Well what can I say? This semester has flown by with the blink of an eye and now finals are upon us. Now it’s time to buckle down and get your head on straight and study very hard so you can make the best possible grade you can make on the finals tests. This is these next two weeks is what we have been preparing to do for the past 16 weeks of school at UC. There are many ways to do well on the finals at the end of the semester.
One way to do well on the finals is to (of course!) study, but how you study may affect how effective your studying is for you. You should try studying in different places than normal and in places with as little distractions as possible. You could also get a study group to help you with studying and comparing notes and to share study tips with each other. At UC, there is also the ARC (Academic Resource Center) that is available almost all day to aid you in any way possible.
Another good thing to help you prepare for finals week is to miss as few classes as possible the two weeks before finals week and also - get as much sleep as you can! If you miss a lot of classes then you are likely to miss some vital information that you more than likely will want be able to make up in time before finals. So make sure you come to class and be very attentive and take in all you can. Get as much sleep as you can, but don’t neglect your studies!
