Midterms Study Tips
For many students, midterms can be a stressful time. From hours of reviewing notes to rereading chapters, midterms can easily lead to a lot of pressure and worry. Fortunately, there are many practices students can implement into their lives in the weeks leading up to exams to help them perform as well as possible.
Studying in a group with your classmates is a great way to prepare for an exam. By setting an arranged time for the study group to meet, you can avoid procrastination. Study groups also allow you to fill in the gaps in your knowledge and learn from the study methods of your peers.
It can be tempting to cram in as much information as possible through all night study sessions. However, the truth is that getting a solid night of sleep is a lot more beneficial than skimping out on sleep to study. Sleep is a crucial part of functioning your best when taking a test, so it is important to get at least eight hours of sleep the night before test day.
Studying for hours on end can cause you to be overwhelmed and stressed. Taking breaks in intervals throughout your study sessions can allow you to clear your mind and be more focused. Going for a walk, getting fresh air, or having a snack are all great examples of taking a break.
Everyone on the Sturgis StormWatch team sends Sturgis students our best wishes during midterms!
