachers for help. They are more than willing to do everything possible to help you do well. Make sure to go over old tests and look over homework assignments. You can use Quizlets or Kahoots from earlier in the semester. Most teachers spend much of the whole week before exams reviewing and going over content.
Studying isn’t the only thing you need to do before exams. The night before, make sure to go to bed early and get a good night's sleep. On the day of, get up early, make sure to have all of your materials, and eat a good breakfast. Make sure to arrive at school on time so you aren’t rushing. Minimize your stress so you can be relaxed when you take your test.
Overall, exams don't have to be stressful, as long as you are well prepared and follow good habits in the days leading up to your exam.
