The final push of the semester is quickly approaching and for some students, final exams are the last resort for salvaging it. With that being said, there is no way to regain points the student has missed throughout the semester, but it’s time to max out the potential points on the final.
1. Review The Syllabus
The syllabus is the road map through the semester and offers a fantastic starting point if a study guide hasn’t been given. It’s impossible to relearn and entire semester’s worth of information, but by paying attention to the highlights on the syllabus should help.
2. Study In Groups
It might not seem like the most logical thing to do, but studying in groups offers students the chance to share the information that they’ve collected over the semester and provide each other with additional insights.
It’s hard to fight the desire to cram all the way up until test time, but if your student is exhausted during the test, odds are their score will suffer. When the student is sleeping, their mind has a chance to incubate and solidify the facts and knowledge they’ve been pouring over for the days leading up to finals and apply it to the test.
