With March madness officially over, it marks the end of epic slam-dunks, buzzer beaters and Cinderella stories. However, for college students a different madness is right around the corner; – a madness consisting of epic amounts of flash cards, lots of coffee and all-nighters. Yep, this would be known as May madness. Or, the month where college students all over the country collectively stress over finals and the thought of explaining to their folks that they managed to fail English 101.
Let’s face it – most of you don’t start studying for finals until the last minute. Could there be a correlation between late test taking preparation and poor grades? Let’s go with yes. Give yourself every advantage possible and start preparing for your finals a few weeks early. This all starts with time management. If you don’t have a calendar of some kind, you need to go get one. Get yourself into the habit of blocking out a specific time every day for studying. Mark down the times you want to study and schedule everything else around it. This will make studying your top priority and help prevent you from blowing it off at the last minute. Not sure how much time you should dedicate to studying? According to Bucks.edu, the average student should spend 2 hours studying for every hour of class time.
