Midterm Tips

Hey everyone,

I just took my first midterm exam of college last week. I am just going to share some tips that I wish I would know known before taking this test…

  1. Do not get to overwhelmed by all the information, YES IT IS A LOT, but just try to get a head start and break it up and study a little bit every night the week before and it will not feel like you are reading forever.
  2. Next, email your Professor/TA. They want to help. They want you to do well in their class. Shoot them an email asking them for some tips on how to study for the exam and most times they will be very happy to help you.
  3. If there is a test review, GO TO IT. Test reviews will give you an insight into what the professor is looking for on a test.
  4. I always like to make a study plan, where am I going to study, how long am I going to study for how many study breaks do I get. I set a timer for 25 minutes and after that, I get a 5-minute break from what I am studying.
  5. Lastly, do not lose the priority of your mental health. Make yourself the priority and be kind to your mind. I like to have some positive affirmations when I start to slip into a negative headspace…
            1.  I AM CAPABLE OF BEING A GREAT STUDENT
            2. I AM EXCITED TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW TODAY
            3. I AM DOING MY BEST
            4. Etc.

I hope this helps when you are going through your midterms. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!

love,

Merrin
