Ten tips to ace exam season

Exam season is a tough time for many students. So, if you’re looking for tips to help you stay on top of your exams this year, look no further – we’ve got you covered. 

1. Create the ultimate schedule 

One reason assignments and deadlines can become overwhelming as exam season approaches is because often the details are listed in various places. A great tip for students is to create the ultimate schedule for yourself.  

Include every assignment, every essay and exam you have coming up. Once you have all the information you can print it out and display it in your room, make it your laptop background or save it on your phone. You’ll always know when the next piece of work is due, and it will help you stay organised. 

2. Keep a diary 

A calendar or diary is another way to keep track of your deadlines. Here you can be more detailed and include classes, tutor meetings, group study sessions and other appointments that will support your learning. 

You can also add other important plans like events, shopping days and your study-free days. It may feel like your diary is packed, but as exam season gets busier, you’ll be happy you planned for everything. 

3. Create to-do lists 

To-do lists are an effective way to break down the important things into smaller, more manageable tasks. Write a list every morning of what you need to complete, including all tasks, from finding sources to writing the first 1,000 words of your essay.

Not only will you remember everything for that day, but you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment as you tick off each item. This will keep you motivated to continue.
