I have officially made it to finals week in my first semester of Junior year. Unlike some other schools, I had my last week of classes while other schools were taking their finals. Although, it's frustrating, I've made it and I have a few words to say about finals.
Finals week is often the most stressful time for every student because even if you didn't have a ton of work to do during the semester, you most likely have a paper, an exam, group project or just a final exam to finish off the semester.
Finals are something serious to think about, and prepare for, remember that each individual exam isn't that important. What I mean is, none of these finals that we're taking right now will matter 5 years from now. Whether you're a freshman and 5 years from now you'll be newly graduated or a senior who 5 years from now you'll be full on adulting and hopefully have some things figured out.
The grades we receive on each of our finals, projects, exams, and overall class grades don't matter and really have no reflection of your future. Sometimes, you work hard and you don't get the grade you expected, other times they do, but with that being said, there's no reason to stress yourself out to the point where it will affect your performance.
Remember to eat, hydrate and sleep. Pulling an all nighter all of finals week will end up affecting your performance rather than help you. Remember, it's just an exam and you will make it through and you will pass that class, and at the end of the day you will graduate and hopefully go on to do amazing things. Good luck.
