Down to the Wire

Down to the Wire

This is the time of year when everything is just absolutely so stagnant. We’re a few weeks from the end, and with only three (not even full weeks) until finals, everything is getting down to the wire. While it feels like our grades are pretty much where they’re going to be at for the end of the year, don’t forget to check and make sure that you double check with your syllabi to ensure that there isn’t any surprise papers or projects before finals week.

Another good idea would be to double check when your finals are, and what kind of a final they are. Some professors prefer doing a final in the form of a paper, where as some prefer to do a project or a cumulative exam. If you’re lucky, the exam might not even be cumulative, and just over what you’ve learnt since the last test.

No matter the format of your final, if it’s a particularly hard subject for you, start studying now–it’s recommended by pretty much everyone that you start studying ahead of time. Cramming the night before the final is doable, but increases your chance of a bad grade. Putting a semester’s worth of information in your head over the span of a few hours is near impossible and extremely stressful.

Best of luck these next few weeks!
