10 Steps To Acing Your Final Exams

10 Steps To Acing Your Final Exams

Stress less, relax more.


Finals make everyone stressed! Know that you are not alone. Here are some of my tips and trick to acing your final exams:

1. Get plenty of sleep

Make sure to get plenty of sleep leading up to your final exams. Your brain does not function properly without enough sleep. Sleep makes a difference in improving your score.

2. Eat well throughout the week

It is important to eat well during finals to fuel you to study productively throughout the week leading to the exam. You need to make sure to take care of yourself and eat throughout the day to keep your mind focused.

3. Stay positive

Tell yourself that you can do this. Stay positive throughout the week and focus on what you know instead of stressing about what you do not know.

4. Stay organized

Stay organized and write down everything you need to accomplish. Color coat, get a folder, and organize your material so you can find it. You do not want to be looking for the notes you need to memorize in the 11th hour because you did not set them aside in advance.

5. Manage your time

Get a planner and write down what needs to be completed. Organize a schedule and set a time that works best for you. Motivate yourself to get the work done and do not wait until the last minute.

6. Study in advance

Sit down and begin to study. Even if it is for 15 minutes a day, studying in advance can go a long way.

7. Listen to classical music as you study

Classical music helps the mind focus on the material being studied.

8. Write your notes by hand

Handwriting notes helps you grasp the material being studied. The writer gains a connection with the words that are being added to the paper. I find writing notes to be helpful when I need to memorize something.

9. Relax

Make sure to take some time to relax and unwind from the stress of exams. Focus on you and take a nap or watch Netflix to help the stress go away.

10. Go to bed early the night before exams

Sleep makes all the difference. DO not cram!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
