Exams – the Final Push

Girl surrounded by books looks worried while reading

This is dedicated to all the students who are fed up studying this semester. I get it. You’ve been studying for months (or maybe just the last few weeks), and you’ve had enough. I feel it too. You’re sick of reading your notes, and you’re tired of regurgitating the same information over and over again. But here’s the thing, in a short couple of weeks those exams will be a distant thing of the past, and you’ll be back to working, parenting, or whatever it is you do when you’re not being a slave to your books.

That subject that you hated? You’ll never have to do it again (provided you pass of course…). So, now’s the time to knuckle down and get the job done.

If you can’t stand revising any more, try something new. Watch a video about a tricky topic on YouTube. Draw a picture about one of your subjects. Try explaining a topic to a friend or family member who isn’t familiar with it (pets can also be quite receptive). Do anything to keep these topics fresh in your mind until after the exam, when you can forget any piece of extraneous knowledge and keep the stuff that you need for future years.

Good luck everyone, and keep going. You’re almost there.
