How to Survive Final Exams

Developing a positive mindset can act as motivational boosters and fight exam stress. There are ways you can encourage your brain to adopt this attitude to help you produce outstanding exam results:

1. Plan your Success Strategy

The final examinations are condensed into a few weeks. Once you start, it’s difficult to structure your preparation time. It’s crucial that you have a study schedule planned previously, bearing in mind the time you have available as well as the subjects you need to study.

2. Actively Review your Study Notes

Don’t just study the topics you have covered most recently. Finals exams include questions related to the entire subject and the exam questions will assess the overall ability of the student.

It’s important to master the foundation of the subject by covering introductory theory before advancing to deeper topics. Flashcards can help you understand key definitions and terms to build your base knowledge. Using these study aids will also allow you to quickly review your notes before the exams.

3. Reduce the Clutter

If you have to study previous topics again as well as cover new areas, you will start to wonder where you will get the time. The key is to reduce. Yes, you read that correctly, reduce. This does not mean that you should remove topics or paragraphs at random. You should find a way to reduce the volume of what you have to study without harming your level of knowledge.

The key is to use Mind Maps. The trick with mind mapping is to use keywords and logically relate them in a way that your brain is capable of filling in the gaps. Your brain should be capable of developing a paragraph with sense for every node or keyword outlined in the map. Create Mind Maps with the free GoConqr tool, it’s free!
