With the end of the school year approaching, students are anxious to finally leave. Despite having summer so close, it is a time students are also dreading as the last four days of school are filled with final exams for the majority of students. It can be a very stressful time, but there are many tips and tricks to help manage these four days.

1. Eat a healthy breakfast

Although this tip is sometimes overlooked, eating a healthy breakfast will help give the student energy to get through any test; having a nutritious meal before school will give you enough energy for the day because you are sitting down for multiple hours completing the exam. Also, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are all half days, meaning no lunches are served, so it is important to have a big meal before.

2. Get lots of sleep

This tip might be one of the most important ones. So many students the night before are cramming studying and sleeping past midnight, but it is important to be well rested for the morning because you are going to need to focus for a long time. On the night before an exam, students should get at least seven hours of sleep.

3. Plan ahead and study

Planning ahead of the tests and studying beforehand is very critical. Knowing the information is what is going to determine if someone’s going to be successful or not. In addition, studying should not be done just the day before the exam. Start studying atleast a week before, evenly distributing the amount of information to study throughout the week. This way, you will learn more information, and not have to study for hours on one day.

If you follow these steps, you are bound to do spectacular on your finals, being able  to move on to summer stress free knowing you have done well on your exams.
