Finals are easily the most stressful time of the year for all high school students of all ages. The studying, stress, and confusion can get you down, but you don’t have to let it if you plan out your studying accordingly. Although it may seem useless, having a solid study plan can make a huge difference and impact your grades in a positive way. It will also give you a sense of control and confidence in your knowledge of Math, Science, English, or whatever classes you may be studying for. Like any plan, there are steps and key components that must be executed for it to work. When it comes to studying for something as big as finals, there are more than a few key steps to learning efficiently and effectively. The first step would be to find a calm, quiet location to study. Ideal locations include the library, your bedroom, or even outdoors away from distractions. As we all know, less distraction allows us to focus more on the work at hand. Secondly, effective and organized notes create a clear and focused pathway for the class material. Disorganized notes will only confuse students and make the material more difficult to understand. Third, the use of simple pens, highlighters, and colors make a surprising difference. It may seem trivial at first, but can actually make sections easier to categorize. For example, you could make your vocabulary green, main ideas blue, and details pink. This use of color is easy and paints a clear picture obvious enough for anyone to understand. Finally, no one should ever force themselves to study. Tiredness or the inability to focus should not be ignored. It does no good to force yourself to study and is very trivial in fact, if you are not going to try. So, go out and find what works for you Huskies in order to do your absolute best on the finals this semester!
